Greetings! My name is La’Tonya Hannah, and I am pleased to be the School Counselor for Walker Park Elementary School. To me being an Educator means being in the business of student success and I look forward to an amazing school year! I anticipate getting to know the students and families of WPES, building positive relationships, and engaging in meaningful interactions.
My background includes 25+ years as a professional Educator consisting of classroom teaching and counseling. I was born and raised in Philadelphia, PA where I began my career as an Educator. I relocated to Georgia in 2004 with my family. I am the proud mother of 4 wonderful children and 3 grandchildren who are my world. They keep me motivated, while providing me with daily doses of laughter, hugs, and smiles. My hobbies include spending time with my family, traveling, decorating, and reading.
As your school counselor, I am dedicated to ensuring that your child has every opportunity to succeed in a safe, nurturing, environment. Helping students break down barriers to academic and personal success is my passion. My goal is that your child will be enriched intellectually, emotionally, and socially so that they will become productive citizens and life-long learners. By investing in our children today we create opportunities to yield bright futures and shape successful adults tomorrow.
WPES understands that every child is unique, which is why we offer a variety of services to meet every child's needs. I serve our student body by connecting with our students personally, socially, and emotionally. By offering individual counseling, small group counseling, and SEL lessons are just a few ways I interact with and engage our students. In addition, the counseling department offers many programs and resources to meet the needs of WPES families. Please feel free to contact me if I can be of any assistance. I am so happy to be here to serve you!
