We help youth ages 4-18 and their families See, Say, and Succeed with Math!
LaToniya A. Jones has an affinity for developing more mathematically literate communities (formally and informally). Ms. Jones enjoys designing innovative experiences to help youth, families, and educators see, say, and do math. She welcomes the challenge of removing fear, anxiety, access to resources, and myths about who can and cannot thrive with math through her work as a nonprofit founder, consultant, college administrator, and speaker.
LaToniya was educated in the Detroit Public Schools District and graduated from Cass Technical High School. She earned a bachelors degree in Secondary Mathematics Education from Concordia University and a masters of education degree in Educational Leadership and Administration from Wayne State University.
Ms. Jones is a former middle school principal. She has empowered more than 8,000 youth and families in Southeast Michigan and Ohio during annual mini-conferences, math clubs, enrichment programs, and summer camps through POWER Organization (POWER Org Math), an educational nonprofit organization. POWER Institute, LLC is the engine that she uses to successfully coach professionals and teacher candidates with closing achievement gaps, redesigning middle school environments, effective test preparation and workforce development tools.
LaToniya is the Program Director of Developmental Education, mentors faculty members, and conducts training sessions for new faculty members for various departments. She proudly serves on the Arts and Scraps board of directors and is in her second term as the Vice President of Post-Secondary Education for the Detroit Area Council of Teachers of Mathematics.
Coaching others towards their life goals and cultivating positive learning communities is her mission, passion, and purpose in life! She is inspired to build a legacy of compassion, leadership, and entrepreneurship for her 3 sons.
