La’Tonya Campbell, 36


Educator, Springfield Public Schools

Charity: Boys & Girls Clubs


Educator, athlete, mother, student, coach and wife are some of the many hats La’Tonya Campbell wears on a weekly basis. When she’s not teaching geometry at Central High School, Campbell can often be found studying for her own tests as she pursues a master’s degree in education administration. She also works part time at the gym where one of her daughters takes gymnastic lessons. A lifelong athlete, Campbell started playing basketball in fifth grade, a skill that would eventually earn her a full-ride scholarship to Northeastern State University in Oklahoma. 

Inspired by her parents’ hard work ethic, Campbell was the first person in her family to graduate from college. As a teacher, Campbell passes on the importance of education to her students. “I wanted to become a teacher to strive to be a role model for future generations,” she says.

Campbell’s love of fitness continues to this day, and she makes sure to work out three to four times a week. She also loves to spend time with her husband, Terry, and their three daughters, Kamari, Aryah and Joslyn. Campbell makes an effort to have family meals around the dinner table as often as possible.
