Latonya Mekis


My name is Latonya Mekis and I am ready for my second year at Mallory Elementary. Last year, I learned a lot and grew with my second graders. I am excited to get to work with you and your students. Before coming to Mallory, I worked as a paraprofessional in Camdenton. I earned a Bachelors in Elementary Education and a Masters in Education: Literacy at Missouri State University. 

I am from Lebanon, Missouri. I am married to my high school sweetheart, Anthony Mekis. We have two beautiful girls, Kiara and Elizabeth. Our family also includes two Huskies, Loki and Akima. When I am not at school or spending time with my family, I like to Crossfit, read and watch new movies.
