Ms. Latoya Forrest-Heard

Hi there! My name is Latoya Forrest-Heard. I am a native of Winona, MS. I graduated from the Mississippi University for Women in 2008 with a B.S. degree in Communications and a minor in English. I recently relocated back to my home state from the Greater Houston, Texas area. I served several years in the Mississippi Army National Guard as a Cable Systems Installer. This is my second year teaching, and I am so excited to be a member of the Bayou View Middle School Team! I am teaching 6th Grade ELA. I look forward to working with our awesome staff, community and parents to make sure that our students have a safe and successful school year! Please feel free to contact me at if you have any questions or concerns.
