Closing the achievement gap, recruiting and retaining the highest quality teachers and strengthening community partnerships are among Dr. La Tonya Mayfield’s goals as a Crowley ISD trustee.

“There’s not much these students can’t do,” Mayfield said. “With the proper teaching, reinforcement at home and application outside of school, these children can soar.”

A mother of two Crowley ISD students, Mayfield wants to see CISD become the district of choice for families moving to the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex area.

Mayfield’s excited about the MyChoice Programs the district offers, the marketing of the district’s innovative activities and how eager the community is to see the district flourish.

“They want to see their schools succeed,” she said. “They are energized by what’s taking place. I hear it over and over again, they are excited and waiting for a shift to happen.”

Mayfield works in Human Resources in higher education, specifically serving as a manager of organizational development and employee engagement. Prior to working in higher education, she worked in a similar capacity as vice president of leadership and organization development for JP Morgan Chase.

A first-generation college student, she considers herself a lifelong learner who knows the value of education. Mayfield has a doctorate in Applied Technology, Performance Improvement from the University of North Texas, a master’s degree in Human Resource Management and Training from Amberton University and a bachelor’s degree in Speech Communication from Texas Christian University.

Mayfield's son participates in athletics and her daughter is involved in a MyChoice Program, both in Crowley ISD.

Fun Fact: Mayfield, whose friends often compare her to Oprah Winfrey, is an aspiring talk show host and author. Surviving breast cancer, she said, helped her feel like she can do anything.
