Meet the Assistant Principal

LaTonda Cherry


My name is LaTonda Cherry and I am honored and humbled to serve as the Assistant Principal at Riverchase Elementary.

I was born and raised in Plainview, TX. I attended Angelo State University, where I received a Bachelor of Science degree in Early Childhood Education. I also hold a Master of Education degree in Curriculum and Instruction with a concentration in reading from Concordia University - Portland, Oregon. I earned my principal certification from the University of Texas Arlington.

I started my teaching career at Steubing Ranch Elementary (North East ISD) in San Antonio, TX in 2005. In 2012, my family & I relocated to the Dallas-Fort Worth area and I joined Carrollton-Farmers Branch ISD as a first grade teacher at Tom Landry Elementary. Prior to becoming an Assistant Principal, I was a classroom teacher at Landry, a reading recovery teacher at McLaughlin-Strickland, and an early literacy instructional coach at McKamy and Riverchase.

I have been married Ed Cherry Jr since 2007 and we have two children, Reagan (13) and Trendon (10). We are a big sports family so I love cheering our children on as we coach and support them in basketball, football, and track & field.

I am blessed to be apart of the Riverchase family and it’s an honor to meet the needs of our students, families, teachers, and staff. I am invested and passionate about the educational, emotional, and social journey of each our Eagles. Please let me know how I can best serve you!
