Tasha Langdon and I have co-taught Marquette University’s Upward Bound program for well over a decade. She’s very resourceful, energetic, and knowledgeable. Working with up to 45 high school students in the Introduction to Engineering course, Ms. Langdon has developed many creative project ideas for keeping the students engaged, energized and curious about engineering regardless of whether or not they intend to pursue this as a career. Ms. Langdon has also provided professionalism seminars during the National Society of Black Engineers regional conferences. Her presentations were not only informative but provided relevant, “real life” applications that could be used immediately. The attendees were so intrigued by her delivery and presentation that many stayed well after the seminar ended to learn more from her and about her. I have known Tasha Langdon for nearly 20 years and have always known her to be competent, proficient, focused, and driven for success, all while maintaining a cheerful and friendly demeanor.

She teaches love not just in lessons but in actions. She encourages us and makes us feel like our voices matter. She makes herself relatable, and helps us realize although adults and youth are not the same we struggle with similar issues.

Latasha Langdon, CEO of Divine Destinies, is a dynamic and outstanding educator. She developed a curriculum for our community youth entrepreneur program that served high school students on the Near West Side of Chicago. She also provided training to the teachers and coordinators of the program. She was very professional and flexible when we presented her with changes. Her teaching style is very personal which allows the participants to get the most out of the programming. This teaching style is evident in the curriculum that she develops which, for our program, was amazing. For each session of the program, the students had real life, engaging activities related to the topic being discussed. The activities were fun and well thought out. This maximized the learning of the students, and by the end of the program, the students understood what it takes to be an entrepreneur, as well as understood all facets of a business plan. I would highly recommend Divine Destines for curriculum development and/or workshop facilitation. Divine Destines exceeded my expectation and is ABSOLUTELY AWESOME!
