Brittany Williams, Kindergarten teacher
University Charter School in Livingston, Alabama
Brittany Williams pursued her passion for teaching at the University of West Alabama and received her bachelor’s degree in Early Childhood and Elementary Education. This year she has entered her third year teaching Kindergarten and is currently pursuing her Masters in Elementary Education. Brittany is a Black Belt Teacher Corps Scholar, became an advocate for the I Am a Rural Teacher Campaign, and Rural Schools Collaborative and Alabama Humanities Foundation Grant recipient. As she enters into her third year of teaching, she has grown to recognize the uniqueness, as well as the joys and realities of teaching in a rural area. She believes being part of an intentional council of new rural teachers would support other young educators at the start of their career and shed light on the beauty of teaching in a rural area.
The Young Educators' Advisory Council is an initiative for early career rural teachers. These young educators will serve RSC as advisors to strengthen
our mission in the recruitment, preparation, and retention of rural teachers. YEA council members will serve for two years engaging in online conversations. We are so excited to announce to you these ten
rural school advocates.
