Brittany Fatoma, is a southern belle from North Carolina and a proud HBCU graduate of Oakwood University. She received her undergraduate degree in Elementary Education and also attended La Sierra University and graduated with a master's degree in Educational Administration and Leadership. She spent eight years as an elementary school teacher and teaching methods coach. Currently, she is pursuing an EdD in Educational Leadership, Policy, and Analysis at Mizzou.
Brittany is honored to serve as the newly appointed Executive Director of Worley Street Roundtable. Brittany describes her first Community dinner experience under Dr. Adrian Clifton's leadership."Dr. Clifton welcomed me with a big hug and connected me to a network of people to help and support me as an educator new to the area. I desire to expand this even more. One way I’ve done that is by creating the “I See You” Teachers of Color support network."
For Brittany, students come first, and students need a diverse group of dynamic educators. She also believes in community and working together to create a safe and equitable space for everyone, especially Black and Brown people. Outside of teaching and leading, you can find Brittany growing an indoor potted garden or chasing her very active and intuitive baby girl.
She encourages, "Let’s continue the work of empowering people to access their power and use it to create social change."
