Teach for America–St. Louis
Executive Director
The child of educators and a St. Louis native, Brittany Packnett taught third grade in southeast Washington, D.C., in 2007. Following her time in the classroom, Brittany worked in federal education policy and advocacy for low-income students around the nation as a Capitol Hill staffer and a director of government affairs for Teach for America. Recently, Packnett has been working to amplify the voice of young people in Ferguson through national and international press and open letters, facilitating the #FergusonFireside Conference Calls with America, engaging students in critically conscious leadership development, and helping lead Teach for Ferguson during unexpected school closings. In 2014, Brittany was appointed to the Ferguson Commission and to President Obama’s Task Force on 21st Century Policing. In January, she was named by Time magazine as one of 12 New Faces of Black Leadership.
