SYLACAUGA, Ala. – Fayetteville High School has found its new principal.
At last Thursday’s meeting, Talladega County Board of Education approved the recommendation of Brittanni Brown as principal of Fayetteville High School.
Brown is a 2006 graduate of Fayetteville High School and earned her bachelor’s in comprehensive general science from Troy University in 2009. In 2014, Brown received a master’s in instructional leadership from Samford University.
Brown began her career as a 7-12 grade Science teacher at Winterboro High School in 2009 before being named the technology integration specialist at B.B. Comer High School in 2013. In 2015, she was hired as the technology integration specialist at Childersburg High School before being named the assistant principal in 2016.
“I’m truly excited for the opportunity to be going back home and getting to serve the Fayetteville community,” said Brown. “God called me to the mission field when I was teenager. At that time I didn’t fully understand the capacity in which I would serve or that my ministry would be working with children in public schools. It wasn’t until after I began volunteering at the Troy Public Library to tutor high students that were struggling to pass the AHSGE that I realized what God meant for my life in regards to ministry. I changed my career path to pursue a career in education and I will never forget that feeling of relief, joy, and peace I felt immediately after telling my advisor what I wanted to do. She of course was amazing and understanding and found a way to make my almost completed degree work towards getting me certified to be a teacher. I’m a firm believer that staying faithful to God’s word and trusting Him has led me back to my home in Fayetteville. So many wonderful mentors, in and out of professional settings, have helped me grow and develop into the instructional leader I am today. But most importantly, God’s sovereignty and faithfulness receive all the glory.”
“Ms. Brown is one of the most creative and innovative leaders in Talladega County Schools,” said TCBOE superintendent Dr. Suzanne Lacey. “She was an exemplary science teacher early in her career and excels in establishing and promoting project-based learning and STEM practices in the classroom. Much of her career has been defined by training other teachers throughout the district. She is an advocate for professional development for teachers and supports teachers extensively in becoming experts in their craft of teaching.”
Brown will begin her duties on July 1.
