Storytelling & Development

Brittney Jones
Director of Development

Brittney joins Leading Educators as Director of Development, leading our national fundraising efforts.

A native of New Orleans, Brittney has always had a passion for helping others and a strong understanding of the inequities that exist for families from low-income backgrounds. She began her career in education working with the School Support Center for KIPP New Orleans Schools where she served in a number of roles focused on network level operations and fundraising support. Most recently as Director of Development with Teach For America- South Louisiana, she led fundraising efforts across the seven parish region to ensure that schools in traditionally under-served communities had the teacher and leadership talent necessary to lead students to excellent academic outcomes.

Brittney earned both her undergraduate and graduate degrees from Southern University at New Orleans, and she credits her passion for lifelong learning and development to her mother who is an educator and entrepreneur.
