Let’s say you’ve been a teacher in the Normandy school district for a while and are wondering what’s going to happen to your job when the new state-run Normandy Schools Collaborative takes over on July 1.
If you’re still interested in teaching in the district, here is what Superintendent Ty McNichols had to say in a letter sent out to staff member last week:
Brittany Packnett is an alumna of Teach for America and, four months ago, started a new job as executive director of Teach For America – St. Louis.
Packnett was born and raised in St. Louis and returned to the city after spending five years in Washington D.C. Beginning in 2007, her commitment to Teach for America brought her to Martin Luther King Elementary in Southeast D.C. She later went to work for Congressman Lacy Clay and as director for TFA’s Government Affairs team.
"The reason why I came home is because this is my city - it's deeply personal," Packnett said.
