HAVE WE MET? I AM BRITTANY CUFAUDE, FOUNDER OF JOYFUL CLASSROOMS.
Who is behind Joyful Classrooms, you might ask?
I am. My name is Brittany Ann Cufaude and I am a teacher, coach, and author. My mission is an ambitious one: to bring joy and equity to all children through devotion to continuous learning and a compassionate, supportive community. I do that each day by supporting teachers and all humans connected to schools in any form.
During my 15 years as a teacher, I have been blessed to teach in and visit countless teaching environments. This includes teaching adult women and their children in women’s shelters as well as teaching high-school-aged moms in a nursery setting so they could nurse and care for their babies. I have taught children of all ages from TK through adult learning. I also teach in English and Spanish.
In recent years, and in some of my greatest acts of courage, I have spent years teaching other educators what is at the core of excellent and joyful teaching. This is precisely how Joyful Classroom was born. I created Joyful Classrooms from pure passion, hard work, and an utter love for teaching, learning, and generally making the world a better place one classroom at a time.
