Director of Elementary Content
Shanelle County is Director of Educational Content for the Brilla Schools Network. Her educational background is in Public Health with an undergraduate degree from Boston University and a graduate degree in Public Health from Hunter College. Shanelle spent six years with UNICEF managing key components of large initiatives, aimed at reducing health disparities and improving educational outcomes in underserved and marginalized populations, specifically in adolescents and children. When asked why she chose education over public health, she responds that education is public health, for educating hundreds of children on a daily basis to ensure that they have the knowledge to make great life decisions will result in a healthier population in the long run. She takes pride in working with beautiful and intelligent children who are a daily reminder of her younger self. Shanelle has been working in education for the last five years serving in roles as a classroom teacher, assistant principal, and instructional coach. She hopes that in this new role she can impact teachers and leaders through high-quality, comprehensive, informative, and beautiful work.
