Brittany Kelleher graduated magna cum laude from Princeton University with an honors thesis on Black identity. She began her career teaching in St. Louis, served as an Education Pioneers Fellow, and has spent the last several years working for a leading national nonprofit consulting firm. There, she supported some of the country’s best schools in strategy, finance, and operations. Brittany joined Kairos because she believes self-directed learning is the best way to prepare students for success in college and beyond.
At Kairos, we believe now is the opportune moment to rethink public education. That's why we replace lectures with engaging projects and dictatorial "behavior managers" with 1-1 executive functioning coaches who help students learn how to manage their own schedule and work habits. Kairos students practice navigating real-world choices (such as when, where, how, and with whom to work) within a safe, supportive school environment. Kairos develops students not just into freethinkers, ready to thrive in a modern economy, but self-governing citizens, ready to lead both themselves and their communities.
