Hi! I’m Dr. Brittany Hewett, a writer and instructional coach for Impact Early Education.
I’m here because I love professional development, and Impact is delivering professional development coming from people who have “been in the trenches” and really know what early childhood education is all about!
Many of my qualifications for this role come from a variety of opportunities and experiences in both the classroom and the community. I have intricate knowledge of the Early Childhood Education (ECE) field because I’ve served…
- in early care classrooms as a teacher
- in administration as an assistant director
- as a lecturer in courses for pre-service teachers
- as a researcher examining and evaluating teacher education and ECE contexts
most recently, as an early childhood specialist with Bringing Out the Best program under UNC Greensboro’s Center for Youth, Family, and Community Partnerships
I have a Doctorate in Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) from UNC Greensboro, with a concentration in early care and education. I also have a Master of Science degree from the Child Development and Family Relations (CDFR) program at East Carolina University (ECU) and a Bachelor of Science in elementary education (also from East Carolina) with an NC licensure in grades K-6!
I’ve been recognized by the National Council on Family Relations as a Certified Family Life Educator (CFLE), which acknowledges my competence in ten content areas, including families and individuals in societal contexts; human growth and development across the lifespan; and professional ethics and practice.
Some Fun Facts
I genuinely LOVE professional development — there’s always something new to learn or a different perspective to take and expand your brain.
I love to dance and will break out in random song lyrics at any given moment!
