Finalist in Education

About Five Foot One Teacher

A survivor of the Parkland, Florida school shooting, Brittany Sinitch is fostering hope and change through social media. After her world was turned upside down in February 2018, the educator’s classroom that was once her “favorite place in the world” became a crime scene she never wanted to revisit. She set upon a path to inspire through uplifting teacher vlogs, to sobering “Reality of Losing my Classroom” YouTube video #MarchForOurLives and #LoveIsLove Instagram advocacy. Now with nearly 200K subscribers, Brittany’s “small human with big dreams” efforts are reawakening her classroom to cultivate new dreams. Her vlogs are now a haven for positivity and joy.
