Morgyn-Britney Hall has always felt compelled to help improve children’s lives.
Her path to service started in high school as a reading buddy for first and second graders who were below grade-level reading. While attending Smith College, she was a teacher’s aide at Smith College’s Center for Early Childhood Education helping our nation’s future leaders engage in their learning. And for more than 100 Spanish pre-kindergarten and primary school students in the city of Ponte Caldelas in Galicia, Spain, she made learning and speaking English enjoyable and exciting as a North American language and culture assistant for the Xunta de Galicia.
As an operations associate for The Broad Center, she uses her problem-solving skills to discover solutions and increase efficiencies to ultimately help the leaders who serve our students. Prior to joining The Broad Center, Morgyn-Britney was a marketing assistant at the University of California, Los Angeles, where she helped improve department operations and messaging to better connect with prospective, current, and former students. She also supported the development efforts of two Los Angeles-based nonprofits that work to expand opportunity for children.
In her spare time, Morgyn-Britney enjoys curling up with a good book, challenging family and friends to a friendly board game and cooking up a tasty meal.
What advice would you give your younger self?
The advice I would give to my younger self is, it’s okay to not have all the answers, and it’s okay to make mistakes. Try your best every day and let that be enough.
Why do you work at TBC, specifically?
I work at TBC because I want to be a part of ensuring that the nation’s public schools get better. If one student, one school, one district is able to achieve better results because of something that I did, that will mean so much to me.
