Our Story

Brandy West is the Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer of Learners are Leaders, Inc (LL-inc). After years of educating students in the classroom, she decided to expand her educational philosophy of Quality Education + Exposure = Endless Opportunities, outside of the walls of the classroom. As an educator and administrator, she found that oftentimes the school’s curriculum and pacing didn’t allow time for supplemental lessons beyond core academics that are also pertinent to the success of youth as they transition to the “real” world. LL-inc is that bridge between the classroom and the real world. LL-inc is a movement for educational, moral, social and cultural betterment.

Brandy has over 15 years of experience in education serving as a Teacher, Magnet Coordinator and Administrator in the PK-12 sector and currently serves in the role of Clinical Assistant Professor at Sam Houston State University. She has a Bachelor's degree in Mass Communications/Business Administration, a Master's degree in Curriculum and Instruction, and a Doctorate degree in Education Policy and Leadership from Southern Methodist University.
