Our Principal, Lydia Colón Bomani. At Brooklyn Generation School, Ms. Colón Bomani will be applying over 20 years of experience as a middle- and high-school educator in Brooklyn where she has worked in communities of color to close the achievement gap. She has a demonstrated ability to foster teacher leadership, places a high value on the importance on innovative problem solving, and on improving instruction through the use of data. As a teacher-leader, she helped develop an alternative program in Bushwick, and remained as the lead teacher and data specialist when the program became an official school. Later, she became the assistant principal of a successful transfer school that partnered with CBOs to provide social, wellness and wrap around services.
