89 - Lynmara Colon: Leadership in Equity

LYNMARA COLON is a dynamic leader committed to student learning and growth. She is passionate about technology, access, and equity for all students, and was named in the NSBA 20 to Watch for Innovative Practices. As a former teacher, assistant principal, and principal, Lynmara is focused on building healthy cultures by leading with a Disney mentality where all stakeholders are welcomed. 

Lynn holds two master’s degrees: a degree in curriculum and instruction, and the other in educational leadership. She is currently pursuing her doctorate in education through Old Dominion University. She is also the co-author of the recently published Empower Our Girls: Opening the Door for Girls to Achieve More.

In our conversation, Lynn describes the importance of building rapport and relationship on school teams before introducing new policies and practices. She talks about the heart and message of Empower Our Girls, and also shares her passion for changing mindsets around English Language Learners in our schools. You’ll also hear about Lynn’s professional goals, productivity habits, personal interests, and the voices that inspire her practice today. Lynmara brings full value in this conversation - I loved it!
