Lori-Ann Clementson

As the Community School Director, I’m responsible for the day-to-day management of the community school strategy in collaboration with school leadership and community partners.
I have always been drawn to education by my need to address the opportunity disparity that exists for Black and Latinx students. Not only are opportunities scarce and limited, they’re often hoarded. My experiences in education include work in various settings across NYC including summer programs, charter networks, and as a consulting program evaluator for the DOE. These experiences have helped shaped my voice and the explicit decision to see myself not only as an educator but as a facilitator of dialogue necessary to create change.
