George C. Albano has
served as a public school educator for over 35 years. He earned a Masters
of Arts degree in History, Political Science and Education from Adelphi
University. He also received over 60 postgraduate credits in Administration,
Curriculum and Supervision from Fordham University,
and New York University.
Mr. Albano was
appointed Principal of the Lincoln Elementary School in Mount Vernon, New
York, 27 years ago. Under his leadership, Lincoln successfully
desegregated and is currently considered one of the top performing schools
in the country. The success of his school is directly attributed to
his commitment to educating the “whole child” academically, socially,
culturally and morally. He has worked throughout his career to instill
this commitment in his staff and to share his firm belief that race, gender
and economic background cannot impede a child’s potential to learn.
Mr. Albano’s work
has led Lincoln School to be recognized in the national media as a school
where no child is left behind.
