SHIVANA WEATHERS is the proud Momma of a rising 12th grader and 9th grader at Brooklyn Collaborative. Shivana has served on our SLT for the past 3 years. She is a former retail professional buyer who left the industry to focus on spending more time with her family. Shivana made a promise to get more involved and she intends to. As the mother of two children of color, Shivana stressed her need to make sure that THEY are represented. As the Co-President of the PTA, Shivana committed to representation and supporting our children and school administration to ensure that they have all that they need to get the most out of their BCS experience!
KAREN BAGNINI and her spouse-partner, Barry, have a rising 11th grader at BCS. Karen describes herself as a white-identified, cis-gender female, creative arts therapist and clinical social worker who has practiced in the Boston + New York City public school systems and out-patient mental health clinics for 23 years. She loves to cook, grow plants/herbs/veggies, learn new things, make art/music, watch movies, and lovingly and thoughtfully question all elements of the status quo while centering the belief that we need to decolonize how we measure success (apparently, she also tends to write very long sentences).
VENUS DENNISON has a a child at BCS who is a rising senior and another child who graduated from BCS. Venus is an award-winning and versatile senior creative leader with a master’s degree in Design Management from Pratt Institute and a bachelor’s degree in graphic design from Syracuse University. She is a proud track mom!
