Administrators in Need of Improvement (ANOI) –(UPDATED AS OF JAN 19, 2020)



Collaboration is key to a healthy and safe school community that fosters education for our 1.1 million students. Unfortunately, too many of our 1,800 schools communities have leaders that may not be the educational leaders that are greatly needed to foster this environment.

We asked the community to nominate not just principals, but any administrators that may be in need of improvement. This includes superintendents, assistant principals, Children’s First Support Network and cluster leaders.

Our hope is that by having this list out there positive change can occur to benefit the students, staff and entire school communities affected.

For nominations, please fill out this Administrator in Need of Improvement (ANOI) form


  • Does the school have incidents that go unreported?
  • Is there a lack of discipline and support?
  • Do routine requests for help or repairs get ignored?
  • Is there a high turnover of staff? Is staff targeted? 
  • Are parents targeted? 
  • Does the administrator violate the contract on such a regular basis?

In Addition to nominating an administrator, a parent or staff member can also use this form to send a complaint of moral character to the New York State Department of Education administrator-complaint-form-for-nysed

*Note: If an administrator feels they have been nominated in error, please email us at

  1. Another point I would like to make (and this is perhaps the strongest reason why I would so adamantly discourage people from working under the leadership of Ganesh is simply the length that this man is willing to go to in order to fulfill his agenda. It’s commonplace to hear stories about administrators going after staff who disagree with them, or argue with them, or question them, or file complaints, etc…but this man will without hesitation go after the people on his side who are actually loyal to him if he feels that he has to do that to get where he needs to be!!! I’ve witnessed it happen.

  3. I nominate A.P.Ellen Campeas of the H.S. of Health Careers & Sciences. Defensive and vindictive; targeted me. She was buddy-buddies with the last Principal, but ask the new Principal (Trejo) what he thinks of her.

  4. Are submissions to this list still being taken? I have a couple I’d consider adding.

  5. I have noticed you don’t monetize your blog, don’t waste your traffic,
    you can earn extra cash every month because you’ve got high quality content.
    If you want to know how to make extra bucks, search for: Mrdalekjd methods for

    • Amanda Lazerson of IS 162K is a horribly abusive principal. She illegally excessed a 20+ year veteran so that her friend from her temple who was a new teacher could have a job. She went after the UFT chapter leader with phony 3020a charges, and despite all the evidence that he was a superior teacher, the hearing officer terminated him. Now she’s targeting the new chapter leader. She illegally changed the school to a 16 period schedule, and despite the fact that the staff refused to SBO it, says she could do it anyway. She has targeted veteran teachers ever since her reign of terror began. The District 32 superintendent, Sheila Gorski, refuses to believe any of the complaints, and makes up excuses, like “Maybe they weren’t tech savvy.” Both Amanda Lazerson and Sheila Gorski must go.

  6. Can comments be turned on for the new additions? I have some information I’d like to add for some of these but didn’t see a comment box.

  7. Please please please send Koza that email.

  8. Can we nominate Assistant Principals? I have a doozy.

  9. I nominate Doris Lee, principal of Village Academy in Far Rockaway.

    This principal has been instated for 10 years at the school and has had a revolving door of teacher employment because of the terrible work conditions. All teachers are asked to smile and if they do not are reprimanded for it. If you disagree with any thing and make the mistake of voicing that opinion you are met with hostility and unjustified disciplinary action. She micromanages every single subject areas curriculum and grading but hasn’t actually provided a curriculum to begin with. If you are sick or have to be out of work on a Monday or a Friday she immediately accuses you of extending your weekend and threatens disciplinary action. She is so negative that not ONE substitute in two years has come to the school. She also claims that there is no money in the budget EVERY year. Even the current one where the school was invited to be apart of the Bronx Plan collaborative. She has teachers that have worked with her since the school opened who she doesn’t respect or consider effective. The UFT representative is in bed with the principal so teachers are unable to complain or go to him for actual protection or advice. The UFT rep is given privileges and leadership positions from the principal to continue pushing her agenda and not that of his colleagues and is used often for this principals agenda.

    • 100% agree. Zero support given to any teachers, especially new ones. classrooms micromanaged and no real curriculum support given. ZERO positive feedback. When asked what disciplinary procedures are for the start of the school year, there is no real answer given – because there are none!
      A first year teacher was discontinued – not because he was a bad teacher (he received an effective rating) but because his position was not available in the school any more and D.r Lee refused to do the extra paperwork to have him let go without any mark on his name, stating it was the only option for her to do.
      She is a horrific leader

  10. I nominate Andrea Story of PS 129 John H Finley. The woman is woefully incompetent and extremely unprofessionally. She uses the word “retarded” and harassed both teachers and students.

  11. I nominate Melitina Hernandez of PS129 Mahalia Jackson in Harlem ,
    For cruel and inhumane punishment to Veteran Teachers and teachers with disabilities.
