  1. Does not respond to consultation committee. All special education teachers quit by Dec and she never replaced them. IEPs are not respected. Only two teachers were not new in Sept. Hides from her staff and makes her secretary do her dirty work.

  2. Lies in observation reports. Writes teachers up for ridiculous reasons such as taking a day for bereavement. Constantly needs to hire new teachers every year because of the toxic environment she’s created in the school building.

  3. Teacher with Nightmares

    Yes! Nightmares is what most of her staff experience. She has ran through several teachers throughout the years. Each year it gets worst. Even her veteran teachers that you would think would stick it out decided to retire or leave. Has had several first year teachers and instead of providing support and guidance she made them rethink their entire career. Gives all her staff poor evaluations so that she could justify everything going on in the school. Parents aren’t allowed in the building unless they are the very few that she likes and/or are part of the PTA. Teachers have gotten written up for talking to parents. Has written up teachers for stupidity like accidentally opening the emergency exit door which teachers usually use to exit the building for the day and dismiss students. Her AP is somewhat decent but is used to do her dirty work. The instructional coach will throw you under the bus and twist what ever you say you to her to make admin hate you even more she’s here spy. Don’t trust that bitch! The list goes on and on like I stated before just nightmares after nightmares. They will literally have you questioning your sanity.

  4. I totally agree with all the comments. She creates the most disrespectful, toxic and punitive environment. She disrespects literacy coaches, teachers, parents and students. She does not belong in a school environment.

  5. She is unfair and straight up rude to teachers and students. The culture in the building is toxic and designed to make teachers fail. Little support is provided so teachers can be blamed for the failures in the school. There has been an almost completely new staff for the last few years; new teachers have quit by December because of what goes on in this school building. In a k-3 school you would expect to hear laughter and joy and see different types of projects around the halls; not here. It was SILENT and bland.
