Tweed Slime, Part Umpteenth

Recently we posted a story about former principal - and current high level DOE appointee Elif Gure-Perez who went after AP Christina Villavivencio for not giving poor ratings to African-American teachers --- The Slime Still Oozes at Tweed....
Villavivencio went through trials and tribulations in 2 schools before landing on her feet at principal of PS 197 out here in Far Rockaway. I gave her credit for doing so. 

And then these comments started surfacing. 

If true, can slime grow on slime? And someone asks where is the union? They must mean the Queens and District 27 UFT, one of the more "collaborative" union units - they never met a principal they didn't want to defend. 

And by the way, bully principals don't exist due to the DOE alone but are enabled by the UFT.

What's amazing is that Villavicencio, the "victim" in this case is 10x worse than Gure-Perez. She is running 197 into the ground, taking it from an A school to an F. In her short term as principal of that school she has run out 30-40 highly rated teachers who had been at that school for many years, 99% conveniently white! One veteran teacher even died after being hospitalized and coming back to work to being severely harassed by this woman, causing her so much distress that she died of a heart attack. The real person who needs to be investigated is Villavicencio. The former chapter leader, is her "right hand man" who buries teachers' along with the principal, in exchange for her hiring his sister in law, as well as non-existent schedule and a job as the AP, which has since been rescinded, with no knowledge of why. The list of her wrong doings goes on and on! Falsifying records, changing IEPs, calling 311 on her own teachers, bribing parents with food, etc.... She has been reported numerous times to the union and the superintendent. Nothing was ever done! Nepotism is also alive and well at this school. All new hires are friends of hers, the chapter leader, or people in the network that she's friends with! No interviews for any positions, such as cluster or coaching, IEP teachers, etc.. have ever been posted; they were just handed to these people.

All anyone has to do is investigate this fraud! Check how many times 311 was called on her. Ask her how many teachers left that school under her tyrant rule? Unfortunately I'm one of the "unlucky" ones; I'm still there! It is an awful place to work!

I heard about that chapter leader at 197, Herrera, I think his name is. He is some piece of work. He elected himself after being pushed out and then the newly elected chapter leader was illegally excessed so that the principal wouldn't have to deal with him. This left the door open for him to become chapter leader after nominating himself. He is known to have turned on his teachers, telling the principal everything they said to him privately and pushing her agenda, to rid experienced "white" teachers. This was done in exchange for hiring his sister in law, who was not even licensed and giving him a non-existent schedule (maybe 2-3 classes per week.) . She worked under a sub license, which in turn left the school with no subs. I heard that every time a teacher was out, the classes were split. Unreal! He gives the union a bad name. How does this go on when everyone knows about it, meaning the union and the superintendent.

  1. Just change the school number, the level, or the grade. Same things going on all over our wonderfully corrupt system, aided and abetted by our union "leadership" crew. I am watching a friend, who is a fine CL, being gradually destroyed by the UFT organization she worked so hard to build. There will be massive retirements this June, and some are already trickling out of the high schools this month. The principals are rubbing their hands together and chuckling over the windfall!

    1. Leadership not to be found at this school period one principal looks as if she was the principal that time forgot the other doesn't know how to speak properly I barely understand her when she talks to my grade. My principal needs to take a leadership seminar she is all over the place with her ideas and plans.

  2. How do bad things continue to happen when everyone knows about it? When there aren't enough people with the courage to make it stop. When good people do nothing, evil always prevails. Roseanne McCosh

  5. I don't believe Ms. V would be a victim. She learned how to verbally demean her staff and get away with it. The union rep would not file grievances against his friend Ms. V. The district rep Manley was never available at the union office and didn't return phone calls. Ms.V expected all teachers to stay after contracted hours and if they didn't she would target them. The real problems are overlooked. The lack of support for classroom teachers with disruptive students was disheartening and then the education of the other classmates was always being disrupted. Ms. V wouldn't write you up, she made the AP's do her dirty work. So, good AP's didn't stay long under these sort of demands. They tried to help the teachers but we're pushed to discipline many. Something must be done to stop Ms. V from harassing anymore teachers and she doesn't deserve pity.

  8. This principal has no understanding of how to run a school her are clueless as well. Her scores and her vision is not worth the paper they use to print with. Mrs. Barton needs to deny this principal her tenure if only for her record of not moving her students.
