Super Teacher

In the last year, over twenty teachers have left because of the exasperation and unhealthy environment that Ms. Mule has created. She has created an environment of intimidation and fear, where teachers are constantly looking to get caught. She rarely offers support to teachers but puts in dozens of letters in files for minor things, berates teachers in front of students, speaks about teachers behind their back – including confidential information, fires non tenured teachers, fires tenured teachers, pursues numerous OSI investigations, brings in a lot of hardships to anyone who pursues the UFT to help in a situation or report things that are not happening. Asks teachers specifically to not call 311. Insults teachers for not being able to fill out the end of year surveys properly because we cannot read. She says if we just fill out the survey better, we would get better students. Demeans students, faculty, staff. Impossible to work in this enviornment. Warn everyone. We have put together a formal letter of no confidence that we are happy to share.

Also, is the principal supposed to put her job on the line and not report misconduct, verbal abuse, corporal punishment etc. She’s there to provide a safe learning environment for students not to protect staff who are engaging in wrongdoing

Cobble Hill has certainly turned around, but for the better. Students are in internships, STEM instruction is cutting edge and overall incidents are down. The number of students who want to come to Cobble is growing and we have added teaching positions this year.

It’s a nice place to work in and teach!

Anna Maria Mule has an ugly soul. She is the most pitiful human being. She does not care about her students or her teachers, she just cares about what she looks like on paper – even if the numbers are a lie. She picks a select handful of teachers to torture each year arbitrarily. She goes after licenses and nobody is safe in the building. Everyone treads on eggshells and pretends to like her but she brings a negative energy to what used to be a wonderful school. She is the worst boss you would ever have. Educator or Leader are not even words that befit such a detestable being.

Back when Cobble was Great...

Cobble Hill used to be such an amazing school filled with the best teachers, lots of spirit, warmth and personality. It was truly a special place. Anna Maria Mule has destroyed everything good about Cobble Hill. Everybody is scared of suffering her wrath and abusive tirades. She holds grudges – so once she is upset with you good luck, get out or get fired. She has fired a number of teachers in the past years. If something is unfortunately difficult in your personal life, she will use it against you. This school has no chance of getting back to its glory days if the DOE keeps her in charge. She is the most awful principal – but an equally awful human being.

What can I say about the Mule?

What a filthy disgusting human. She has allowed her 7-year old to lead team meetings, thinks its funny when students don’t comply with school rules (and she can’t get them to either), blames everyone but herself for shortcomings of the school she is supposed to be leading, she gives orders but never handles business herself. She has been witnessed to be unsanitary when she reaches her hands into her pants and itches herself and then touches door knobs, walkie-talkies, etc without washing her hands. She is never prepared for the classes she teaches, walks in without lesson plans, sits around and has had students learn absolutely nothing in three years yet demands perfection from her staff.

To all the new staff at Cobble Hill — watch out. The devil cannot hide for long. She’ll be out and vicious in no time. Don’t be surprised when the villain is back. The Mule is the worst principal and damages the careers of our best teachers and the educational lives of our children.

The single most unqualified, incompetent, unpleasant individual I have ever had the displeasure to work for. What everyone here is saying is very true, and then some. She is genuinely awful. The best description and/or explanation I csn come up with is that she was unpopular in high school and is now using her position to get back at “the cool kids” (I.e., the teachers) and settle the score. A terrible administrator and terrible person. She is capricious and arbitrary, mendacious and calculating, cruel and vindictive. She makes the Grinch look kind, empathetic, and pleasant. She is a profound anti-intellectual who honestly seems to hate both teachers and teenagers. She is a “Dolores Umbridge” type through and through.

The principal at Cobble Hill High School seems like she spends her days playing the game of principal in a way to get revenge on her own high school experience. Working for her is like living in a tense little bubble hoping she will not arbitrarily choose to ruin your life by bullying you or vilifying you or undermining your teaching, communication, collaboration skills at any moment. This school has a high turnover rate for educators for a reason. Nearly 3/4 of the staff left last summer. She chastises teachers for everything and anything in front of students. She aims to find everyones weak point and exploit it instead of mentoring and helping her teachers. She doesn’t care about the students but about the numbers and how she looks to others. That’s why everytime a review happens, she cleans up the school and hangs motivational posters, and suspends at least 1/4 of the student body. Her leadership is a lie. The Mule we know is rarely dressed presentably, often in pigtails walking into school nearly an hour (or more) after the first bell has rung and never staying to support students in after-school roles. She is often chugging Diet Pepsi… Read more »

Now the loser Principal get booed at a talent show last week. The students truly despise her. So what does the loser Principal Mule do, she writes a letter to the entire school community complaining about the behavior at the talent show. Teachers are disrespected all the time but when we complain she asked to see our lesson plans.

Muke has this Italian class. She told students to write a letter and they would be able to drop the class. Of course it was a mass exodus. Can teachers do that?

How is she still Principal. I think her sugar daddy came to observe our school last week. A deputy chancellor at that.
So many great staff members have left Cobble because of her.

Mule also wrote an apology letter to herself. Muke had Ms Frye go around and get students to sign apologizing for booing her at the talent show. Sounds very Trumpian.

Mule also announced that the reason all the teachers left is because the students are so disrespectful. Muke is a delusional liar too.

Mule, you are going to get booed at graduation by students, parents and staff. Bank on it

Terrible terrible principle. Been waiting to graduate since freshman year. She really suspended a student for not saying hello to her, cried when the student were more than honest about all the things she has done wrong as an educator. Only thing she did right was not show up to graduation. Idk how cobble can have a principle that thinks she’s losing weight by drinking only diet soda.

Why is she still a Principal? Mule is probably supplying Diet Pepsi to the administrators at Tweed. She is a beast. Mule is a vengeful pit bull with no morals. Her assistant principals suck on her toes everyday. The APs follow and justify every stupid thing she does. Mule needs a permanent vacation from Cobble. Two months of summer off is not enough.
Mule is a miserable human being with no friends and two assistant principals and a couple of teachers that suck her toes and sniff her stinking butt. Just look at her. Mule is fat and gross with an ugly personality. Mule needs to leave Cobble. Hopefully for the staff and students there, she will leave.

Wow I wish I had seen this before I started at cobble .

There are some older teachers who are against her for legitimate reasons, and she attacks them . But what’s worse is that she attacks new teachers, who have never done anything to get on her bad side . I did everything she asked , never said a bad word about her to anyone at work, and I showed her that I was listening to whatever input she gave me. She was horrible to me in return . Constantly looking to catch me doing something wrong , constantly criticizing , had completely unrealistic expectations etc. the teachers are terrified . I left after a few years because my mental Health had been damaged by her and I was scared I would have a breakdown. I would include more details but I’m still scared of her and I’m worried she will read this and find a way to hurt me professionally. I don’t know why she is this way, she just… Read more »

Anna Maria Mule is a racist, unprofessional, unqualified principal. She has said things like, “I don’t benefit from white privilege because my ancestors didn’t immigrate her early enough to benefit from the free labor of slavery” and when a mother came into the school afraid her son was getting caught up between two gangs Mule replied, “What do I know about gangs? I have pumpkins in my backyard in Queens!” She had very little time both in the classroom and in the DoE writ large when she was placed in at Cobble to “save” it during yet another unsuccessful reform effort called transformation. She certainly transformed the school as all the good teachers left. I’m sure they will be more (I don’t think there’s a finite number of good teachers), and I hope that she does not ruin their careers like she did for many of my colleagues. Thankfully I got out before any permanent damage was done to my professional reputation. But, out of all the people I have ever worked for, she is–hands down–the worst human being I have ever met both in and out of the workplace.

Now this comment is just silly and untrue. The principal takes all incidents seriously and works with the AP and Dean to address them. The students also seem much happier now that teacher expectations and treatment of them is fair and consistent. Now teachers do not bribe their students with donuts in order to make them like them or not let them into their classes as punishment, all in violation of school rules and procedures. It is just a much better atmosphere overall. It’s true – the school has been transformed – in good ways!

Wait I’m confused. Didn’t most of teachers leave because they were on the brink of being fired? There are only so many days one can come in late, not teach, give students busywork, stand in the hallway while class is in session, come in with no lesson plan, have an out of control classroom, while the same students are well behaved in another classroom with a different teacher etc.

I love clearing up confusion. Shapiro-Batnick, Lockridge, Panagoulias, Moccia, Dickinson, Thomas, Jarara, Hodges, Strom, Warren,Linden, Metzler, Rowe, Yamali, King, Lovejoy, Harper Stallings, Baker Rodriguez, Blaise, Derys, Ali, Janvier, etc, etc, etc. Obviously you were not a member of Cobble Hill staff when the teachers left. So all of the above teachers were on the verge of getting fired? Who told you that story? These are excellent professionals who care deeply about their students. With exception of retirees, all are thriving at their new schools. There are more teachers but I can’t remember. Before you disparaged former colleagues, get your story straight. There are other sources other than the principal.

But according to your post, it shouldnt be okay to badger teachers to pass students and give makeup work for an entire semester. Why did this take place in June? This was part of the 90% graduation rate edit. We need new leadership. I won’t leave because I care about the students. We have wonderful students.

I think it’s pretty obvious who this is. Let it go. Show good character. Gain maturity. Be less selfish and conniving. Embrace the positive. You should be ashamed of the comments you have written on this page. You can show that you have become a better person by not continuing to post such vile commentary. What would your new administrators think if they saw the hate, the poor language, and the animosity, as well as the spread of malicious gossip and rumors on this page? Do you feel comfortable facing students every day after engaging in this kind of behavior? Do you tell them to act as you say not as you do? You can make things right by removing your comments. If you need closure, email or call the principal and get things off your chest. I am sure she would listen or even meet with you. Hold yourself accountable and learn to take responsibility for your mistakes rather than continuing to heap blame on the administration.

It’s an anonymous blog. I am a highly effective teacher I might add. I don’t agree with the personal insults. Mrs Mule is nice to me but I have seen her work and it is a horror story. She is obsessed with certain staff members which I feel border on mental illness. She talks bad about staff to other staff to cause division. This is Mule. I only hope she doesn’t turn on you.

Maybe Rocco should be nominated as administrator in need of improvement, since he lacks experience in leading and supervising departments, especially the math and science department. The only thing he knows how to do best is regurgitate whatever Ms. Mule says. Doesn’t have an original thought or idea in his head. Not an innovative administrator that will help and support staff and students excell both in and out the classroom. Never have I worked with such a lazy AP. His way of handling students who are not engaged in his class is to kick them out. If a teacher did such a thing, there would be a disciplinary hearing. His “leadership” was quite the show this school year.

To my fellow UFT Members, My plea is to all of the hardworking professionals at Cobble Hill. Take control of your career. There are many places to work that do not require accepting mental cruelty. Teaching is a difficult profession. It cannot be satisfying to work for this administration lead by Mrs. Mule. Mrs. Mule wants desperately to be liked and admired. Mule is needy and emotionally immature. Not a good combo. Her trip with the 9th grade students to Virginia failed. Students disrespected her multiple times. Everything she has done this year or is currently doing is geared towards her getting a rousing reception at graduation. The school is in turmoil. The first floor is a abomination most of the time. The only constant in the school are trips, terrible student attendance, and badgering teachers to pass students. Get ready for the end of the year senior grade-a-thon. Our school needs a leader that can distinguish between kindness and discipline. I need a competent AP of math and science that can help me in the classroom.

Mrs. Mule, you know that your character is vindictive and conniving. When staff members have come to speak openly and truthfully about the how things can be improved at Cobble, or about injustices that are taking place, you rear your ugly head and decide to get even and become vengeful. If you had a clear conscious you would not be lurking on this site and interogate staff members about this site. Why do you think many feel this way. Please take a look at your actions. The entire Cobble staff and community knows that you have no character, integrity, or self respect about the professionalism of teaching or about caring for the needs of the students. You bully and degrade staff, students and parents, when you do not get your way. You can come back in September and gloat about the 90% graduation, but at whose expense?

Perhaps it is you who should seek professional help to address your delusional views and grandiose narcissist personality. Please answer this: Why was there a student doing work on the day of graduation and then demanded his cap and gown so that he could walk down the aisle.
The message that is being sent to the students is you do not need to work hard to be successful. Just do the bare minimum and that will be ok to get by. How does this mentality help students after high school? Our students deserve better and need a leader who can uphold standards of ethics and morals. Clearly that is lacking in the administration.

Don’t even know what to say. My daughter goes to Cobble and she went on a trip to Virginia. The principal went too. I found out that they allowed boys to visit girls hotel room with doors closed. That should not be done. I am furious and have called 311. My daughter told me stories about what happened on bus and in hotel. I cannot believe it with the principal on the trip. The principal was bullying a student in the bus and he was in tears. He was asking her to leave him alone as he sat next to another teacher. They need to ask the kids in the bus how they feel. My daughter said the boy was wrong but the principal has no feelings and wouldn’t stop bothering him. I will not let my daughter go on another trip with the principal.

I remember a staff meeting where the Mule told us we must not know how to read because if we did we wouldn’t have given her such a poor rating on the DOE survey. She said if we didn’t write good things we wouldn’t get good kids. We had awesome kids. She just doesn’t have the ability to love kids or education or want to actually make a change. Just put up tons of motivational quotes before the superintendent walks in and suspend half the students t body and force kids to graduate who don’t yet have the skills for success so she can get an “A” and collect her paycheck.

A bully never likes to be punched back. A bully uses the weak minded and quite frankly the not so intelligent to carry out their dirty work. While Mule is on her many AVID trips, the weak minded are manning the ship…..AP Rodriguez and AP Gentile. They are aiming for praise from the bully when she returns. Hold on to your values and standards. You are under attack. The bully will explode if there is not a graduation rate of 90%. Teachers have to pass students even if they cannot recognize them. Not to mention class work, homework and class exams. What are those for? says AP Gentile. June 26th is near.

Disciplinarian, educator, role model, leader, moral is to Mule as fire is to water.

If you’ve ever read Dante’s Inferno, you’ll recognize the three beasts on the mountain right away when you meet her and her minions. They work together to put pressure on the teachers and staff to police the school and pass undeserving students. Their favorites are the students that regularly disrupt classes, disrespect teachers, and cut class. She targets both students and teachers alike, creating made up vendettas and stalks people so that she can suspend students or have disciplinary meetings with teachers. She seems to dislike hardworking students that don’t suck up to her or play her “like me, please like me” game. She once came after a student because she thought the student didn’t say “hi” to her in the morning. Working here is like working under a dysfunctional fascist regime. All hail the Mule, or else she’ll come after your license. STAY AWAY if you love yourself.

Enough of these students doing makeup work just to say we have a 100% graduation rate according to administration. It’s so fake and ridiculous making up a semesters work in a couple of days. I sat there and listened to the administration boast about the graduation rate. Beyond sad and cheesy. It’s embarrassing. Education is failing by the day.

I’m on your side Anna. What’s so wrong with falsifying transcripts and graduation rates? You only want a great school for your minions to work in and to help those poor minority kids. (So what if they don’t have a backyard with pumpkins, right?). Maybe they can get jobs as bus drivers after they graduate from Cobble? Don’t you have the connect?

The end of this year was unique. A parade of teachers going to Mule’s office to be badgered about grades of seniors. AP Gentile and AP Rodriguez participated in this craziness. OSI should investigate. One student came in before the graduation ceremony to hand in makeup work and wanted his cap and gown during graduation ceremony. Unbelievable. The administration terrorized the counselor. Yes they are educational terrorists. Smh

I have contacted OSI several times, and they have assured me that an investigation has begun. Mrs. Mule – we will no longer tolerate you destroying the lives of students and educators. The system that was protecting your incompetence is now coming after you.

Honestly, faking graduation rates should be considered similar to defrauding investors. In this case, the Mule has manipulated the DOE and parents who think they are sending their children to a functional school with competent leadership.

OSI is also aware that teachers were coached and forced to lie during the school’s quality review. Everything that the DOE knows about the school is based on a false impression. When they dig deeper, they will see the real Cobble Hill.

Sorry Annamaria, but your house of cards is about to crumble.

Ms. Mule is not a leader. Not a principal. Simply a bully who was bullied during her primary and secondary school years and felt short in impressing her family members/siblings. Ms. Mule takes pride in what she does. Although she is late almost every day to school, she goes to all extent to look good on paper. As students are being set to fail, she fabricates data to make the school look good and bullies everyone to be on board for “the common good”. There is no accountability as long the objective towards “the common good” is met. Ms. Mule has had guidance counselors and teachers alike rehearse on talking points, fake data, and meetings that never happened to impress people during QRs. Ms. Mule has verbally abused students and made insensitive remarks about staff members. The school feels nothing like a school. Everyone is taking sides and some are reporting to her as spies for better ratings. Morale is extremely low. Teachers are going on meds and some are taking long medical leaves because they can’t handle the constant harassment. If the DOE doesn’t look into this, there will soon be a lawsuit against her in order for us… Read more »

One by one, the guidance counselors have left us. Hopefully, we will get more competent counselors. Those were a whiny bunch, always complaining. Good riddance. Maybe will will get a kid or two in an Ivy League school. Our kids will stay in class more and not hang out in the “guidance office” or “with AP Rodriguez”. When is that winner leaving? What does she do? Oh that right, she is the “supervisor of guidance”… now she has two counselors, Meyerson and Mule. The last one is a winner.

OH SHUT UP. This statement is untrue and your idiotic ass knows it. ALL of the counselors (Batnick, Warren, Davy, Janvier, Panagoulias) who left worked tirelessly to ensure the welfare of their students. The department is harassed and bashed daily. The new ones who left will enjoy their new school. Now that there are two counselors left, one of which is Mule, can we predict this years graduation rate 95%?

I highly disagree with scapegoating of the guidance counselors. I worked closely with each guidance counselor when I taught their cohorts. They each were dilengent in ensuring their students were successful and provided support to myself and colleagues when dealing with students in need of crisis management. Unfortunately, there was a lack of support from administration, especially AP Rodriguez who is AP Guidance and Security. AP Rodriguez is more engrossed in her cellphone, rather than listening to the concerns of staff members when dealing with issues of discipline. Discipline? What’s that? Ms. Mule and Ms. Rodriguez undermine protocols then have students be upset at them for enforcing rules. It’s a please like me mentality. I guess it must be tough having low self esteem. I am looking forward working with guidance counselors this coming school year, unless Ms. Mule decides that she can undertake the role of guidance. Since in her mind she can do it all. As the saying goes – Jack of all trades, master of none.!

I am feeling it’s untrue. Some of my colleagues would have called me. Or, maybe, they are too busy taking their job seriously (engaging in best practices) instead of simply covering their behind or visiting this cite to voice their concerns.

Too late to text anyone right now.

No doubt, she doesn’t deserve to be a principal at any school. She is not an effective leader and she is depriving the students’ of everything the system ought to offer and hurting the emotional wellbeing of everyone in the building.
Even if I can’t come back, I would be happy that the students will have an opportunity to now have a real leader in the building; someone who cares about the learning in the building, who’s capable to boost morale, and lead.

Can anyone confirm?

The principal is a liar, an evil person, with no moral compass and most importantly one who is not benefitting the students within their learning capacity; not good for the school, or in supporting the staff to grow professionally. She doesn’t deserve the title and is very ineffective at even pretending to be a leader. She is (at best) an effective bully.

It’s sad how Ms. Mule has now delegated people (and at times, herself) to say stupid things on this forum to trivialize the voices and concerns for her staff members. She is constantly checking this forum and asking us to give names. She is constantly recruiting gestapos.
How unprofessional. Everyone is afraid. Any little constructive comments about what’s not working or can improve can render us ineffective as a teacher in an observation (all punitive).
Ms. Mule should start building a respectful community where students can thrive in a welcoming environment and staff members can feel fulfilled and respected by her and that she is committed to their success in the building.
Ms. Mule is not only a bully, she is unprofessional, condescending, and a liar with no firm handle on how to manage a school effectively.
Everyone in the building is overwhelmed, without any support as leadership is lacking, morale sinking, and now, she’s pushing her gestapos to change the conversation on this forum to intimidate people despite our concerns.
