Administrators in Need of Improvement (ANOI)



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

I’m grateful for the opportunity that I’ve been given to tell my story.

Lori Evanko

First I want to say how grateful I am for all of the people who stand up for what is right even though it may mean professional ruin for them. You all make me very proud to be an educator. I too have a story to tell, but I would just like to begin by saying that my teachers, assistant principals and staff at JHS 125 Henry Hudson were amazing, dedicated, professional people who worked 7 days a week for the sake of the school community and students. I am so proud to have been able to serve them and sad that I was taken away from them. I am an administrator who has been wrongfully terminated.

Thank you for providing such a valuable service to all of us, teachers, parents, New Yorkers, and others!Thank you for exposing the corruption and the corrupted. Thank you for educating the public. I look forward to more of your posts.

I always spent my half an hour to read this website’s
articles all the time along with a mug of coffee.


Iris Blige, Fordham Arts. Most hostile environment I’ve ever worked in. Has several teachers spying on the staff.
Put the Chapter leader in a closet (seriously).


Niefi Juan Acosta threatened to blow up the staff and placed war themed and religious bible verse posters outside of teachers rooms if they help in the investigation refuses to pay for covers of classes during prep saying they are In lieu of your prep for 5 years U-rates females base on “appearance” and gives letter to file base on how they are dressed made new hires to change their vote on extended time – gives parking spots to anyone of teachers who helps defend him in investigations like various allegations of sexual misconduct by staff and allegations of racial discrimination by parents under investigation by OEO, OSI and probably others…

Please add Holger Carrillo to this list ASAP!. Principal of EBT at Grand Street Campus.,He is unprofessional, racist,and a pig.

Francisco- You continue to do the important work, ingeniously. Even after all you’ve been through, my hat is off to you!
Please add Kathleen Elvin, Principal of John Dewey High School, Brooklyn. There are 12 teachers (I am one of them) who are in the midst of a lengthy appeals process due to her harrassment. I am since retired, largely due to her non-stop campaign to destroy my career. She has “3020a’d” many of us, and came in to the school on a “mission” to harrass/destroy/ruin rank and file educators- and even her own adminsitrators!- if they did not fall into line, which meant lick her jackboots! A true monster, whose karma is very, very bad!!!


Good article. I certainly love this site.
Stick with it!


P.S. 329 is desperately in need of supervision, scrutiny, and reorganization, especially on the administrative level. It is a school totally out of control, due to poor leadership by Salema Marbury and Lisa Lafontant. There are several behavioral problems and dangerous situations. Ms. Marbury has been written about negatively by the media many times, yet seems to evade any consequences for her actions.


Please Add the Following Principals To the List.
Donna Geller, PS 70 Queens. She makes teachers go down 10 minutes early to pick up the kids and waits until 3:00 to have children pack up. Sometimes kids go up to 3:30 to be dismissed and parents are outraged. Also Nancy Berson from PS 148Q in East Elmhurst who disrespects teachers making several faculty conferences a sham. If a teacher speaks up and adds her insights, she interrupts them rudely and ridicules them. Also add Carmen Parache from PS 150,Q in Sunnyside Queens and Rafael Campos from PS 112,Q in Long Island City.


Add June Barnett of IS 218 in district 6. A corrupt, rude and unprofessional principal. If you dare to express an opinion in a meeting that is different than hers or you fail to kiss her behind, you are done! She destroyed many educators’lives for reasons that are purely personal and she is still a Principal although there are many allegations against her
. Uses teachers to spy on other teachers and to write statements against them just as she uses students in the same manner.


Casper Cacioppo from PS 89,Q. He mentored Sara Tucci from P.S.7 in Elmhurst. Nuff said!!!


Hi! I’ve been following your site for a while
now and finally got the bravery to go ahead and give you a shout out
from Dallas Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep
up the great job!

A few observations and suggestions. The ATR Supervisor’s list did not have names that I expected to see there. Could it be that once some of them are disgusted by their marching orders on how to harass and destroy ATRs they decide to desert that sinking ship? If the name, Principal Liza Caraballo (now Suarez) doesn’t appear on the list, it gives me pause to wonder: are there so many that even obvious candidates are not counted (for it is a widespread sentiment at PS 120K, D. 14, that she is a witch that is thoroughly despised by all except her sycophants)? I have called for ATRs and all reassigned staff to be represented at the UFT with a Chapter status since 2006. Members of the Union should make that happen, even if they are not ATRs! (The same should be done about members’ confidence in the UFT and NYSUT!) I have also called for a report card to be prepared for all administrators by all staff, both openly and anonymously and issued to them the last week of June. I once prepared a two page Report Card for Chancellor Joel Klein, which was hand delivered to him and the… Read more »


Please add Principal Amy Andino-Flor and her Assistant Principal Barry Marks of APR MS298 in the South Bronx to this list. Thank You!


Christopher Reda of P10X needs to go on the list. He’s known as the “oppressor”.

It’s impressive that you aree getting ideas from
this paragraph as well as from our argument made at this time.

May I simply saay what a comfort too uncover a person that truly knows what they’re discussing

make it important. More people ned to read this
and understand thjis side of your story. It’s surprising you’re not
more populzr since you surely possess the gift.

Bronx Theater HS, Bronx at the Kennedy campus. They treat the ATRs like slave labor. All ATRs must punch in and out because the payroll secretary Xena says we aren’t real teachers. She then sics a female named Marika on you saying she’s the AP. This person runs the school for the principal and is not an AP. She will berate you and attempt to intimate you into whatever she wants you to do. A really horrible place.


It’s Bronx Theatre. Principal is not a bad guy but has Marika, his pal, do all his dirty work. The teachers hate that place.


Just nominated some people from the CEI-PEA Network 532.
More to come from my school.
Time to let the Dogs out!

I just want to say to all the DOE educators that are going through any harassment/discontinuement drama at their school…your voice are not unheard! I am a young teacher looking for work, and this will be my first school year employed by the DOE. Since doing my research here and on other websites, I have a completely different approach to my job search this hiring season. Last year, I would have taken any DOE being offered to me…this year, I am being way more selective (which I can afford to do…I have a job in a school waiting for me in the fall outside of the DOE) I am very upfront with the principals I interview with, making it explicitly clear that I am looking to work in a supportive/positive work environment, NOT a “gotcha school”. I have held a variety of positions in schools that isn’t teacher, and while I might lack experience, I make they know that I KNOW what realistic working environment looks like. I have had a few experiences this hiring season where I will be invited to an interview, just to find out through research that the school environment is very negative. It’s not worth… Read more »


I would like to see you make a facebook page (separate from your group) so we can follow your process without being in the group. And with sights on growth. I’d be happy to help you set something up if you need assistance. Thanks!


Yolanda Ramirez, PS 38, The Pacific School in Brooklyn. Please improve this Principal’s conduct! She is completely divisive, lacks transparency, prevents parents from organizing, does not want to truth to be known. She is very controlling and teachers are afraid to speak up. PTA and parent coordinator is under her tight control too! Assistant Principal left. Now Principal is on her own to do whatever she wants.


The sad part is at PS/MS 194, Rosie Sifuentes Rosado,has done so much more to hurt people who had more invested in the school than me. She only cares about herself and is drunk with power. She and other NYC DOE administrators will continue to bully others until they are exposed. I wish I never volunteered any extra time in 194 because I got a nice kick from
the administrators, when they make 6 figures to stay after hours. At least the kids and their parents got their tax-payers money worth but the damage to my reputation by SCI and the NYC DOE haunts me. With the NYC DOE, it’s all too easy to get into trouble and have your reputation ruined because there are too many tools aggressive administrators use against staff and parents. I didn’t deserve what happened and reasonably prudent administration would have prevented my situation from being blown sky-high. I hope they bought some good materials with the money that would have paid my salary. I wish they’d be fired and more materials bought with their own.


Perhaps you should not have broken policy. Is unfair to expect principal to put their own careels at risk.


Ralph Martinez P.S. 89 principal has totally broken the spirit of the school. He has gotten away with so much corruption. It seems as though he has someone higher up that is protecting him. He has misused school funds, bullied staff, changed student attendance , the list goes on and on. The UFT has recieved countless complaints and grievences over the years and nothing has been done to remove this tyrant.


Principals are untouchable. Doesn’t matter what we do. Look at the principal at Bryant. Scandal after scandal and she’s still there
