She was appointed to this school under Espinal. She’s a terror. If you have any teaching wisdom, avoid her with all costs! She will ruin your career by putting you in very unprofessional circumstances. She’s said she will clean the building and her first year she discontinued 4 teachers; 2 of which she begged to come to the school but you must know 9 other teachers LEFT!! She has to fill 13 positions. This is your first year! It destabilize your building but what’s worse is your students are constantly subject to inconsistency. She’s really bad news but will beguile you with lots of lies!

Mrs. Williams first full year was 2016-2017. As of Sept. 2017, 13 teachers LEFT!! THIRTEEN!! She discontinued 4 and 9 others ran. The same 13 were responsible for DOUBLING the ELA scores. With 13+ new faces, do you think the school can function properly? Why do this to yourself?? R U N!!

It is hard to understand, frankly, why a woman of the caliber of Ms. Williams would ever be placed in a position of authority. She substitutes leadership skills with meanness and interest in the students with spiteful control. When I was still teaching there, my children would tell me that they did not like her and that they saw her make so and so cry. She has relished the opportunity to demolish the careers of people who truly cared for the children and were able to connect with them in a meaningful way. A colleague who was particularly gifted was discontinued with an “ineffective” rating, though before Williams came into power that teacher earned effective and highly effective ratings.

I believe that her collection of meanness, spite, and ego are toxic tools and one day will lead to her downfall. My only real concern is that she may destroy the school with her divisive behavior and damage the children’s opportunity to experience a meaningful school experience.
