Dr. Fanning, Principal
PS/IS 119 The Glendale, 7401 78 Avenue, Glendale, NY.
This principal only knows how to micromanage teachers rather than foster their talents and teachings; an ineffective principal
You obviously do not no what you are talking about. Teachers in this building are hardly micromanaged unless they are incompetent. And then they don’t last very long.
Pardon my error. I meant to write “know” instead of no.
This principal pretends to care but really only cares about money, and bumping up the work load on the teachers, and students. She has sucked out the fun from this school! She has made it very clear it is her way or the high way when she lost great staff members last year. I will be taking my child out from this boot camp of a school next year! Dr. Afghan is out of touch with what the children need and had the audacity to tell a kindergarten teacher to stop being so motherly to her students!!! Give me a break lady!!!!!! I can’t believe she is a mothe herself she is very cold and not warm at all, poor kids!!
She really is a horrible person!! She only cares about her budget that’s why most of the veteran teachers leave. She makes their lives a living hell so they want to leave and she can hire a brand new teacher that costs half the money. She only cares about the gifted and talented because they can test well for her scores.
This is total nonsense. Really, where do you people come up with this garbage. The really horrible person it seems is you, who hides behind anonymous comments. We have many senior teachers in the building who are all treated with respect for their knowledge and experience.
If you knew anything about our budget you would know that our school is constantly underfunded. I doubt you were there to hear the principal allegedly telling a teacher to stop being so motherly. The kids in this school are all very happy and that is because this principal has always, and will always continue to put the children of this school before anyone or anything else.
What kind of nonsense is this? This principal and her supervisory staff are the first people in the building in the morning and the last to leave. Everybody who works in this building is a professional and is treated as one. If you are not competent as an educator, you won’t last long in this building because Dr. Fagan will put the needs of the children first. And if there are parents who place their own interests above that of the children, she is not afraid to stand up for the kids. Sometimes doing the right thing is not always the popular thing. Doing the right thing sometimes results in disgruntled teachers and parents. In all my years of teaching, I have not seen a more competent supervisor. All of these comments should be disregarded as nonsense.
this is not a place to grow your career. dr Fagan is very controlling person. She only cares about looking good for the superintendent. Therefore on the outside the school looks good but on the inside it’s a completely different story. She is a very difficult and is always contradicting herself when she gives feedback so your dam if you do and damned if you don’t. The AP are no different they are just her puppets that do what their told. There is no diversity in the staff and no sense of cultural awareness. Its feels like you are back in high school where everyone has there own clique you are either in or out . The UFT person is also no help she never keeps anything you tell her confidential Please keep away from this school
