  1. Concerned educator

    I once applied at this school. The principal’s e-mails reflected a lack of command of basic grammar and writing skills.

  2. Plays favorites. Favors hispanic students and teachers. Humiliates Black teachers and pushed them out. Uses others to do his dirty work. pushed students to graduate against their will to raise rate. kids were not prepared. had to back down on one student, who was underage but pushed older ones out successfully. Has said that the staff needs viagra because the werent passionate about their jobs. harasses older teachers and pits young against veteran teachers. covers up regents anomalies.

  3. Why is this principals anoi page promoting him? He is a career ruining, vindictive man. His brother (also Namnun) got fired after a spectacular scandal. Google it. There was a fine paid because this principal got his job via nepotism. Teachers and students are miserable.

  4. Educator against bullshit

    Namnun is promoting himself on here because he’s obviously proud of the infamous honor that comes from being on this list. Congrats, you are an administrator in need of improvement! Be self reflective and realize this is not a good thing. You’ve probably ruined people’s lives in the process.

  5. Pokémon Collect them all

    New AP , or ATR AP Danny Velasquez of the infamous sex scandals with other principal at her school. The other one Stuart or something, was disbarred , has scandals regarding stealing money from Katrina victims. Admin at Namnun’s school are getting worse, and they already had a reputation. Perhaps the blow job copier principal John Chase should be the next Pokémon added to this collection.

  6. When we allow incompetent people to get their positions through corrupt means, what do you expect? Of course his school is going to be awful. The teachers are held to a high standard, and administrators are held to a low one. A former AP at this school basically told kids how to answer a Regents essay during the test. I feel bad for the kids that go here. Please apply to other ELL schools. There are several in the Bronx…Bronx International, New World, etc.

  7. Full of Broken promises and nepotism. Very sad for the kids, its just a game to get them to pass the regents in anyway be it the wrong one. The APS live in their own office that was once the teachers space now we wander around looking for a home on preps. Cant print or make photo copies unless a form is filled out 5 days ahead of time..insnaity!

  8. Namnun is a liar and a cheat. Everything is about playing the “game”. He pretends to put “children first” but only cares about manipulating numbers. He is vindictive and cannot be trusted. Also, in evaluations, he uses the rubric to support his own agenda. If he doesn’t like a teacher, he will selectively not see things during an observation. He also has a very poor command of the English language.

  9. NYCDOE investigate please

    Check credit accumulation. Check minutes for this so called Dual Language program. Check the curriculum, licenses, language of instruction. Check all technology purchased in the past 10 years. check hiring and firing patterns ageism and racism. this man routinely has meetings to set younger teachers against veterans and has been purging a list of 7 got to go highly paid teachers over the past 5 years. when it all comes out it is going to be an explosion.

  10. Apparently keeps a “got to go hit list” known to a few, and unleashes unscrupulous APs to harass intimidate, write up and destroy the confidence of, you guessed it older veterans of color. Has been known to badmouth females in the office and try to pit them against each other. plays games gassing up the heads of white teachers who compete for crumbs of privilege, authority, autonomy and respect. He has them running in circles, but beware tge golden boy status. It never lasts long. Once a crop of teachers figures out “What’s up” he will unleash harassment. You never know which colleague is dropping a dime to gain leverage. He is notoriously paranoid and got rid of the teachers workspace. The lack of unity among the staff means they are unable to mount a successful push back. Scary scary scary.

  11. Creates fake technical programs to fudge together with ESL There is no facility of any kind.

  12. Concerned parents

    Poor command of the English language is the least of this so called principals problems. Investigate please! It’s a shame that the superintendent and the chain of command has turned a blind eye to the incompetence of this individual. I will be transferring my child out of this school he is a disgrace.

  13. I interviewed at this school and after 10 min it became clear there was no directive no structure. An hour into the interview and after understanding nothing that was said it became crystal clear that I was being sold a dream. Glad I declined.

  14. Soundview Teacher

    Targets teachers, and admin forced kids to graduate against their will while unprepared. Investigated, complaints, spends money questionably, been reported everywhere. currebtly has kids on a sxhedule where they never leave rooms and forces teachers to go room to room

  15. Former Staff Member

    This Principal hired by his brother who is no longer employed with the DOE due to a second nepotism scandal pursued me with great vindictiveness in attempting to have me removed from his school and terminated from the DOE. I Also witnessed his fabrication methods of getting rid of teachers by using the same methodology used on me, with and extra added use of student and colleagues statements for his fabricated investigations. I will add to this a truth that he is also blatantly homophobic and racist.

    This former shoe salesman has come a long way in ruining other people’s lives who were born in this country.

  16. Educator against Bullshit

    Ramon Namnun allows his AP to run his school. He is incompetent as a school leader. The focus of the administrative team is to target teachers beware to all DO NOT APPLY.

  17. Ramon Namnun does nothing but plan hidden agendas all day. Students are not programmed in correct courses, grades are changed with pressure of Administration, IEP’s are not followed. Close this school fast. Namnun and his three tails use threats towards teachers in conducting a Dog-and-Pony show when high officials visit. School is a total mess. New agenda: not allow any students to bathrooms, give useless task to teachers and staff to waste time. Karma is coming soon stay tune.

  18. I thought all of you are supposed to be the educators of a High school not actually act like you are in high school.

  19. No organization. Admin is locked behind closed doors all day long every day. Meanwhile the school runs amuck. The principals paranoia and narcissism along with AP ms disfuntional behavior will finish this place. Don’t let her well spoken behavior fool you. The principal is nothing more than a prop a puppet being manipulated by the AP. This place is nothing but a revolving door. the fact that this had continued so long meanwhile affecting that community for years is really shameful. If you want a career in the doe steer clear of this place and if you have children spare them and send them elsewhere.

  20. So it appears the pattern of discrimination is taking shape and folk are realizing the tactics used to push out teachers through bullying and harassment. DOE knows of horrible accusations but has done nothing.

  21. Principal Ramon Namnun had an AP, Ms. Johnson. She used to take all of his students to the cafeteria for state tests and give them all the answers.

  22. “Dos hermanos no deben pelear, es tiempo de recapacitar… Es tiempo de cambiar en la mente de todos, el odio por amor.”

    “Two brothers should not fight, it’s time to reconsider … It’s time to change in everyone’s mind, hatred for love.”

    Let’s welcome the wonderful new school year with the dedicated and valued staff members who made the decision of returning to HSWC. We are one of the very few 100% New Arrival ELL schools in NYC DOE, and we all rejoice in making positive differences for our students lives.

    Let’s not let our past, anger, and hate take our focus off the goal: Guiding New Arrivals to be successful in our society.

    And most importantly, let’s not tread on each other as professional educators.

    “Es tiempo de cambiar, it’s time to change.”

  23. Lol diablo que obsession con esta pagina… it must really bother them.

  24. I want to wish everyone a wonderful summer vacation. I’ve been the subject of several malicious tongues, and I have decided to respond to these rumors. Enjoy reading

    I want to wish all my colleagues, a safe and wonderful summer, get lots of rest and enjoy life to its fullest. I understand you’ve all endured a horrendous year under your administration, I know I’ve been there.

    However to Namnun and M, I have a special message for you below:

    Let me begin by Congratulating you on a job well done. True to your word, you’ve managed to get rid of teachers and faculty who stood in your way. You started with Dr. Marquez, whom you, M and unbeknown, to Pappas, set in motion a plan to remove her. You three sat in your office, pulled down your shade for an entire year and proceeded to exclude Dr. Marquez, from Cabinet Meetings, planning meetings and all other meetings that she as the Senior A.P. should have been involved in. Mind you M was still on a teacher line, she should have been teaching. You then blamed Dr. Marquez for not following through on your procedures, and not meeting deadlines which she was not aware of. You stopped including me in the Cabinet meetings because I was to vocal and as you said “I was just a secretary and should just sit there and take notes”!

    Once you removed Dr, Marquez, you gave Ms Pappas, an ultimatum, that she leave or that she would receive a U rating. How cozy it was for you. Now you and M continued your wrath of destruction without anyone to stop you. Your plan worked, for that I must commend you. You gave the same ultimatum to Mr. Akrami, Mr. Saad, and Mr. Grant to pressure them to retire.

    You desperately tried to remove me but your plan failed, because of my accident, and ultimately my retirement. I know you had a plan set for me when I returned but I did not give you that chance. You therefore, since my retirement, have the nerve to blame me for your failures. That does not work here. You blamed me when the auditors, came because I was not there. Had I been there, I would have proved to them that you ordered me to pay M for those hundreds of hours without justification and documentation, and she was getting paid as a teacher for an entire year while not setting a foot in the classroom.

    Ms. Rosado, Ms. Villar, you gave a higher position and set them up to fail. Mr. Matos, Mr. Files-Aime, and Ms. Cabrera were your next targets, as was Mr. Powell, however, you could not pin anything on Mr. Powell so that backfired.

    All these teachers/AP’s and myself were on your “Hit List” to terminate or remove. Some just because they did not agree with your or M procedures or illegal methods. All this under the guise of “improving the school”. A school where M was paid hundreds of hours in per session during the summer when she never once appeared in the school. In addition, M whom you hired as a AP without proper credentials and sat in your office studying to pass her exams while receiving her full teacher’s salary until she received her credits for her license. If you check M’s file you’ll find that M received a “U” when she started teaching. Perhaps if some of the teachers you got rid of had the opportunity to sit in the principal’s office while they studied and still receive a full pay check, they too would have succeeded.

    So again, you need to reframe from using my name for your failures. I know what you both are all about and I have no problems exposing everything. I expect that my name or reputation not be easily spread or tarnished without merit. For your information, I retired after 30 years of dedicated service to the Board of Education not because I sucked up to anyone, nor did I sleep with anyone to get where I was. I never received a U rating, nor was I ever reprimanded for my work. That’s my work, not work that I was not mandated to do. Good Luck to you as you will definitely need it.

  25. Todavia anda asarando la vida de maestros namnun? Ese tipo tiene connecciones fuerte en el doe. Tan desesperado buscando salida los pobres. Pero sigan ahi creendo en el diablo.
