Ms. Harper previously served as an AP at PS 147 where she assisted Principal Julia Drake in discontinuing teachers who refused to follow unethical and illegal demands of the administration. Harper conducted unfair observations of targeted teachers.

During my one year working in the NYC public schools, Ms. Harper was my assistant principal at PS 147. I was hired to teach ESL, but throughout the year the principal and assistant principal piled on other assignments above and beyond what is normally expected of a teacher, let alone one in her first year- teaching ELA to the entire 3rd grade, covering all other teachers as a substitute any time one was needed, and serving as both the school’s sole Social Studies instructor (which I was not hired to do at all) and the sole ESL teacher. After I stood up for the rights of my ESL students to being taught by me, the requisite number of hours mandated by the state of New York, Julia Drake and Chayvonne Harper saw to it that I would be discontinued. Ms. Harper conducted many of my observations, all of which resulted in U’nsatisfactory ratings, no matter how many of her recommendations I implemented, and wrote me up numerous times for contrived counts of ‘insubordination’ and ‘failure to follow state testing guidelines.’

Most of my students were fluent in English and struggled about the same amount that their peers did, but they were stuck in the system because at this school, very few students (native English speakers or not) had the skills to pass that test. I saw it as my goal to help them place out of ESL so that they would be able to dedicate their full attention to the reading, writing, and math, which was what they needed the most, rather than constantly having their day disrupted for English lessons when they were just as proficient in English as their peers. Anyway, the week of the test arrived and I learned all the proper testing protocol. The tests are very long and many of my ESL students also had the challenge of attention deficit. With only 7 students in the testing room at a time, I… Read more »

This principal has brought down the quality of the school tremendously. Teachers are not united especially because she has favorites. All she cares about are test scores. Toxic environment.
