We knew Scarmato was going to be trouble based on his Canarsie history.

No one is safe. Not even former and current union leaders at the school.

Chapter Leader was sent to rubber room at Petrides? Thought union was involved.

Anyn...vengeance is his forte

He went after every experienced teacher over 15 years…in any way that he can…The stress brought out some serious health issues and many great teachers left, retired or just living a slow death…before him Tottenville was twice in the “Best H.S. of NYC Top 50…..this pin-headed micro-manager cannot lead his way back to that grand statute…Everything is a veneer of excellence with very little depth in a 99.99% segregated enclave with a rigged Institute for DOE employees stealing services Toxic environment for students and educators….and he did this in his last two schools as Principal and work his ways in the shadow networks and RIS/LIS day….he could not teach in middle school so he is now leading teachers makes sense

This man is a bully and a coward. He never addresses the faculty at once because he tries to divide and conquer. His last act of desperation was to remove our chapter leader on trumped up charges dated back a year ago. I am a teacher of over 20 years and never had a problem with a principal or administrator until this incompetent man entered Tottenville. I was a target for simply speaking up on behalf of myself and my dept. He tried to have me investigated 3 times for ridiculous things and of course they never stuck. On his 1st day he said, “we’re taking back Tottenville!” From what? Our school never needed fixing!he is toxic and needs to go!

Get rid of this nut job. Round up these and put them on the slow boat to China. No room for this in America. He can join Chin, Dwarka and Kwait.

Mad teacher
Guest

Do as I say. Don’t do as I do, fits the model of this Principal. He had the attendance people mark the students present today at school even when the teacher questioned it when there weren’t any students in classes. What does this tell you about the man’s integrity and hschooleThe attendance person replied,”This is what Joe wants.”

Maria

Why doesn’t the whole school administration join together as one force and get him out !!!! He abuses his power uses his connections but eventually he will reap what he sows !!!!! All the complaints and investigations on him and he still in that school !! Shame on the DOE

check out the latest from Joe in the news for plagiarizing. that is probably the less egregious of things that he has done at that school. AP’S bend to his will; its his way or no way and if you disagree you will find yourself constantly being watched and low balled on observations. if you speak out or are standing up for the contract and your colleagues, you are brought up on trumped up 3020a charges. in addition, allowing AP’s to go in and change evaluation scores because he doesn’t think they are low enough. this is what a principal unchecked can do and yet still has his job. meanwhile, dozens have transferred or retired in the 3 yrs he has been there. the school of excellence (that needed no changes) has been changed for the worst

He said “We’re taking back Tottenville!” Someone also stated they were taking back Port and it was crap before she came there.

Who hired Scarmato? Who also hired the other one Swinton?

Do we see a pattern here?

Maybe we also need to look higher up

DOE INEFFECTIVE RATINGS
Guest
DOE INEFFECTIVE RATINGS

Scarmato was hired by yet another incompetent DOE Supervisor, Aimee Horrowitz. She continually gave THS principal’s who are ill-equipped to lead large high schools (Dugan, then Scarmato)and then she was forced to take-over failing schools for her incompetence, as how much more can you destroy what’s already not working??? She was even asked at one point what she did to THS by bringing in this animal, and she even admitted that it wasn’t long after she granted him an early appointment to the school, that she too lost all control over him! Now as for the other, AWESOME DESTROYER OF SCHOOLS, Swinton was brought to PRHS, as a result of yet another, ineffective, and incompetent Superintendent, Anthony Lodico. He and the DOE has heard multiple complaints from THS and even PRHS, and has continued to allow them to keep their positions, while helping the INEFFECTIVE “leaders” (using this term loosely here) continue to bully, harass, retaliate, target, faculty, and make horrific decisions which clearly hinder and harm children from being successful.

I’ve really had it up to here with this guy. I was minding my own business eating my tuna fish sandwich and listening to contemporary jazz in the teachers cafe last Tuesday and all of a sudden he confronts me and forcefully rips my sandwich out of my hands. I was thrown off and completely shocked at what he had done and then replies “I’m the principal of this school, i do what i want” and walks out. I didn’t what know what to do at the time but something must be done. This cant go unheard.

Before the new principal, on my lunch break i would usually go to the stairway right by the gym and smoke a couple bougies and crank some beers with a few of my mates. After Sacramento came to this school, he said that i wasn’t to drink on the clock which is complete BS! Im done with this guy, along with everyone else.

John Doe

After Scarmato PERSONALLY AND UNSUCCESSFULLY called patents to have their children testify against a reassigned teacher of 20 years, he PERSONALLY subpoenaed (illegal to subpoena anyone if you are involved in the case) the students to appear at a hearing. He ACTIVELY pursues parents to go after teachers.

Juanita
Guest

He clearly avoids pursuing ineffective teachers, especially if they are minority. He tries to appear to be a person who accepts diversity. It’s a facade

Principal thought it would be funny to put laxatives in the cookie dough that my students were using for the holiday treat assaigment. Not funny to the parents as I have been getting countless emails complaining about their recent uncontrolable bowels. One parent has even gone to the extremity of sending his plumbing bill to me. Extremely unprofessional and evil. Needs to go!

Nicholas Vicino

This principal thinks he’s the man, acting like he’s a god… it’s ridiculous. I would compare him to Haddam Hussein, Adolf Hitler, maybe even Joe Stalin. He’s a borderline dictator who rules on fear of students and faculty. He doesn’t support our fellow teacher John McCabe who has been banished to Petrides… it’s disgusting. #FreeMcCabe

Unfortunately,confrontation leads to further bullying, targeting and mental abuse. Makes sense that anyone who would defend this tyrant is VULGAR and CRUDE.

There have been an increase in comments left on this site the last few days. They appear to be of the mocking nature instead of fact based.

More troublesome is that they are all coming from the same DOE IP address, as well as same Verizon IP account after hours.

Is there a problem at Tottenville HS? If there is, then fix it. Spending wasted time on DOE computers posting immature comments is not the solution.

I am a student at tottenville, many overreactions, I like mr scarmato and feel as though his policies and actions have greatly helped our school community as a whole

Disgusted
Guest

I highly doubt the two previous posters are actual students at the school. Probably the same person who has come on here previously mocking and making fun of the real comments made by people who feel this principal has gotten out of hand. Yes there is a problem with the UFT they have continued to let this principal remain unchecked and haven’t provided much support to the staff

Mrs. T
Guest

Leave my principal alone, he doesn’t deserve this. Sacramento has done great things for school, just because you don’t like him doesn’t mean you have to make false allegations about him to get him fired.

What are you going to gain from it ?

Disgusted
Guest

UFT solidarity is the one who runs this blog site. This individual has been through personal hell with their own abusive principal issues. Freshman, Mrs T, student, GP the 3rd are definitely fake. All four have come from the same ip address located on the south shore and funneled through DOE network. The main goal is to remove a principal that has gone above the scope of his powers and gone after anyone who has tried to stand up for themselves and the staff. Luckily there are a few out there with the stones enough to continue the fight undeterred.

I really do hope so truth. Alot of work has been done on surface and beneath to accomplish that amd getting parents on board is the biggest part.

Disgusted with the actions of others on this site, This is not a joke, principal regularly abuses power and takes advantage of position, glad you find the suffering of city workers funny however this is a huge issue. Hoping these “jokesters” will be brought to shame… cowards.

The Truth
Guest

By making these comments awaiting moderation we may have solved the problem of these fake comments but the cowards putting them on here won.

Anonymous
Guest

Joe Scarmato is constantly observing myself and fellow teachers with an unreasonable scrutiny. If a teacher forgets to put the standard or learning intention on their lesson they will be deemed “Ineffective” as a teacher and targeted by his staff. I am a veteran teacher at Tottenville and I know that students do not care about the learning standards but yet I am forced to focus my lessons to them. Scarmato has taken away all teacher autonomy and must be stopped.

I hope these hooligans realize that while they won the battle, they did not win the war.

can we still comment ?

UFT Solidarity

You can still comment here. However, for this site, and others, comment moderation has been turned on.

Some, instead of working on improving the situation at their school, take time here to play around.

Fact Finder
Guest

Moderation on here is a tad ridiculous, although comments are immature, putting moderation on this site does not allow freedom of staff and teachers to write as they will, disappointed with UFT for this move and hope they reconsider.

The school of excellence under this leadership has once again shown its spots. Nydailynews.com today has a nice article and video about a fight where one girl has bullied another for a while and in story it mentions how administration didnt call cops. When will this be handled seriously by DOE and even UFT

So todays daily news talks with the father whose daughter beat up the other girland he clearly states ball was dropped by administration. The funny part is the DOE spokesperson saying that admin esp. Principal has been cleared in the matter
