    Rumors went around the Lehman campus about the mass exodus at this school. The turn over is quantified as only 6 out of 40 teachers remaining at the school under this new principal.
    Concern about transparency and reports of harassment and abuse, ageism and retaliation, nitpicking and humiliation of teachers. This post is to say buyer beware. A pattern is beginning. Document everything.

  2. Hi, just wondering if this comment is specific to the actual Westchester Academy?

    Thank you.

  3. OmG they let Yira Salcedo be a principal!

    She comes from failed Samuel gompers cte Hs …. she was a Apo who was useless and incompetent.had no clue what she was doing and followed that ridiculous principal Joyce Kittrell around like her personal butler …. despite how they were destroying that school.

    She was once a shop teacher (Ms. Pimentel)who couldn’t control her class . Geez …. setting the bar low…..

  4. Yira clearly has connections and couldn’t have been appointed principal because of skill. She has turned a once great school into a place where incompetence rules the day, and you are punished unless you fall into line with her bizarre way of doing things. She does not trust teachers, assumes the worst about every adult and child she meets, and should feel ashamed of what she did to destroy this school.

  5. Wow. It’s all true. She is a viper bent on destroying good teachers with U ratings, lying about them and driving them away or getting them fired. Students are either really scary or really scared. They hate the admin and all the new teachers. Very oppressive atmosphere where fights rule almost everyday.

  6. The two APs at this school should also be looked into. They have colluded with Yira to destroy teachers and to clean out the school’s per session for themselves. Add Kristen Schaefer and Simone Hartley to the ANOI lists- they deserve nothing less.

  7. Westchester Square Academy turned into Who Selected Administration HS

    Salcedo aka Pabla Escobar – Takes over a grade A school with great structure and destroys it within months. I heard she even found a way to push a Big Apple award winner out the door. No care for good hearted staff, just soldiers that will fall in line. Not surprised to hear about her failures as a teacher, APO and currently Principal (Half of a human brain)

    Hartley aka Pabla’s Sicario – The worst of the three headed monster. Had no problem lying or deceiving staff. Not effective at communication, so she can get a bit nasty like her weave. (Half of a Reptilian Brain)

    Schaefer aka Pabla’s Spy – Probably just happy to be an administrator and has been forced to follow the vision of destruction, set by Salcedo. Probably the only one ashamed of having to be a part of the destruction of WSA. Guilty by association. (Full poisoned Human brain)

    Hoping the previous administration and ex-staff land at GREAT schools!
