  1. This principal has zero suspension policy. Meaning that no matter what infraction students make, there are no consequences for them. Example: Five male studnets are play fighting with an a young girl from another class, several minutes after the late bell rang. All of these students are cutting class. The play fighting turns serious when the girl smacks one of the boys really hard in the face. The girl runs down the hall and the five boys throw her to the ground, punching and kicking her from all sides. One of the boys pulls up the girls shirt and bra and exposes her breasts. The boys run towards their classroom as she lays there screaming. After the boys are rounded up along with the girl, they are sent to the office and fifteen minutes later all of the students return to the classroom. No one is suspended, not the boys or the girl.

  2. Students routinely physically abuse teachers. A first year teacher gave in her resignation today. Admins lay fault on the special ed teacher who was ordered to teach out of compliance by the principal. The teacher was given a student who belonged in a district 75 school, due to her violent attacks on staff and other students. The teacher was slammed between the door frame on the head and back three times until Paras pulled her away. No suspension took place. The Admins gave pressure to the new teacher to return to work and did not approve her LODI forms.
    Frustrated by having to teach out of compliance and been attacked she resigned after the Christmas break.

  3. Steeve Travessire refuses to have the building fumigated despite several reported accounts of infestation of water bugs, roaches, and bedbugs. The principal has made accusations that students and teachers are bringing their bugs from their own homes and even conducted an emergency meeting to accuse a teacher (who was not present) as the culprit for bringing flour to feed the insects. The poor teacher is the only UFT member to stand up for other teachers but he gets zero back up. I feel bad for him but am also worried for my position.

  4. Students are allowed to batter and abuse physically and verbally teachers.The principal has no suspension policy and excuses the student behavior at every turn. Steeve created a “Climate Center” where students who fight, or cut excessively go to talk to counselors and after they are allowed to play on ipads and listen to music with head phones. He believes in rewarding the trouble makers and offers zero incentives to students who do the right thing. Now good and bad students fight among each other to get a chance to hang out and be rewarded for their bad behavior. Principal uses intimidation tactics and falsifies observation reports to target teachers.

  6. Principal Steeve has used unprofessional and racist remarks towards teachers, school aides and dominican students. As a Haitian myself, I think he brings a bad atmosphere to the school and divides teachers, staff and students. He is also bringing down the quality of my own people. Haitians are very friendly and loving folk. We are not all racist like Mr.T. He has called new teachers, “clowns”, “idiots” and “whitey”. He regularly asks focused questions about how to run the school, at staff meetings to weed out and target staff members who he considers challenging or difficult. He treats me okay, he doesn’t bother me, but I have seen him attack teachers verbally in meetings. He does not like Hispanic or white male teachers.

  7. I don’t have to tell you that our school is on the brink of collapse. We see it every period throughout the day. Students belittling us, using foul language and verbally abuse each other along with constant acts of violence. We have an Administration that does not hold student behavior accountable for what they say or do. Rather, they have asked students to write testimonies against teachers for corporal punishment. Yesterday in the cafeteria was a riot. Several eighth graders were seriously beating on each other. Class 802 vs. class 804. This could have been avoided if suspensions had occurred the week before. Several of these students were fighting and nothing was done.

    In front of my very eyes a female student was fighting NYPD and was thrown to the ground and handcuffed while six police officers held her down to the ground as she resisted arrest. The female officer then lifted the child by the chain of the handcuffs to induce pain and submission. I looked at the Principal run in fear of his life to the office. He was pale and shaking and did not have a clue on what to do. Minutes later he announced for all teachers to keep the students locked in the classroom which led to additional fights and place everyone in a more volatile situation without support. The administration has no control of the students and the parents are seldom helpful.

    The Administration don’t know what they are doing. Class 804 today was given pizza and were allowed to do not work today. One student was even sleeping on the floor in the front of the classroom with a coat over his head. They had there desk thrown all about on the floor chairs turned over and they were being rewarded? For what? Why does the principal allow a riot take place in the school, doesn’t suspend all the parties involved and then buys them pizza? I’m all for nurturing but that is ridiculous. Only a few students were arrested in class 802, but I am sure that none of the students will be suspended and will be allowed to return to classes.

  8. I just discovered that out of all the students arrested that not one of them were suspended. Students were back at school walking the halls attending classes and then at ninth period some of the boys from both classes began to fight yet again. This is a sad state of affairs. Follow up on the girl who was cuffed by students. A colleague informed me that prior to the police attacking her, the principal himself was seen throwing her against a wall. the student said, ” Why are you throwing me around like I don’t have a father”? The principal reported to the NYPD that she stated” You don’y know me I can have you shot in the head by my father”. Thus the arrest. Still, staff are timid about report
    ng the incident and what was said and done by the Principal who loves to write teachers up for corporal punishment.
