Geralda Valcin, Principal
COALITION SCHOOL FOR SOCIAL CHANGE
GERALDA VALCIN, I.A. PRINCIPAL
2351 FIRST AVENUE, MANHATTAN, NY 10035
Ms. Geralda Valcin, who thinks she is Fidel Castro, is now a principal! She treats ATR’s as if they were peasants without rights. I heard her in the main office threaten a teacher “I will call your field supervisor and tell them you are refusing to cover the class!” after the ATR explained she was on an early schedule and wanted to know if she would be paid for covering a 9th period class. WOW!
Ms. Valcin is the WORST I HAVE EVER WORKED WITH. Very Ghetto, unprofessional, classless administrator I’ve EVER encountered.
Apparently her new school is understaffed and teachers are resigning midyear to avoid working for her. She does not treat students with kindess and respect either.
She is another member from the Africana Americana Sorority Sister Club that are given these positions to exemplify that even if your incompetent you can become a principal in the DOE.
The dirty non-secret to success for these hell holes is to put someone unqualified in charge, and push out the rubish to artificially inflate “graduate rates.” (Drop-out rate is more appropriate.)
