BRAVO to those who stand up for our kids.

Investigation

It’s unfortunate we had to go this route, but justice has to be served. I didn’t take a $20,000+ cut in salary and send myself in to more student loan debt to be stopped in my tracks. Principal Linda Hill and her cronies came after the wrong parent/educator. On top of that, Department of Education officials seem to be assisting her in not only hiding her financial misconduct, but aiding in trying to destroy my young career as an educator.

PORTELOS v. DOE/PRINCIPAL HILL

by  on November 28, 2012 in Uncategorized

It’s unfortunate we had to go this route, but justice has to be served. I didn’t take a $20,000+ cut in salary and send myself in to more student loan debt to be stopped in my tracks. Principal Linda Hill and her cronies came after the wrong parent/educator. On top of that, Department of Education officials seem to be assisting her in not only hiding her financial misconduct, but aiding in trying to destroy my young career as an educator.

I don’t think so. They were not ready for me.

My attorney, Bryan Glass Esq., and I filed a Federal lawsuit in June 2012 (see below). The Department of Education attempted to try and have the case dismissed on September 21, 2012. Federal Judge Renee Mauskopf, of the Eastern District, questioned NYC attorney Christopher Seacord and asked why should we dismiss the case so early without looking into the plaintiff’s claims? She basically told them she will not dismiss and will allow for full discovery. Forgive me as I’m trying to learn all the lawyerspeak and lingo. My understanding is that full discovery allows for all documents that pertain to me including deposing people whose testimony can back my claims. I made a rather lengthy list of DOE and non DOE employees who I believe hold the answers.

Even though Judge Mauskopf informed the city that she will not allow dismissal, the new NYC attorney, that took over the case, Jessica Giambrone, is still pushing forward with a Motion to Dismiss attempt.

ALL Schools with a (DEVELOPING ) have a C or lower

So Why did Bryant get a B?

Bryant High School Holiday Party a Flop- Money could of been used for our kids – Shame on Them!

flistons

This years Bryant HS Holiday party was a flop with only a hand full of staff attending.

holidays-single-party-drink-sex-christmas-season-ecards-someecards

The question is  how was it  paid for ?

If  the school paid for it  ,did the SLT know about it during the  budge discussions ?

If Dwarka did ,How did she pay for it , was it with her personal funds?

Does she have a School Credit Card?

Bryant High School “BOYS CLUB” Needs to be Investigated.

boysclub

Did you know that Bryant High School has a “Boys Club” ?

Member Teachers are allowed to get away with anything they want ,including” Double Dipping”

Example Mr T—–I was able to teach a college class and an athletic club at the same day and same period. One may ask how can he get away with this? Someone payment two reasons why ,The first reason is the leader of the BOYS CLUB is the one who needs to  approve of payment of these teachers   and then sends to it Dwarka.

Second Reason the founds come from two diiferent sources .Someone needs to pull or question the time cards from the school and PAL.

We Are Back – Namita

 

Investigation

We are back and this time we will uncover much more.
