Living in a Country with the Freedom to Fight Back

Ahhh Freedom! Freedom of Speech…Freedom to stand for your rights….Freedom of Information (to collect and share). I’m thankful to the 56 troublemakers who signed the Declaration of Independence and resisted oppression. Happy and Safe 4th of July!

Despite the onslaught of attacks from my administration, a few teachers, former UFT Chapter Leader and certain DOE representatives, I’m happy that I live in a country where I can push back…..and push back I did.

Like our forefathers stated and I stated back when the attacks first started in January…..DON’T TREAD ON ME!
The rattlesnakeis always coiled and ready always warns.
They apparently did not head those warnings.

I appealed to Chancellor Walcott to reinstate me, but the response I received was that I will continue to be reassigned and banished to the Rubber Room even in September despite the bogus allegations made against me. They just don’t get it.

  1. I suppose that the response given did not come from Walcott himself. So you will be continued to be paid, find out which rubber room you will be in, in September, and watch some spend all this money for hearings because you had the audacity to questions expenditures of the administration of the school as a member of the SLT committee and union delegate. The poor children of the NYC public school system are still suffering with not end site, while the suits going around bouncing off each other.
