A lot of what the Crack Team wishes to share about the travails suffered by yours truly at PS 154 will be a mixed bag. A stream of consciousness here, not in chronological order there, just what comes to the mind if the Crack Team.
Today's travails pertain to the Calvinistic approach to principality of DR Alison Coviello of PS 154. Yes, when God is not in our schools enough, DR Alison Coviello brings him back. But first a little
As previously stated, my program was changed to include literacy, specifically the so called literacy of the Cult of Lucy Calkins, Writer's Workshop, etc... This I believe (in my heart of hearts and I don't care about the denials) was done to set me up to fail. I have been in touch with enough current and former administrators to know this is a fact.
So basically, no matter what I do, how I do it, it will be deemed unsatisfactory, a failure, no good, and completely wrong. I can have a formal observation in which every student will magically go up 3 grades in reading levels and it will still be deemed a failure.
But at least I want to give it the old college try and at least believe that there is no determination on whether or not my formal lesson will be deemed unsatisfactory.
Well, this ain't to happened at PS 154 for DR Alison Coviello has brought the Calvinist approach to being a principal in per-determining and deeming a lesson unsatisfactory before it is even taught. Please feel free to listen to this conversation obtained by the Crack Team between myself and DR Alison Coviello. Listen carefully after I say, "You couldn't even find one could thing to say," at about 36 seconds, she will then share that she believes what I had written is unsatisfactory. Listen carefully.
Again, all per-determined. Not just for me, but for all the others that DR Alison Coviello does not like at PS 154.
Much more to come. Including imperfection, much the way Nomad found those upon the USS Enterprise to be imperfect.
