Parents demand answers from PS 11 in Queens on lowest-rated teacher Pascale Mauclair – NYPOST.com
This is what is happening to teachers since Michael Bloomberg pushed to have flawed value-added results released in New York City. Pretty nice huh? I imagine this lady feels wonderful about her job each day. No mention of her students, how they are motivated, how well their parents help out at home…nothing, just that this lady is a failure…
The city’s worst teacher has parents at her Queens school looking for a different classroom for their children.
Pascale Mauclair, a tenured $75,000-a-year educator at PS 11 in Woodside, ranked among the very bottom out of more than 12,000 fourth- through eighth-grade math and English teachers citywide.
“I need to speak to the guidance counselor and switch my daughter to another class or change the teacher,” said Md Haque, 42.
“Every parent expects their children to grow up smart, and it takes a competent teacher for that to happen.
“My next duty is to find out from the guidance counselor what is going on with this teacher.”
Another parent whose son graduated last spring from the same school was outraged that Mauclair cannot be fired for low ratings.
“I think she should be out,” said Rosa Bivar 41. “Let her go, and take the money, her salary and give it back to the school — they need the money.”
