Dr Russo is not a good person. She divides staff and speaks poorly of other staff members. People are afraid to speak up to her.
Dr. Russo is not someone who should be leading a school. The things she does are not in the best interest of the students or staff. She likes to cause chaos that divides the staff and pits them against each other. Staff members who disagree with her are usually targeted-especially veteran teachers. She is unprofessional, speaking negatively about staff in front of other staff members. Dr. Russo is not fit, and should not be allowed, to run a school.
I am retired but I am active and concerned about other educators that are being harassed and mistreated by their Principals or Supervisors just the way I was treated too. After so many years of excellent observations from the new Principal (Garcia/Russo) she prefers to be called Doctor ( a total joke). I am glad that finally she was placed in this list. It is time for Garcia/Russo to suffer the consequences of her directorship. She deserves it. She has caused enough unfair damage (emotional) to many wonderful educators. IT”S TIME TO PAY!!
She is the worst! She’s a bully! Foul mouth and a bigot! She pins staff against each other. Doesn’t greet anyone in the few occasions she leaves her office which is full of her “people” or puppets who are too afraid to not do anything she asks for. She’s totally unprofessional in every sense of the word.
Dr. Russo/ Garcia is an extremely miserable person. She is the complete opposite of what a leader of a school should be. Her leadership style is one of bullying and nepotism. She rarely leaves her office, and when she does, she rarely acknowledges you.She is manipulative and favors certain individuals without genuinely getting to know her staff. If you are not a “favorite” she can go out of her way to make your life miserable, often times for no real reason. She has been heard many times over the years talking negatively and inappropriately towards staff to other staff members in her little office where her “favorites” hang out during the school day. To an outsider, she may come off as compassionate and equitable… but its all a front and way for her to gain clout. Her negative approach has led to division among the staff, resulting in a lack of unity within the team.
