Stamatina Hatzimichalis, Principal
She is mean and intentional and targets people that she does not like. 20 teachers that were here for years left within the first year after she started. The rest are leaving this year.
She is manipulative and condescending. It is her way or no way. She has created a hostile environment for her staff and people are afraid to speak up.
She very unprofessional. She ignores most of her staff and doesn’t even say good morning or afternoon. She only talks to some staff and if she does talk to you it’s only because she has something negative to tell you. In other words she calls you to her office to reprimand. It makes you feel unwanted and unappreciated. Everyone in the school building looks miserable and nothing positive comes out the the staff besides I can’t wait till the school ends. Or I can’t wait to get out of here and go to another school: the turn over is outrageous. Most staff dreads coming to work and it’s not because of students or school it’s because of the administration. Then let’s talk about her AP who has only taught less than 5 years. And in those 5 years she has been in ICT class not even putting her weight as a special education teacher. Her AP is telling teacher how to do their job when she never led as an example. What a joke. Rumor states that she hired her because she is her friend and she will cover up for her when she does all the things she is not suppose to do for example: not reporting all incidents that happen in school. She also is sleeping with the custodian.
What a shame that this evil Ursula continues to destroy what was an awesome school for teachers parents and students. Get Lucifer’s sister out of there and bring back positive harmony to this school .
There should be psych evaluations for adminstration. There is no chance Tina or Amanda Cougan would have ever passed that.
They think they are the “Mean Girls” of the school and in their “Own League” oh boy they sure are. Their own league of ugly, (inside and out) and pure TRASH.
Good news, if you want an out of classroom position at PS131all you need to do is give your voice away like Ariel or water her plants, or buy her a cake that says #1 Principal!
Its offical. This school has lost 95% of their amazing senior teachers. Tina and Amanda have driven them all away.
If you are looking into this school to work, or to send your child please go elsewhere.
Admin.. we know you are reading this. Take a long hard look in the mirror and realize it is you who has made everyone leave.
In the very few years she has been principal, over 40 teachers or staff have left and some retired earlier than they wanted to. That’s more than enough info you need to know.
I have been a classroom teacher at PS 131 for a very long time now. I have witnessed greatness and now thanks to Ms. Hatzimichalis I’ve seen misery. Ms. Hatzimichalis has been principal for about three years and we have nothing but questions for her.
Why are you always so rude to your staff?
Why do you have favorites and aren’t scared to show it?
Why do you retaliate against staff members because you simply do not like them?
Why do you threaten teacher positions when they don’t do as you please?
Why did more than 40 staff members leave, from teachers to security to guidance?
Why is your staff scared of you?
Why can’t we have friends and talk to them openly?
Why is the gym teacher allowed to work closely with her girlfriend Ms. Brittany on everything?
Is that appropriate? Professional?
Why are the same people involved in everything? Is that equitable?
Why do you harass others for the exact same things you allow others to do?
Do you think all of these are good examples for our students?
This is just half of what is going on in that “gem”. Send help!
