Andre Barrett ATR Supervisor
I did fine during my observations. Just a warning. Mr. Barrett showed up three times unannounced. He didn’t ask for lesson plans or stay long. We never spoke except after my first formal observation.
Would you share more please?
He engages in age discrimination tactics to coerce ATRs to leave.
This supervisor threatens right off the bat to give you a “u”. I’ve heard this from others as well complain about the same threat.
He threatens teachers with a Unsatisfactory rating.
Yes. He threatens a U for more than 10 sick days, even if you have days in your bank. He said he supervised someone with MS, and made them take FEMLA.
They are told to harass ATRs, pressuring them to retire.
The DOE is pressuring these field supervisor to li to get rid of the most experienced teachers.
The DOE with our union leadership’s blessing, is trying to reduce the ATR pool, not by putting the ATR back in the classroom where they belong, but instead by thinning the herd with these “flyby observations” and unfairly giving the ATR a “U” rating. It is definetly age discrimination.
