This guy is the ATR supervisor for the Bronx. He retired in March and was working out of Monroe HS. He’s targeted several ATRs who were brought up on charges from a very vindictive Ms. Bridget Bye of Pan American HS. He will berate you and try to get you to admit to his accusations. Make sure you have union rep if he meets with you. This guy went after a close friend of mine, Dr. Edwards, who was a pastor. He harassed him intensely last year. Dr. Edwards described him to me as an evil man. Dr. Edwards passed away last spring, right before he was about to retire. One of the finest friend’s I have ever had. Guys like Ryan need to be lanced like a boil from the DOE.
I should have added Ryan is still working, part time.
I have him this year as my supervisor. I had my first formal. I don’t know how things will work out.
He is a perfect fit for the worst school system in the USA. We are getting what we deserve!
Being rated in another system it is also discriminatory. And not having assigned classes is discriminatory while they hire new teachers. Having our Union negotiate secret deals without voting on it is discriminatory. Being rated by someone we never met is outrageous. The whole ATR Pool is discriminatory. Etc….
Shameful and ridiculous. The Union is to be blamed for the harassment that we put up with, and the abuse.
Our Union is a complete disgrace for allowing its more experienced teachers to be targeted because they became expensive. These field supervisors are only there to harass us, and rate older teschers U.
I had him…he gave me all u’s…nothing I could do was right. I knew all my lessons were good but not according to him. He brought me up on 3020a for incompetence.
Mr. Ryan does not live in the State of New York. An investigation showed he lives in New Jersey. Violation
I was given U’s by him …and brought up on incompetence by him which led to 3020a.
The Union will never help us, they want to get rid of ATRs.
So far this year he has been reasonable except for his request to submit weekly lesson plans.
Mr. Ryan should not be ritualisticly collecting lesson plans.
He is trying to harass you.
As a first time Absent Teacher Reserve I had Mr. Ryan and I am surprised with those negatives comments, he never show up to my observations intoxicated, he gave me constructive advice. I really like the guy..this was 2015/2016 school year…He offered to give me a letter of recommendation…I was never under the impression he was out to get me.
He has a clear agenda.
Rate many ATRSunsatisfactory using unquestionable methods. If you are old neat you wil be forced out.
They are told to harass ATRs as much as they can.
He refuses to model a lesson, yet he sets up high expectations that are impossible to follow.
I had cancer (survivor) but Ryan wanted me out.
I had very bad looking skin at the time all over my
face. Had a perfect record with no U’s but couldn’t
get hired from any of the schools! Gave great interviews
and had references from past schools! Ryan wanted me
on the street with no insurance!! And he wasn’t even
my ATR supervisor. He just showed up one day with
Carol Brown . . another serious damaged personality.
I wanted to go to the chancellor or mayors office and ask
what type of people do they have working for the DOE
Their job is to harass us to retire or resign. Our UFT is supporting them.
And I’m not finished with this creep. I was never absent for
17yrs, and never late in 22yrs! Never received a
U rating !! But I am a veteran teacher from a closed school
and that’s all it took!! I’m lucky he didn’t have his way
or I would have been in debt for cancer treatments!
They like to target older teachers.
Lucky thing I’m finished with these idiots
in June! Next year will be better at new school!
Fair student funding is responsible for age discrimination , including but not limited to : negative observation ratings, being told harassing lies during your post-ob , being over-scrutinized on a daily basis as administrators look for anything they can call a problem even when it isn’t a problem, being treated differently than younger teachers and told you didn’t do enough of something during the lesson, false accusations, principals having derogatory conversations about you with parents in an effort to gang up against you, closing schools and dismissing only older teachers who have to go on interviews that they will never win, being unfairly targeted for termination charges, being ATRed and therefore sent like a bag lady or man from school to school. And the list goes on. And this is ALL the result of Fair Student Funding
