    "This school has had a series of misfortune with its administrators. The current principal held a lot of promise. Completely unprofessional and no behavior managment in place for the students. The kids are so out of control and he rather bully her staff than ever correct a child. If students and parents do not respect their principal, they also won't respect the teachers either. This is a BIG problem. The nice looks of a school does not reflect how it truly is on the inside. Any school can change for the good, but with this principal, its just more of the same; a hostile work environment and burned out teachers. She really fooled her new staff. Good thing is, that Chicago has better options than this school. This one is a mess!"

    "I went to the school as a child and now my kids go there. We have challenges in the community, but one thing we want is that the people who teach our kids are being respected and not belittled by their principal or whoever is in charge (for the time being). The principal seems to fear parents and their complaints so she lets the kids do what they want. We got letters about a new PBIS thing and I don't see it working. kids running out at dismissal, they can hurt the little ones and the principal just plays like she don't see anything. She just wants the paycheck but doesn't seem to truly push the kids to the next level. THAT IS HER JOB!!! yes she tried to say that she got rid of the other teachers as a "reform" thing in reality they just left! vry smart, I wonder how many of the teacher will come back next year. Try Funston or ANY other school in the network. If the principal can't handle this small school, find another person, even the Vice principal seems better."

    "What that principal did to McAulliffe is a travesty. There is a reason HALF of the staff left after her first year in 2011-2012, even the AP she hired! The principal lacks leadership. She's an alpha-male. A good leader builds strength of others & an environment of trust & community. The school had a leadership team prior to her arrival. She belittled their voices. She YELLS at her staff. Her lack of respect & leadership skills are a recipe for disaster. If she focused less on being seen as the boss-man, she'd realize not replying to parent & staff emails & ignoring students who need special support are ignored. She went an entire year w/o holding an RTI meeting! How many students fell through the cracks last year? This principal wants a submissive & malleable staff. I'm sure she replaced the staff with new teachers; they're cheaper & naive. I hope they know a bully when they see one. She's disrespectful & the definition of a bully. She's passive-agressive, then someone questions her & she attacks. Any pleasantries you see are not genuine. She succumbed to the disgusting ways of CPS leadership. As a parent, I recommend you find a school with a better leader, not this dictator."
