Once Upon a Time,

Hamburg Middle School was the Twilight Zone. Someone was walking down the hallway at Hamburg Middle School one morning before classes started. Much to their concern there was an English teacher on all fours crawling around the floors of her classroom gnawing on the electrical cords of the district computers. She had the cords in her mouth chewing on them- the foam oozing from her mouth dripped down the cords on to the floor. The pooling saliva laced with bits of wire and droplets of blood from her torn lips created a safety hazard because it grew so big. This teachers eyes were blood shot. Bulging eyes accompanied her agitation about the impending day ahead. It would seem there was a substance abuse issue with this sad soul. This teacher was going around in circles on her knees chanting- I must destroy these wires so this lesson will not take place. I must stop this lesson from taking place. Chewing and gnawing at the wires of the electronics in the room will certainly ensure that I can sit around my room all day and do nothing and send the students to Hamburg High School not knowing a noun from a verb. She was mumbling on- I will chew these wires to severe all power sources to this equipment. She went on to say that she is an uncivil creature who munches on wires because she can not articulate herself; she confessed her insanity in these utterances and revealed that she is dangerous to students. She admitted she can not distinguish reality from the imaginary characters in her head. We called the EMTs, and they came wrapped her in a straight jacket and sent her way to the county home for a mental evaluation. The cost of this teacher conduct will cost dearly, the wires alone are pricy.

THE END

I wish Mr. Cornell the best as he takes over this mess. Hopefully, the ridiculous parents group will give him time to settle in before they go on the attack again.

And I hope that the sheep on the school board who meekly follow Mr. Yoviene's disastrous lead will grow some courage and actually represent this community.

WE DIDN'T VOTE FOR ANY OF YOU TO SIMPLY SIT THERE AND RUBBER STAMP BAD DECISIONS DRIVEN BY EXTREME PARENTS. You are here to represent all of us, not just the LOUDEST among us.

Get it together and start doing your jobs instead of just keeping board chairs warm.

I'm sure Mr. Cornell is a very nice, competent man; however, HAmburg is NOT entry level. To have been a principal of a 5-8 school in Lily White / Executive / Professional / Still Middle Class Amherst is only one kind of a preparation for this superintendent's job. HAmburg has poverty and (obviously) high-spirited parent-type groups and home lives that present tension and challenge in every classroom. Thirty years ago Hamburg's largest elementary school had a free-and-reduced-cost lunch program for whom 30% of the students qualified. Imagine how that figure has "matured" in a diminished local economy. The appointment of this nice man - and I hope I'm totally wrong - is not good for Hamburg, and not good for Mr. Cornell.

10:12 am- Mike Cornell is great, but he is not ready for Hamburg as you pointed out. But guess what no one else wanted the job. Cornell will end up like Jetter, Achramovitch and Crawford run out of town by those crazy parents headed by Dan Chiacchia. Its only a matter of time. And too bad for Mike, he is a super good guy. I will give him 12 months.

Shocking because Mr Cornell does not have credentials for the position. He has ZERO central office experience. ZERO (that's very concerning). 10:12 mentioned competence, yet he has not proven competent as a central office administrator? --Was the posting/criteria ever shared here?

I do not have anything against him. Really. It's just a HUGE leap to assume that a middle school principals credentials align with the position of Superintendent.

Also. correction to 6:27. The former Supt's listed above also were not run out of town by the parent group and Dan.
