  • PS139 was a school that I loved and was proud to be a teacher at. We were all like a family until Mary McDonald became the principal. We alll thought she would be good for our school at the beginning, but our expectations were short-lived. Mary is an extremely irrational and erratic person. She conducted witchunts and I watched helplessly as many of my colleagues fell victim to her persecution of them, which in many cases, were unfounded. So many of us left the school or retired early because 139 became unbearable during her aegis. She should be removed from her position and be put back in the classroom. She is an extremely troubled individual who is inept when it comes to motivating and encouraging her staff. 139 is now an unhealthy atmosphere for it's dedicated and hard working instructors!

  • PS 139 used to be a great school until Mary MacDonald became the Principal and destroyed it singlehandedly.
