ALF - Houston/Gulf Coast Chapter - HISD, charter school wage an all-out talent war

www.alfhouston.com [cached]

Pamela Farinas said she thought she had left HISD last year for her dream job, running a KIPP school in the disadvantaged Third Ward, where she had grown up.

But Farinas, named HISD's top principal in the west region in 2010, soon was begging to return. She said KIPP seemed to lack basic systems, to help gifted students, for example. Her main gripe was that 61 percent of the students at her KIPP school weren't from the neighborhood.
"I was not serving the kids I had signed up to serve," said Farinas, 39. "When I'm calling parents and they're Dr. So-and-So, these are not kids who need me to be their advocate."
Six months later, she was back in HISD as principal of Gregory-Lincoln.

Has Pam Farinas targeted African-American teachers? I am quite sure the District should have more than that on that snake, Pamela Farinas. She should have discrimination charges brought against her. Getting rid of all the African American teachers was her way of "changing the culture" and making thing better. This woman has sucked the life through out of many individual through with her lies, manipulation, and unethical practices. She has purchased a one way ticket to hell and is taking HISD with her. by Grace (Aug 24, 2012)

Pam Farinas took over Forester El. a few years ago and she basically told the staff there that if they didn't like her and her changes, leave or she would get you out through termination or any other means!
...
When will Pam Farinas tell us all why she left HISD for KIPP and abruptly returned to HISD???? What? She had to actually work with people and treat them with respect which we know doesn't happen often within HISD! Or KIPP found out she doesn't have a clue about what teaching is all about and that is why HISD took her back! So why is she back???? Pam would you dare tell us???? by So why???? (Aug 30, 2012)
