Pamela Farinas, the principal at HISD's Cecile Foerster Elementary School, really wants her students to read, and she is willing to go to great lengths to motivate them.In May, school administrators gathered some Foerster students together to generate a list of stunts they would like to see the principal perform in exchange for the students' reaching reading goals.Every time the students meet a reading goal, Farinas will perform one of the "fear factor" stunts.Come fall, students will have the opportunity to cover their principal with silly string or watch her try to roller skate for an entire day.

"I started my very own book club for fourth- and fifth-graders this past school year," said Farinas."It was great, but I realized that the love for reading has to start much earlier.When I visit a second-grade class and read with them, you can guarantee which book will be most requested book from our library the following week."
"Anything I can do to generate an interest in reading must be done," continued Farinas.

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)
