A close-up look at NYC education policy, politics,and the people who have been, are now, or will be affected by acts of corruption and fraud. ATR CONNECT assists individuals who suddenly find themselves in the ATR ("Absent Teacher Reserve") pool and are the "new" rubber roomers, and re-assigned. The terms "rubber room" and "ATR" mean that you or any person has been targeted for removal from your job. A "Rubber Room" is not a place, but a process.
I’ve been keeping this one under wraps, but feel there is no real need anymore. Back in October Ilive streamed myself sitting in a Rubber Room and doing nothing while still getting paid $75,000. I’m hoping most of the taxpayers affected realized I was exposing this forthemand not to rub it in. Obviously guilty people don’t put themselves out there like that and don’t forget I am here because I blew the whistle on corruption. That was almost four months ago and I’m still here in the Rubber Room, in the same situation. They tried to give me busy work but haven’t checked on me since early November.
In any case as the media was calling me for interviews and educators around the country were sending me messages of support, one was not too happy with me. Here is the first email I received from what I assume is a fake Yahoo account:
You are a bum, and I’m sick of paying for you to do nothing. You were a problem in the school community, and were removed appropriately. If you were a man of honor you wouldnt accept a paycheck anymore. In the private sector, you would’ve been kicked out on the street where you belong. You are obviously incompetent of holding down a position, and you do not belong in any position teaching kids. Be a man and give the money you are collecting back.
You were kicked out of your school. You should be on the street, not getting a paycheck. You are incompetent, and were removed from your position. What don’t you understand about that? You’re a worthless bum.
There is no formula. The day you were removed from the classroom was the last penny you should have collected. So take every penny you have gotten paid from the second you were told not to come back and give it back to us.
commented on 20 Miles from my Family and StudentsWhy did you have another kid if this situation was going to be so stressful? You HAD to have a second kid?! Hopefully, he won’t grow up to be a whiny baby like his father.

I spoke to one of these DOE Tech Support specialists (dont’ remember which one) who informed me that it can be traced back to the exact computer.
NYC SCI is investigating and assigned case number 2012/5547.
I am under investigation for 20+ allegations. Most of them involve technology. i have not been found guilty of any of them. I basically served all the information needed to apprehend the harasser on a silver platter. They can trace the computer and then cross reference to video surveillance. They could also subpeona Time Warner records.
Nice try, but apparently you had no idea who you were dealing with.
