|PS 132 Principal Anissa Chalmers-Reilly|
The picture above is from Principal Anissa Chalmers' movie "Surrender"/"Gang Girl". If you notice, she has blood all over her hoodie, behind the gun she is pointing straight into the camera.
PS 132 Principal Anisa Chalmers-Reilly (now just Reilly) is a tyrant with a temper who wants to be a film star. I actually bought several copies of her disgustingly horrible video Gang Girl to submit to Arbitrator David Reilly (no relation to Anissa) at the 3020-a of a spanish-speaking special ed teacher who hired me to help her, but he would not accept them. The video can be watched online for free (keep your children in another room) or you can buy the tape for $2.10, which is what I did.
Anissa Chalmers-Reilly should not be in any position that puts her in contact with children. She is an assault-prone person who cannot stand any behavior which upsets her in any way.
I know, because I did my research on her after I was hired to do the 3020-a arbitration of a wonderful, skilled, caring, special education teacher who was charged with threatening to kill Principal Chalmers. Below are her charges:
She did not do that, and we proved it. How? The teacher, R.S., taped everything secretly. We made several copies of the tape and the transcript, which was done at Ubiqus (the same organization which does the transcribing of the 3020-a hearings). And no, I am not getting a commission.
This is what happened:
R.S. was told that as she was a co-teacher in the ICT class, that she did not have to do lesson plans, but she had to work with the regular ed teacher and those lesson plans, to adapt the lesson to the students with IEPs. On October 5, 2012 the AP came into her classroom and asked where her lesson plan was. R.S. told the AP that she had been told she did not have to write lesson plans. The AP left. Principal Chalmers sent word to R.S. that she wanted to see R.S. in her office after the class. R.S. went to the meeting in Chalmers' private office. Chalmers said where are your lesson plans, and R.S. tried to explain that she was told she should work on the plans of the co-teacher. The principal ordered her to go back to the classroom to get the lesson plans. R.S. got upset, and told the principal that there weren't any. Chalmers got angry, and told the teacher that she would start teaching a general education english class the following week. R.S. was unhappy with this as she had never taught English, and she spoke spanish, she was not able to teach an English class on such short notice.
R. S. then reminded Chalmers that she, R. S., had a blood clot on her lung, and she was worried that she might be on her way to a pulmonary embolism or imminent death from the clot. It's all on the audiotape. R.S. was taken by ambulance to a hospital where she was served re-assignment papers and then 3020-a charges.
The tape and the transcript saved her job.

In the Daily News article posted below, teacher Gilsa Frias seems to have violated her mandate to report the Principal as a mandated reporter:
"The Social Services Law provides confidentiality for all sources, including mandated reporters of child abuse and maltreatment reports. Mandated reporters who fail to report suspected abuse or neglect can be charged with a crime."
But Frias won't be charged with anything because she is being a good employee by protecting the principal.
Carmen - (Carmen Farina, Chancellor of the NYC Department of Education) when are you removing this person, Anissa Chalmers and charging her with 3020-a? I want to know.

Controversial Bronx principal accused of pushing fifth-grade girl to floor, hurling table at her in class

Bronx mom Vanessa Roman and her daughter Vanessiana Himes, 11, say controversial Public School 132 Principal Anissa Reilly flew into a dangerous rage upon encountering Vanessiana’s unruly classroom on May 24. Reilly threw a scary temper tantrum and pushed Vanessiana onto the floor, causing a cut and bruise to her arm, the mother and daughter said.
“My daughter still can’t return to class, she’s so upset,” Roman said. “The class was out of control, and Ms. Reilly pushed my daughter down. She came home crying. It was too much.”
After the incident, Roman took Vanessiana to file a police report at the 42nd Precinct stationhouse, where the girl said Reilly pushed her, causing her to hit her shoulder.
During the incident, Vanessiana said her teacher did nothing. The teacher, Gilsa Frias, said she could not discuss the alleged attack.
“I was advised by my union that I cannot say anything about it until all the investigations go through," Frias said Thursday.
Since the incident, Vanessiana has been moping at home, too depressed and frightened to return to PS 132.
“It made me feel sad, but I don’t want to go back to school because I’m scared of Ms. Reilly,” she said.
Roman has been giving Vanessiana home-school lessons since the alleged attack and says she believes the girl, who she says is a good student, will graduate fifth grade.
An 11-year-old boy, who said he was in Vanessiana’s class, said Reilly threw a fit that day.
“Our class was not behaving. She came in screaming. She hit two students. She kicked a desk over. After, she told us to pick up her mess,” the student said.
Police are investigating the case, but Reilly, meanwhile, remains on the job.
The principal, 45, who started working in city schools in 1996 and earns an annual salary of $143,721, has grabbed headlines and earned official reprimands with a string of scandals and transgressions.
In 2013, parents raised concerns over Reilly’s side career as a B-movie actress, when she starred as a vicious, homicidal drug dealer in the title role of the unrated 2009 flick “Gang Girl.”
Reilly, who was formerly known as Anissa Chalmers, also caused controversy in 2012 when she canceled the graduation ceremony for the entire fifth grade class at PS 132 because kids were behaving badly.
Roman and Vanessiana say Reilly canceled graduation again this year, but Education Department officials wouldn't confirm or deny it.
Reilly received a letter of reprimand in 2012 for violating regulations that govern fund-raising and protect the rights of parents who participate in parent-teacher associations.
In May, Education Department officials found Reilly had failed to report instances of wrongdoing at PS 132, a charge for which she still faces official disciplinary action.
Reilly did not respond to calls for comment.
But Education Department spokesman Michael Aciman said the city is probing the latest, disturbing charges of physical violence leveled against Reilly over the May 24 incident.
“We are investigating these serious allegations and will ensure appropriate followup action is swiftly taken,” Aciman said.
