Darlene Miller was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving. She was convicted of DWI, but Appealed the decision to the Second Department Appellate Division, and lost her appeal on April 15, 2021. (see the decision, below). She was removed from The Museum School in 2020 but received her full salary anyway.For what, you say? For sitting in a rubber room. I do not believe that most DOE employees who were convicted of DWI or another criminal act would be getting their salary for 10 years after being arrested.
In 2018 I was hired to do the 3020-a cases for two teachers at the Museum School. One was a general education teacher who had been at the school for many years and was the UFT chapter leader. The other was a Special Education teacher who entered the Museum school in September 2017, and yet both teachers were charged with 3020-a in June 2018.
My point is that I was fortunate enough to spend three days with Darlene Miller, and can, therefore give you all my opinion. The first day, Miller came in looking disheveled, very similar to her picture, above. She was more or less incoherent, and we wondered whether she was drunk. On the second and third dates, she came in more put together, but still showed an arrogance that led us to conclude we were wasting her time.

This proves that TIPs have no value except to demonize a teacher and make evaluations into worthless paper. There are no facts in observations. (Elentuck v Green). See also my article about the case of Edmund F Farrell.
