    What a huge loss for CPS. She actually cared about the students. She is actually the type of person who should be the CEO of CPS.

    Really too bad for CPS but I’m sure she was just tired of all the corruption. Emanuel won’t do a thing but promote it.

    I was previous A/B student at Fenger High School, and she is no super star. She rarely ever made connections with the students, and she cost so many teachers their jobs. One teacher alone left because she threaten her career. She has a nasty attitude, and she has no remorse for anyone. She never even learned my name. The person who deserves praise for the turn around is Dean Gordon. She forbidded him from attended the graduation, but as you can see senior still praised him as the valedictorian stated his name. She was barely at the school. Only time she cared is when they filmed. She’s a camera person, she’s no principle.
