Its seems with the arrest of Harvey Weinstein the Manhattan District attorney is looking to re-open a sexual assault case from 2005. The arrest of Harvey Weinstein has many questioning the statute of limitations on these crimes. SO WHAT DOES THIS MEAN FOR DAVID JIMENEZ, WELL THE DECISION OF FEDERAL COURT JUDGE DENISE COTE STATES IT PRETTY CLEARLY.

The words you are about to read were written by Denise Cote.

Background

Unless otherwise noted, the following facts are undisputed and taken in the light most favorable to the plaintiff (Felicia Bray)….. In September 2008, Bray began working at the Manhattan Center for Science and Math high school as an interim acting assistant principal of Operation…..

During her time at the School, Bray’s supervisor was Principal Jose David Jimenez. Bray asserts that over the course of the year that followed, Jimenez SEXUALLY ASSUALTED AND HARASSED her in six incidents described below.

  • The First Instance of sexual harassment occurred on October 15, 2008. Bray and Jimenez were at the school after normal school hours to attend a School Leadership Team Meeting. After the meeting Jimenez and Bray walked to a restaurant near the school. At the restaurant Jimenez touched Bray’s hand and told her he really liked her. Bray responded that she felt uncomfortable and wanted to leave. When they returned to the school’s parking lot, Jimenez asked Bray to reenter the school. Bray followed Jimenez to his office where Jimenez grabbed her breast from behind for two to five minutes. Bray screamed so loudly that a school custodian came to the office door. She hid inside Jimenez’s bathroom while Jimenez spoke to the custodian….

According to the website Findlaw.com New York criminalizes a wide range of conduct constituting “sexual abuse,” which is generally defined as subjecting another person to sexual contact without the latter’s consent. New York Penal Code Section 130(3) further defines “sexual contact” to include “any touching of the sexual or other intimate parts of a person for the purpose of gratifying sexual desire of either party,” and touching of the actor by the victim, as well as the touching of the victim by the actor, whether directly or through clothing

THIS PRETTY MUCH SOLIDIFES THAT DAVID JIMENEZ SEXUAL ASSAULTED FELICIA BRAY AND SHOULD HAVE BEEN ARRESTED, BUT INSTEAD JIMENEZ CALLED ON HIS FRIENDS INSIDE THE NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION TO PROTECT HIM. HIS IMMEDIATE SUPERVISOR AT THE TIME FRANCESCA PENA HAD FELICIA BRAY TERMINATED. PENA EVENTUALLY WAS FIRED BY THE DOE. (FEEL FREE TO READ THE TRANSCRIPT BELOW FROM THE NEW YORK CITY DEPARTMENT OF EDUCATION.)

JIMENEZ WAS RECENTLY FINED $200,000 FOR SEXUAL HARASSMENT, BUT STILL HAS A JOB. THIS IS THE REASON WHY PEOPLE SCREAM ABOUT TENURE. ODDLY ENOUGH MANY OF THE YOUNG FEMALE TEACHERS THAT JIMENEZ HAS HIRED ARE FEARFUL TO BE ALONE WITH HIM AND PARENTS OF FEMALE STUDENTS HAVE REQUESTED THAT THEY BE NOTIFIED IN ADVANCE OF ANY MEETINGS JIMENEZ IS HAVING WITH THIER CHILDREN.

CURRENTLY JIMENEZ IS TORTURING TEACHER WHO OPPOSE HIM AND TRYING TO FIX THE CHAPTER LEADER ELECTION FOR THE UFT. SINCE DAVID MUSALIK GAVE DECIDED NOT TO RUN FOR A SECOND TERM.

About three weeks ago I was confronted by David Jimenez. Jimenez who stands an impressive 5 foot 4 inches decided that he was going to confront me over post that I attached to the FollowCSA Twitter page highlighting his sexual harassment of Felicia Bray. Jimenez is currently on the executive board of the Council of school supervisors and administrators for Manhattan high schools.

The confrontation with Jimenez occurred prior to the NY Post article highlighting his $200,000 in fines for sexual harassment. Now I wish I could say I was surprised by these fines, but I am not.

Recently, I had a conversation with a staff member who name I will not reveal. This staff member informed me that Jimenez has hired a number of young female teachers over more qualified male and older female teachers. This staff member also noted that these New teachers are afraid to be alone with Jimenez and a number of parents have requested that their daughters be given prior notice for meetings with Jimenez so that parents can attend these meetings.

The New York City Department of Education knew about Jimenez’s behavior since 2009 and chose to do nothing about it. In 2013, arbitrator Lisa Brogan questioned Jimenez’s credibility and leadership. She also noted that workplace harassment was prevalent at Manhattan Center, but yet she chose to ignore that facts and allowed Jimenez’s reign of terror to continue.

Rumor has it that Jimenez spends most of his time harassing those older teachers who knew about the Bray incident.

It’s hard to believe that Harvey Weinstein lost his business for similar allegations, that Anthony Wiener  (Carlos Danger)is in jail and Bill Cosby is heading to jail for similar sexual assault, yet David Jimenez still has a job

 

 

Front Page news, but No Justice.

The front page of the May 5th, 2018, New York Post gave this blog validity . For the past four years, I have been writing about David Jimenez, the principal at Manhattan Center for Science and Math high school in East Harlem. I was a Dean at the school when I heard the “Dildo story” from former assistant principal and current principal of the  Bronx theatre school Daniel Albetta. About a week after hearing the story from Albetta, Jimenez came into the dean’s office and asked me, “Do I have your support.” Unsure what that meant I just nodded. After all reporting it would have just been labeled heresay.  Now looking back in hindsight, I now know that heresay is admissible in 3020a hearing. Needless to say that my half-hearted response to Jimenez would lead to me being targeted for workplace harassment, but that story is available on this blog.

On Sunday May 5, 2018, I reached out to Susan Edelman to congratulate her on the story. Ms. Edelman responded with “Front page, but No justice.”

At first I thought, maybe she is right Jimenez still has his job and the taxpayers are paying his fine for grabbing Ms. Bray. So Jimenez gets off scott free.

No I don’t think so. You see the pen is mighty then the sword and social media allowed the message to reach the masses. So here goes.

David Jimenez should be responsible for the $200,000 in fines he has racked up. It should be garnished from his salary every two weeks or better yet David sell your Mercedes-Benz and pay your fine.

David Jimenez should be out of a job. Harvey Weinstein lost his company for similar allegations. Billy Cosby is going to jail. Kevin Spacey lost his show and even Vince McMahon of the WWE took a hardline stance and fired one of his wrestlers when they were accused of inappropriate sexual conduct. But because Jimenez works for the New York City Department of Education he is untouchable. Really.

The DOE responsed that Jimenez has been rated effective and his graduation rate is 96%. Jimenez has been substantiated on charges of misappropriation of funds. As for the Graduation rate at Manhattan Center for Science and Math high school it has always been in the high 90’s . Former Manhattan Center Principals,  Steve Askanasi and Corrine Vindal enjoyed similar graduation rates and without the drama that has followed Jimenez.

In my time at Manhattan Center, I heard about other women in the building being sexual harassed by David Jimenez. Allegedly one female employee found her car keyed after filing a complaint again Jimenez for sexual harassment. Some of these women chose to leave Manhattan Center instead of facing the wrath of Jimenez. I’m just wondering how long its going to be before current assistant principal of operation Denise Winchester comes forward with similar charges against Jimenez.

David Jimenez’s behavior of sexual and workplace harassment in well known inside the walls of Manhattan Center. Retaliatory behavior is nothing new for Jimenez. For example, in 2013 Arbitrator Lisa Brogan noted that the Administration at Manhattan Center actively participated in harassing me. Ms. Brogan also questioned Jimenez’s credibility. In Bray final decision Judge Alexander Tisch noted that, “Jimenez became aware of these complaints and engaged in retaliatory conduct.”  According to Susan Edleman’s article a former assistant principal at Manhattan Center called “Jimenez mean and vindictive saying he shouldn’t be a principal.”  Jimenez’s abuse of women and employees are just the tip of the iceberg, Jimenez’s abuse of school’s finances are just as profound.

The NYC Department of Education version of Harvey Weinstein is David Jimenez.

20180131_110353

Recently, I noticed that a post on this blog made the #metoo twitter feed. The post Fifty shades of Bull@#$! was written in April of 2015 and was primarily geared to show the sexual harassment that takes place in the New York City Public School system.  Sexual harassment and work place harassment run rampant inside the New York City Department of Education and many times reporting these incidents will fall on deaf ears.

On July 10, 2013, United States District court Judge Denise Cote ruled on a law suit filed by Felicia Bray against the New York City Department of Education

http://law.justia.com/cases/federal/district-courts/new-york/nysdce/1:2011cv/387092/39/

The words you are about to read were written by Denise Cote.

Background

Unless otherwise noted, the following facts are undisputed and taken in the light most favorable to the plaintiff (Felicia Bray)….. In September 2008, Bray began working at the Manhattan Center for Science and Math high school as an interim acting assistant principal of Operation…..

During her time at the School, Bray’s supervisor was Principal Jose David Jimenez. Bray asserts that over the course of the year that followed, Jimenez SEXUALLY ASSUALTED AND HARASSED her in six incidents described below.

  • The First Instance of sexual harassment occurred on October 15, 2008. Bray and Jimenez were at the school after normal school hours to attend a School Leadership Team Meeting. After the meeting Jimenez and Bray walked to a restaurant near the school. At the restaurant Jimenez touched Bray’s hand and told her he really liked her. Bray responded that she felt uncomfortable and wanted to leave. When they returned to the school’s parking lot, Jimenez asked Bray to reenter the school. Bray followed Jimenez to his office where Jimenez grabbed her breast from behind for two to five minutes. Bray screamed so loudly that a school custodian came to the office door. She hid inside Jimenez’s bathroom while Jimenez spoke to the custodian….
  • A second incident occurred on November 26, 2008 Bray was driving out of the School’s parking lot when Jimenez drove up beside her began honking his horn and yelling for her to follow him “right now.” Bray ignored him and drove away.
  • The next incident took place in the spring of 2009. Bray was in her office with a colleague Dan Albetta when she received a call from Jimenez that she meet him in the health office. When Bray and Albetta arrived at the health office, Jimenez asked Bray to open the a desk drawer. The drawer contained a dildo and Jimenez asked Bray if the dildo was supposed to be in the office and began laughing. Bray responded that the item was frequently used in sex education classes.
  • Next, Jimenez invited Bray and Assistant Principal Arleen Milton to attend a formal networking event in Queens on May 8, 2008. Jimenez had asked if he could accompany Bray to her house so that they could drive to the event together and Bray refused. At the close of the event , as Bray was entering an elevator a belligerent Jimenez began screaming at her and demanding that she go home with him.
  • Around the same time Jimenez as Bray to attend the Senior Prom with him in May of 2008. when she declined, Jimenez reassigned  Bray from AP of Operation to AP of Physical Education, a position she was purportedly not qualified.
  • In July of  2009, Jimenez asked Bray to bring a binder with financial documents to his office. Jimenez met Bray in the hallway leaned it toward he and sniffed her neck and laughed.
  • In July of 2009 Bray began to complain about Jimenez’s sexual harassment.

In November of 2010 NBC news Reported Felicia Bray’s Sexual harassment complaint against David Jimenez.

https://www.nbcnewyork.com/news/local/Harlem-Teachers-Say-Principal-has-no-Principles-110881364.html

Bray’s Cases unfortunately did not move forward because of the statute of limitation on reporting sexual and workplace harassment.

Jimenez on the other hand was left at Manhattan Center and the allegations of sexual and workplace harassment continue. As one teacher from Manhattan Center for Science and Math High School called the environment dysfunctional.

 

 

 

 

See if you can guess who I am now

ZomboMeme 22012018164626It’s been a while since I posted to this blog, but this caught my eye today when it popped up on my son’s Facebook account under people you may know. In 2015, I wrote a post about Manhattan Center for Science and Math principal David Jimenez using the alias David Betancourt for his Facebook page. It seems nearly three years later Jimenez continues to use an alias. Now this is the same man who reported me to the Office of Special Investigations for allegedly having  a Facebook page that made comments about female teachers at Manhattan Center. Well I never had Facebook or any other social media and still don’t.

So the questions that need to be answer are simple,

Why is Jimenez using an alias for a social media account if he is doing nothing wrong?

If the New York City Department of Education frowns on teachers having social media accounts why hasn’t Jimenez been questioned about his Facebook account?

Finally, what is principal David Jimenez hiding?

The reality is David Jimenez should have been fired years ago. He is a lying sneaky backstabbing individual who has no ethics.

Maybe Jimenez should just stick to downward facing dog.

 

The Disappearance of Daniel (Fredo) Albetta.

Picture2

I really wanted to post this in June, but a health scare interrupted my plans.

In late May of 2017, I received a number of comments on this blog about Daniel Albetta, the acting principal of Robert Wagner Secondary School in Queens.

Now I’m assuming here, but it seems most of the comments where made by members of the staff of Robert Wagner Secondary School.  The one constant in all the comments was that they read this blog prior to Daniel (Fredo) Albetta’s arrival.

One comment noted that they had read my blog and thought that I had stretch the truth a bit, but they changed their mind when they met Albetta. They also noted that this blog was often read by staff to prepare for Albetta next move. Talk about predictable.

Another comment noted that Albetta was given a mentor to help him through the difficulty first year. The writer of the comment noted that the mentor called Albetta an moron.

Another comment noted that in staff meeting Albetta would rarely talk and when he did he nobody would listen.

Another comment spoke about Albetta trying to fix grades a practice he commonly used at Manhattan Center. At Center Albetta would have those kids who missed gym write an essay at the end of the year for a passing grade.

Albetta is currently sitting in a Queens district office doing nothing.

Well here is my question? If Albetta was a great AP how come Jimenez didn’t take him back?

 

 

 

HEY, David, I’m still popular and you’re not!

ZomboMeme 29042017124112

Recently, I had stopped in the Love Cafe to get my coffee.  When I was approached by a Manhattan Center Student who asked me, ” are you Mr. Silvers?” I nodded yes and continued to give my order. This student then said, “You’re really popular amongst the students, Everyone reads your blog.” I once again politely nodded without saying a word. I thought to myself I’m still more popular then David Jimenez.

Jimenez once told a former teacher that these students won’t remember you when they leave. Interesting I thought because I am stopped by former Manhattan Center Students almost everyday. No David that line only fits in your mind.

After listening to the students comments, I decided to check my blog and to my surprise they were a my visitor numbers were up and there was a number of comments. Some of these comments were extremely vulgar and I did not post them. Most of the comments single out members of the administration at Manhattan Center. For example, one comment noted that, “they never see the principal in the hall or anywhere else to matter.” Another discussed Mr. Hernandez’s behavior and how they feel uncomfortable when he is around.  Now I know from my experiences with Mr. Hernandez this is a common theme.

One even commented about the FDR drive incident with Dan Albetta. To the author of that comment, Mr. Jimenez lied so much about that incident that the arbitrator noted his LACK OF CREDIBILITY.

Another wanted to know more about the alleged sexual harassment charges. To that author I presented the information that was set forth in a court of law. Now in my opinion I believe the victim.

Let me close in saying that I enjoyed reading your comments and I will post those comments that are well written provide a point or opinion and have no vulgarity.
