Support Ms. Eva Ravelo

May 17th, 2010 by admin

Support Ms. Eva Ravelo by writing to the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Superintendent’s Office.

Here is the template…

Dear Mr. Carvalho,

I am writing you to support Ms. Eva Ravelo. The email she sent wasn’t
actually meant for a parent and was just typical workplace banter. This
small mistake should not adversely effect Ms. Ravelo’s job.

This is a discretionary matter on your part, and I’m sure a reprimand is
plenty of punishment for Ms. Ravelo’s inadvertent email to parent which it
wasn’t intended. Good administrators are hard to find, let’s not let one
incident ruin the career of a good principal.

Sincerely,

Name and Town.

    If you want to send emails like Flavor Flave, don’t become an elementary school principal.

    I think this type of mistake has happened to ANYONE that uses email (especially if your system automatically pulls up addresses recently used).

    It is blatantly obvious from the reply that the email was NOT intended for the parent. One would hope that an educator would use proper English when replying to an email.

    It is RIDICULOUS that this has made the news. Why didn’t the parent call the principal and discuss the response she received? We are all adults (some of us) and profanity isn’t something we haven’t encountered throughout our lives.

    Sh*t happens…deal with it!

    I am a substitute teacher in Lee County and let me tell you something…parents need to wake up and realize their kids are NOT easy to deal with. If parents did their job the Principles would not make a comments like that. So she did, big deal. It was sent to the wrong person, oops! Do you know how many teachers sit and bit*# about students ALL day. Every teacher I have met complains one way or another about the students in the classrooms today. I think schools should bring back the paddle. I think parents should use the belt/paddle at home and BE A PARENT and stop blaming the schools because you aren’t doing a good job! Get over it people, she made a mistake. How many of you have made mistakes that should have cost you your job…

    My children attend the school and Ms Ravelo has always presented herself professionally. She can usually be seen standing outside every morning helping the children and making herself available to everyone. She really cares about the children’s education and welfare.(Ask Commissioner Sarnoff’s Office).
    The e-mail sent to the parent was obviously meant for someone else. The parent that received this email bit down on Ms Ravelo’s mistake like a pitbull and is clearly trying to accomplish something personal (hence the media).
    I hope the Miami Dade County School System stands their ground and manages this situation properly. Reprimand her for her mistake, but don’t move Ms. Ravelo from the school to satisfy the handfull of parents screaming for her head. Those parents do not speak for me or any of the other parents.

    My son has been in Coconut Grove Elementary for three years now, and he just finished the school year with honors. I have personally seen Ms. Ravelo greet my kid in the morning three or four times a week, every week, all year long when I drop him off. Ms. Ravelo was the real thing. Available to parents, and open to conversation. Concerned about the welfare of the kids and diligent in enforcing policies which yielded results. One time my son told me he was getting harassed by bully kids, and I took some time to visit the principal and discuss the problem with her. Turned out there was a big problem with bullying in the whole school. Well, two or three weeks later there was a school-wide campaign against bullying and per my son’s own account none of the ‘bad kids’ go around picking up fights any more. Well done Ms. Ravelo! As much as some people may think that this lady lacks morals, ethics, professionalism, etc. etc., ironically, this lady was a REAL CLASS ACT as far as running an elementary School was concerned. An embarassing mistake on her part, granted, but to end her exemplary career over something as stupid as this would be an even GREATER mistake for the Miami School Board than the principal’s imprudent clicking of the ‘send’ button.

    May I remind everyone of the time in 2000, during a rally in Illinois, when Bush was overheard calling New York Times reporter, Adam Clymer, a ‘major league assh0le’ over the microphone to Dick Cheney. Remember who won the presidency of the USA a few months later? Evidently, being potty-mouthed isn’t actually a crime.

    Potty-mouthed principals do not belong running elementary schools period. Even this very strange and low-brow website has its limits on potty=mouths: “You are free to voice your opinion but please keep it clean. Any comments using profanity will be rejected.”

    Elementary, my dear.

    By the way, can anyone even understand what the first respondent meant to say? Wow. Who was her TEACHER? YIKES!!!

  9. dontlowerthebarforpublicschools

    Oh -I see the first respondent was moved down to number 2 And the “Flavor Flave” comment was moved up to number 1, thus making number 8 response poking fun at the “Flavor Flave comment.” Not ethical- and so I rest my case on the person who maintains this site and the people asking for the reinstatement of Principal Ravelo.

    Not Ethical
