The new principal is def not as good as Steve was. As a mom I've noticed her people skills are lacking. Also I hear teachers are unhappy and some want out.

Give people a chance. Sometimes people don't deal w/ change well. I'm sure given some time everyone will mesh together. The old principal was not very strict, & I'm sure it takes some adjusting to get used to a new style of leadership.

Oh my I absolutely despise Mrs. Beth!!! She is always unhappy and rude!! Why is she still at the front desk greeting people?! As far as all other teachers, I love them. Bend Gate is a great school!!

I have no problem with the current principal at all. Mr. Stiener was an amazing principal. Id imagine it's very hard to fill those shoes. My child opts to watch mr stiener read books on tv rather than Disney or cartoons. He was over the top!!!!! Very into the children and personable with them. Those are one of a kinds!! Maybe If people could express that in a positive manor to the new principal it would be easier for her to make a change rather than hearing all the negative comments stated here. I have faith we haven't seen the last of Mr. Stiener at Bendgate!

Whatever you think of her personality, she does a lot of generous and kind things for others.

She takes her job seriously and follows the rules to the best of her ability. she's to the point and could I suppose come across rude but.... That's not her intent. If you have a problem with her it is probably because you were trying to bend the rules that she won't let you bend. Again doing her job. She's always friendly regardless if I'm getting the answer I want.

She is making Bend Gate walk the line that is why they don't like her!! She is very strict and it is all about the kids and not the parents. She will bring that school up to where it should be.

My children attend Bend Gate. I am there almost eveyday. I have wathced the school go from being GREAT to be TERRIBLE. I have to say she is no t there for the parents, staff, or KIDS. Her best friend is over there now and the entire staff is ready to transfer.
When you walk in the building you can feel the tension.
I am truly considering taking my children to Holy Name if she is still there next year.

Maybe the new principal needs to get the kool aid recipe!! And spike it! You could could the tension in the air with a knife. Always great teachers there. They all look worn out this year. Always smiley faces when Mr Steiner was there and good scores! Don't know the scores, not any smiles. It's cold in there.

As a parent of a child at Bend Gate, I SEE the misery. These teachers have been amazing, hard working teachers to my other three children and current one with the last two principals before this one, BUT they are worn out and stressed. You can SEE it, you can FEEL the tension. These are people who have worked to help my children succeed, love school, and rightfully earn high marks on all state tests and further AP classes! She is NOT producing better. Children aren't clueless, they see the worn out, stressed teachers that are miserable. If good teachers are lost, I will seek out Holy Name! Parents, stick up and support what you know as excellence before this, never before, new principal.

Have to agree! Two of my own have gone through Bend Gate. And Good students! One still there. Same teachers totally different atmosphere, And not in a positive way. Teachers just wanting to go home. Early!

Beth is horribly rude. It's impossible to get her to talk to someone like a reasonable human being. I've tried to be polite when I go in, but she's a bitch
