matthew anderson and his brother mark anderson are both criminals and have been their entire lives. anyone who knows them knows that they have been in and out of jail all of their adult lives. not only money forging but drug dealing. mia shouldn't have been involved with him in the first place. she should be ashamed of herself being with him, someone so beneath of her. mia was well aware of the illegal activities long before she married him. she is not completely innocent in this matter. she was spending them phony 10 dollar bills too. in fact she was the one who teach him how to use the computer to make the phony money. matthew and mia are both getting what they deserve.

how does the board of ed keep an individual like this employed? Shouldn't vice-principals, principals, teachers--really, anybody employed for our children's instruction be good role models and examples for the children in their midst? Guilty or not-Guilty--something went on that was not befitting the reputation of anyone in a leadership responsibilty within the school--she should NOT STILL be working for the dept of ed in the capacity that she is...the whole system is bogus! It's no wonder the public school system is on a downward spiral of student moral and academic progress...Attitude affects leadership!!!

The update on the case which was not published is that Mia was cleared of all charges. The charges were dismissed within weeks. She was arrested as a ploy to make her husband talk. For all of those who posted something negative it speaks volumes about what your character is. The only difference between you and her is that your personal business was not published for the world to see. I guarantee you that you have something in your past or present that you do not want the world to know because they would incorrectly judge you. Some people were very happy to see her go through this because of the person she is. Jealousy is a scary thing.

Do you know something we don't? Was she convicted or just accused? If she was convicted she would not be able to work in a school, so she was accussed!!!!. I have kids at PS/IS 268, and I don't feel that way!. She has always been a professional. She is an excellent example for the students on overcoming obstacles.. Remember anyone can be accused of anything. Jaywalkers can be arrested. She has a strong leadership presence and cares about the kids. You should be more concerned about the quality of teacher your child has.

Mia Peebles is just as phony as those dollar bills she was printing. I know her on both a personal and professional level and she has a very ghetto demeanor. Her colleagues have given her the nickname "Ghetto Rat". Parents turn their nose up at her and say she is rude and not friendly. She deserves to be in jail with Matthew because she was enjoying making and spending that phony money. The board of education must be desperate for employees to keep someone like her around. The only people saying positive things about her are her family members who she brings with her from school to school. They are the only ones naive enough to stand behind her. I am not shocked at all to read about this and it is not hard to believe that ghetto Mia would do something like this. After all you can take the girl out of the ghetto, but you can't take the ghetto out of the girl!

I work at 268 also. The view you expressed is NOT how the staff views her. There are many staff members and parents that find Ms. Peebles is a strong leader who is helpful and professional and gets the job done. You work at the school you know this is a fact. The students love her and respect her. She is about the students!!! Why are you posting about something from 5 years ago, that was dismissed within weeks by the court. You have a PERSONAL issue with Ms. Peebles, why don't you go and talk with her. Her office door is always open. Are you one of the teachers that she had to meet with about their job performance not being up to standards? That would explain your statements.
