how is it that a female with so many degrees as you may say can be so unprofessional. One students are setting fires and the first thing that you want to do is see where it is coming from how "STUPID", after all it is a fire alarm. Never dis-regard. 2. students are saying that she is sleepning with the headcoach of her school football team what more. If she is and that is the case she needs to pick a better way to handle the situation. Not by confronting your staff member behind bull. Students say she use the phrase be mindful. Are you Arlene Kennedy using mindful decisions. I THINK NOT.

Oh. My. God. I'm so happy to see this. Miss Kennedy is so far out of her league it would be funny, except for the teachers and students she is hurting this year. If they don't fire her, I can't imagine who they wouldn't fire. She IS sleeping with her head coach. She's told people she wants to have his baby! I am new to teaching and it isn't for me. With people like Miss Kennedy running the show I know I don't have a future in education. I'm applying to grad schools and as soon as my commitment is up I'm leaving. New Orleans is a really fun place, but education is no place for a sane person to be.

Arlene is in dyer need of a friend. Nobody likes her and frankly at this point in her life I don't think she like's herself. She is the ideal role model you DON"T want your kids to be like. And she calls her self a pricipal.

There's another name that also give the school a bad name and it is "Ghetto Gay Ray". The wanna be preacher from the ghetto. He is so rediculous and silly. He gets on the P.A. system and speak very rudely. He demands for teachers and others to come to the office in that ghetto slang. Saying words like holla at cha boy, wo whats up, amoung other things. Is is very unprofessional and Arlene lets it go on. At Cohen you have the blind leading the blind. Don't get me wrong Arlene is a very smart person but she lack charater, passion and determination for the business. With all of the degrees she have she should have just been a over size cheer leader since she like football coaches. Maybe she can be a "Saint-sation"

Walter L Cohen is being taken over by evil spirits and Arlene Kennedy is the culpret responsible. Arlene Kennedy is trying to ruin everyone's reputation at Cohen, but little does she know, she has and is presently ruining herself. Not only is she a trespasser amongst the land of the lawful, but she is so unprofessional to the points which exceeds human rationality. Arlene, have you ever thought about working in a zoo or maybe spending a nice vacation on the island of Angola? Some may wonder why I say Angola and not St. Gabriel, which is a jail for women.....Why? Because there is nothing lady like about that celestrial creature. I heard she once took out a turkey in one go, lol! Yep, she swallowed the whole damn thing! I will conclude by saying ARLENE KENNEDY is someone that should be casts down to the pits of hell in Jesus name I pray, AMEN!

I hope she was joking about having his child...he already has a wife and four kids in Texas and a baby momma in Baton Rouge. He already have enough children. And she can hardly take care of herself. She should not be in charge of anyone's child. She can hardly handle her own son whom she has often shipped off to be raised by relatives.

Why is she still their? I took my child out of that school primarily because of her. She is abrasive, unprofessional and a total liar. She has certain rules that only apply to kids she doesn't like and the others get away with murder, literally.No one there should ever trust her, she's evil to the core!! Lie Lie Lie is all she does

Talking about me or Ms. Kennedy?

**Reprint from NOLA.COM **

Ms. Kennedy is a lot of things, but a professional educator is not one them. This is not an exhaustive list by any means, but it will give you an idea:
She was told in confidence about a teacher's medical procedure and told other people about it.

She regularly gets on the loudspeaker to yell at teachers, the Vice Principal, and the coaches.

She asked a teacher to come outside and told him she was going to hit him, then fall down, then say he had hit her.

She told another teacher she was going to kick her a** because that teacher was checking out her (Kennedy's) boyfriend.

She accused a teacher who needed leave for cancer treatments of lying. When that teacher's doctor called, Ms. Kennedy made fun of her accent and hung up on her.

She gave a student who had been suspended for hitting a teacher permission to come on campus during the school day for a birthday party.

She doesn't give anyone substitutes when they are absent. As a result, when they come back their rooms have been trashed and there is clear evidence of drug use that took place when they were out.

She printed out a list of the special ed students and their GEE scores and passed it out at a faculty meeting.

She made an announcement about a special ed student who needed a lot of help in front of students. Yes, she named names.

She asked someone in the office to falsify a report that was going to be used in court. When that person refused, she forged that person's name on the form.

The school raised $10,000 parking cars during Mardi Gras. That money was turned over to Ms. Kennedy and never seen again.

Normally I would agree that "no one deserved to be treated like the unprofessional and profane creators of this video have treated her" but this isn't normal. Ms. Kennedy terrorized an entire school for a year. I hope getting fired is a wake up call that prods her into getting the mental health help she needs.
