i have heard alot of negative things also. Not only from my own child, but other parents and children at the school. i talked to a BOE member about my concerns, and as far as I know, nothing has been done...I do encourage parents and family members with concerns to contact Mike Queen, the more things that they know, maybe something will be done.

I have heard bad things about him and there has been times when I have heard him be rude to parents! I also think he really needs to do something about the bullying. I really don't like the mean seceratary she is very rude and there has been times when people have been in there and she has been on the phone and it was a personal call and she got rude or didn't respond to the person in there. It happened to me and I have heard it happened to other parents also.

I feel very sorry for the staff and students at Salem this year. The principal is rude to the teachers,except for a chosen few who are friends with his new "wife". He expects the kids to march down the hallway like little soldiers. I have heard some of the teachers tell the little kids 'nose to toes' What the hell? Are they robots or kids, for crying out loud? Parents are treated like dirt. That secretary has no people skills whatsoever. She is rude to anyone who calls on the phone or comes to pick up their kids. Salem deserves much better than what they got- a megamaniac with an ego the size of Texas and the people skills of a teaspoon,

I totally agree with WV Proud!! This school has went to the dogs since Mrs. Perkins & Mr. San Julian left!! I sure the heck hope this principal and secretary don't stay to long! I just wish he would grow up and stop acting like a child with saying I am the boss and you will do it my way! As for the secretary she thinks she runs the school and in a lot of ways he lets her and that shouldn't be either! The staff and parents are there for the kids and should all work together but with the things I see and hear that's not happening at all!!!!

I agree about the secretary what a rude person everyone I know that has kids there has said the same thing about her. I havent meet the new principle yet but I havent heard anything positive about him either. I think we need some new people woking with our kids.

I really really agree with parentof3!! We need new office staff! Our kids deserve so much better! This principal is a joke and the secretary is to. He lets her run the school and something needs to be done about it and it needs to be done fast!

I was there the other day and that secretary is a something else. I have never been treated so horrible in my life. This time I let it go but next time not only will she hear it but the principal and the board will. I will not but put with this shit. These are my kids not hers and no one will tell me when or what I can do with my kids. If she would have just said it nice it would be ok but to use that tone of voice and attitude with me, I don't think so. I have never talked to the principal yet but I sure hope he is much nicer then her.

I dont even have children who go to Salem Elementary,thank God! BUT I have went up there with my Aunt to pick up her kids and YES that secretary is rude as hell!! If that would have been me and she talked to me the way she did my Aunt she would have gotton told where to go!! I dont know about the new principal,havent gotton to meet him yet and from what I hear I probably dont want to. If the kids are being treated badly then yes something needs to be done. If enough parents call the Board complaining then maybe something will be done about it. If not then I would call the main Board office in Charleston. I guarantee you something will be done then!!!

I hear Susan Collins is best friends with the principal so that's why nothing is being done about it. I understand you being good friends but come on lady do your job. I know more then 1 person has complained.

I was just curious as to what he's done that is considered treating the kids badly? I have a child that goes up there but I've not really met him or had any trouble with him.

Everyone just keeps saying that he is rude. Like I said I've not really had any interaction with him but is everyone sure that his age is not really what bothers them.

His age doesn't bother me at all it's his attitude that does. He acts like he is better then everyone and that the school is all his and only he matter. But I got news it's about the kids and they are the only ones that matter!!!!!!!!!!

I know that the secretary is rude. Dealt with her before. Acts like its gonna kill her to pick up that phone to let the teacher know when you go to pick your child up early. Also I think that the dismissal routine is stupid. Not fun to stand out there forever. Really feel sorry for people who have no choice but to take their smaller children with them.
