This distric needs to revamp its art department. First on the list: Get rid of Heather Papandrea. She's awful at teaching art. Too busy on her high horse. Not to mention her other issues. I hope my kids get Mr. Cost.
Obviously you don't know her at all or how great of a teacher she is. The only other "issues" she has are parents like you. Hopefully your kid can spell better than you. District ends with a t.

Pardon me for not hitting the 't' key.

She is NOT a great teacher. She is under qualified. She is moody. She is snotty. Her students pay dearly if she is in a bad mood. If she had a good night, they have a good day. If she had a bad night, she comes to work miserable. More than one student has said this. I met her. I find her to be arrogant to say the least. Like I said, I hope my kids get Mr. Cost.

Maybe your kid is the problem.

Well you sound exactly like the type of parent I would want if I was a teenager. It would have been great to have my parents take everything I said as gospel, unfortunately for me they didnt, and fortunately for your kids, you just believe everything your little darling and his/her friends say. Heres a hint, next time your kid says they are going to a sleepover at a friends house to study, it probably isnt true. You are welcome.
I would venture to guess that you are an overweight house frow that your spouse ignores and are probably jealous of an attractive teacher that you have dealt with.

Well "Idiot", you have chosen a good name for yourself. Overweight house frow? Hardly. My husband of 24 years and I run marathons, and we'll run circles around you. My kids are honor students and play 2 sports each. They aren't whiners. Blah, blah, blah...say what you want. I STILL don't want my kids to be taught by Mrs. Pap.

You have to be kidding me, your worried about an ART class. I guarantee your kids have no respect for you. What's next you going to bitch about the hall monitors?
Wow

Anyone who raises their kids in Whitesboro schools NY and a primary interest in sports accomplishments needs to be committed or ridiculed. Good luck with the future jailers or babymommas!

To the person who thought it was ridiculous to worry about an ART class: why wouldn't you want to expose your kids to positive cultural influences, whether art, literature or music? It opens up their worlds. When they go to NYC as adults to see a Yankees game, they might also visit the Metropolitan and see the most amazing room filled with just Monets...they're breathtaking. In other words, they might grow into the kind of adults who realize there's more to life than field days and Varick St.

If your looking for cultural influences and need a high school art teacher to teach you I would stick to field days.

i know all about that. I still prefer him over Mrs. Pap.

What's really sad is that I probably know who you are or at least probably had your kids in school and you sit here on Topix and talk about an educator in this fashion. I would love to tell you to your face that you have absolutely no class. Why not actually be productive and speak directly to the hs admin and request to have Cost. You have a personal issue with Papandrea than fine, but your the one showing your true character hiding behind a keyboard.

I have met and spoken with Mrs. Papandrea. I knew right away that I did not care for her. I didn't like the way she came across. I also feel, and i have my reasons, that she is not a great art teacher. I HAVE asked for Mr. Cost. Hopefully that request will be granted. Thank you for your concern.

Are you a teacher? You don't know the difference between 'than' and 'then' and 'your' and 'you're' "You have a personal issue with Papandrea THEN fine, but YOU'RE the one showing your true character hiding behind a keyboard." If you're a teacher, how very sad for the kids. Btw, you're hiding behind a keyboard, too.

If your big problem for the year is what art teacher your kids get, count your blessings. You all sound petty to me.

Agreed. She wreaks of the entitlement attitude also. She could just try teaching her kids that life isn't always fair, and sometimes you have to suck it up and deal with it. That would be a better life lesson than Mommy taking up for you every time you're not happy about something.

It is a high school lady get over it! If you want your kid to do big things with art, pay and send him to classes at Munson Williams. You don't hear people saying crap about the gym teachers not teaching their daughters a floor routine. If they want them to be good in gymnastics they pay and gesend them to Valley Gymnastics. Seriously, is your last name Picasso? If so I understand......if not, I would be more worried about math, english etc. BTW.....Heather, you are smoking hot.....that is why this person probably doesn't like you!!!!!!!!!!
