I taught at this school when Dolores Nethersole was principal. She ran that school like a top. Ed Zimmerman was a real piece of work, but Dolores Nethersole was the BEST principal EVER. Anne Cohen is a disappointment. Even Kindergarten teacher Michelle Sparro (a 147 institution) was run out by Cohen. It's sad what this school has become.

I went to P.S 147 in 1997 - it was the best damn time school I've ever waked into as a kid because they had the Best Principal,Best Teachers , Best staff, even the staff that really never was talked about- in those time NO ONE wanted To GO HOME - Mrs. Dolores Nethersole made her second home Home for us. I still think about those times because I got to be a student in their humble grounds. There are no words to describe the joy that school brought.

I went to this school when it was just P.S.147...I was also a student when the name was changed tomHonor Dr.Ronald E McNair. I remember Mrs.Net hersole. Wow she was a heck of a lady. We thought she had eyes behind her head and cameras in every room. Of course we were all very young then, we thought she knew magic or something, the way she wa always on point.
