Meg Quitting Clarkstown

 
To Lead Elmwood Franklin School In Buffalo

“In the six years I have been in Clarkstown, it has been my privilege to work alongside a gifted staff on behalf of talented and exceptional young people. I am so very grateful for the opportunities I have been given and the support I have received.” ~~ Meg Keller-Cogan (Source)

She is becoming the head mistress for a small private school about the size of one of the parochial schools in and around Rochester. (Tuition is a little higher at 15 grand). Can she take her retirement and pension from NY state as well as work there? Nice retirement job to keep her busy and away from the requirements of state regulations. Not to mention she is free from having to worry about teacher unions and tenured staff.

Who cares?

SCATS said...

To 4:50PM ~~ The people who notified me about this event care. Any more questions??

Well the people who notified you already knew...the general populace apparently doesn't (as evidenced by the "you-me" conversation going on here. We live in Greece. We care about the here and now, not the ghosts from school superintendents past. Use the blog space for pertinent, relevant, and meaningful discussion -- that affects GREECE. Doing otherwise makes you look, well, petty. Oh wait......

Guess what 12:09PM? Wrong again! I just checked and 168 people have viewed this page according to Google's stats. That's in addition to the 250+ people who likely read about it on my Facebook post. Minimizing SCATS doesn't pay ;)

Viewing it and caring enough to comment are two different things. I commented only to state the obvious...no one really cares.

SCATS said...

To 7:19PM ~~ It's a BLOG. It's for reading. Leaving comments is secondary. The fact that people had to MAKE THE EFFORT to click the link shows me they ARE interested.

I love mind-readers like you. They make everyone else look more intelligent :)

BLOGS cease to exist if people only read and don't comment....because if people aren't commenting there's nothing to read.

blog/blôg/Noun: A Web site on which an individual or group of users record opinions, information, etc. on a regular basis.
Verb: Add new material to or regularly update a blog.

You see, SCATS, it isn't mindreading...it's common sense. :)

SCATS said...

To 8:25AM ~~ Again, you are WRONG! SCATS is the "individual" who updates, adds new material, etc. on a regular basis. There is NO NEED TO RECORD OTHER'S INPUT ... AT ALL!

By the way, YOUR COMMENTS on this topic keep landing in the BLOG's SPAM folder! lol There IS justice through Karma :)

You might be interested to know that several new "Friend Requests" were received again over the weekend.

I love baiting you. You take it every single time. :)

Group of users....ahem, that doesn't mean just SCATS, the self proclaimed knower of all.

You're right - there is no need to record other's input at all. Try that for a week or so and see how much traffic you get and then come back and we'll debate some more.

SCATS said...

To 11:30AM ~~ When you "bait" someone with obvious screw-ups, doesn't that make YOU look bad? I think so! Thanks for helping me improve my image :D

Actually, since I was tied up with other things recently, the BLOG was essentially put on hold for about 10 days or so. There really wasn't much impact on the stats. I know you'd love for SCATS to go away. It's been 6+ years. Shouldn't you just get used to it already??

Have NO desire for SCATS to go away...where did I say that? I find it very informative and helpful. I like hearing various opinions on topics of relevance to our district. I just would like it focused on the here and now issues of Greece. If you read back, that's what I said initially. Not everyone is all that bothered by you, SCATS, even though you seem to pride yourself on getting under people's skin. That's misguided since, overall, the information highway that results from SCATS presence is very helpful and appreciated.

SCATS said...

To 10:45AM ~~ That's downright hospitable of you to say! lol

Of course, you want it focused on what YOU like. Others like keeping up on people from the past. After 6 yrs. I see this BLOG as an archives of sorts. Telling folks what happened next gives those who read about someone from our past an idea of where to look for the next chapter. I can tell from the stats what stories are viewed most in a day, a week, a month or ever. I can often see when something is going on in Meg's or Walts old districts based on the number of pageviews of older BLOGs get logged.

As for getting under people's skin ... it's so damned easy to do because this is Greece, the Dysfunction Junction of Monroe County. NOBODY SCREWS IT UP LIKE WE DO. Pointing out what they did or didn't do "gets under their skin."

In less than 8 months, Meg Keller-Cogan has destroyed the Elmwood Franklin School in Buffalo. Parents are at war with each other, faculty is 100% in extreme opposition to her, 4 board members have resigned and 3 administrators were fired last Friday. She leaves a shitstorm everywhere she goes.

To 3:37PM ~~ Sorry to hear that, but her past precedes her for those who research her online.
