TUSD: Remove Wanda Hirsch Principal Andrea Silva

    1. Wanda Hirsch Community
    2. Petition by

      Wanda Hirsch Community

      Tracy, CA

We the undersigned current and former Students, Teachers, Parents, Guardians, Family and Friends of Wanda Hirsch Elementary School petition TUSD Dr. James Franco, TUSD Board of Trustees and the California Board of Education to remove Andrea Silva from her administrative position as Principal of Wanda Hirsch Elementary School.

Andrea Silva continues to abuse the power of her assigned administrative position through discriminating, intimidating, bullying, harassing and retaliating. There have been numerous informal and formal complaints made to District Personnel that have yielded no positive change. Hirsch was once a vibrant community where Parents looked forward to volunteering, Teachers were motivated to Teach and Students were inspired to learn. Andrea Silva has devastated Hirsch's morale. The theme of all Andrea Silva's actions continue to create a hostile work environment for Teachers, Janitorial Staff, Substitute Aides, Students, Parents and Volunteers. IT’S TIME TO HEAL HIRSCH! 

TUSD continues to ignore our pleas. TOGETHER we can reestablish the family like atmosphere and positive moral that Hirsch was once loved and respected for. TOGETHER we can recreate a welcoming and inspiring educational environment, where hostility doesn’t limit our children’s potential for success. TOGETHER we petition to remove Andrea Silva as Principal, where she can no longer abuse the power of her administrative position. TOGETHER we take away Andrea Silva’s power to inflict fear and harm others. TOGETHER we won’t have to fear losing any of our beloved Hirsch Teachers who are considering leaving or requesting transfers because they can no longer teach in such hostile working conditions. TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE CHANGE!

TUSD: Monthly Board Meeting Tuesday, March 11th at 7pm. We encourage anyone available to attend. 

PLEASE SUPPORT & SIGN THE PETITION

Every Individual Signature Counts!

      My son was left outside after recess, when i brought to Mrs. Silva. She immediately passed the blame to another person and made up all kinds of "possible scenarios" that could have happened. Not once was she concerned about my child's well being. When i had asked if there were protocols, such as head counts before they go back to class, she responded; "If we had protocols like that, we would have all kinds of kids missing! Kids have dentist appointments, Dr. appointments, kids get set to the office, etc. So no we do not." I think a parent should know if their kid was unaccounted for or at least have the teacher call the office and see if the child has went home. I have recently have witnessed Mrs. Silva harassing my son's aids and making threats to them. My son's Aids have requested to no longer work at this school due to the severity of her harassment. Now my son loses 2 amazing people in his life, that were actually helping him at this school and who cared about his education and well being.
