One interesting character trait that is coming out as a result of the purges that have occured with students and teachers is some seems to be a mixture of meanness and vindictiveness. More interestingly are the results.
We've had schools call back to the principal for input as to students who have left, perhaps when the parents and Denise have not always seen eye to eye. She has refused to give any recommendation or characterization of the student, using the excuse she didn't know the students well enough. While theoretically possibly true, it blows the mind that a principal couldn't defer this to another staff member who COULD give such a recommendation. It also bewilders the asking school, who find it hard to believe that any principal would admit to such a lack of knowledge.
Schools have called on other personnel matters, getting equally odd answers. Refusing to give a recommendation is one thing, but implying dark things is another. Fortunately, the calling schools ignored her comments, but later got clarification on some of the goings on at the school...spreading her Denise's fame even further.
