“Rubber Room” is the nickname that was given to enormous rooms, around NYC, where teachers were reassigned to pending investigations. I want to come out and sadly say that I too believed, before I was a teacher, that these people should be “fired” and not sit and collect our tax dollars. Wow, I feel horrible and am sorry. I felt this ideology was wrong before I was sent to one. How could I ever imagine that there was a modern day Salem Witch Trial in progress within education. What about the students?

In 2010 they “supposedly” closed down all these so called Rubber Rooms:


They are now scattered around the city where reassigned educators are placed along with Children First Network office personnel. 6 people could be in an elevator, going to different floors, and no one would know who is who and how many of the 6 are Rubber Room teachers. Brilliant idea. My hats off to you! Brilliant!

According to DOE officials there are currently 220+ reassigned teachers. All of them start of on the 12th floor 51 Chambers Street. Also known as the Rubber Hub. They are urged to comment below and share their experiences.

Here is a list that we are forming.

Location: 8201 Rockaway Blvd. Queens, NY    Approximately 13. Longest one there from January.

Location: 4360 Broadway in Manhattan. As of end of June, 2 were sitting, including an AP.

This network office is located in PS 48. Ironic how those deemed “dangerous” to schools and students are mingling with such.”

  1. 131 Livingston Street

    5600 Flatlands Avenue (this use to be the Region 6 office). It’s open again, and where the infamous Erin Sayer is sitting.

  2. Yeah, ya know once your “excessed’ you’re never the same – and then you’re being jerked around and being kept in the dark. Some gig huh?
