She is the worst boss that I have ever had the displeasure of working for. It's been several years since I had to work for her, but I still hate her so much that the mere mention of her name makes me swear and wish her ill. She was grossly unqualified for the position as director of school improvement (her background is music, then she worked in instructional resources), but that wasn't as much of an issue as her personal and management style. Where to start? She was rude and condescending. She had a tendency to talk down to you, including interrupting you while you were speaking, holding up her hand to quiet you and saying "ok, pause" whenever you were advising her on something that she didn't agree with. She didn't give clear directions and then was rude and insulting when you'd either ask for more clarifying information or didn't do the assignment as she wanted. Feedback was nonconstructive and felt punitive. She asked her staff to spy on each other and acted on those rumors, even when you could prove the claim was demonstrably false. She would talk about not working in isolated silos, then turn around and forbid you from helping a coworker. I have never worked with someone whose actions were as disconnected from their words as she. If you currently work for this unpleasantness, please know you are not alone. Almost everyone who had to work under her still hates her guts. Unfortunately, she is the type of person who will continue to fail upwards so I wouldn't burn any bridges. If you can stand doing it, she responds well to flattery and most types of brown-nosing - it may make things more tolerable for you. And if you need some dark kind of relief and a laugh, look up "Lindsay Weiss" (maiden name) on "Rate My Professor.com". Her teaching style was apparently the same as her management style, lol.
