Glen Giannetti Talks French Fries and Salary Size

Bloom Supt. Glen Giannetti answered tough questions from concerned residents and sixth graders.

Last week we asked Patch users and Facebook fans for Bloom Supt. Glen Giannetti.

We got several responses, some of which were from a group of sixth graders at Wilson Elementary School — thanks to their teacher Chris Baikauskas.

We decided to hit Glen with a mix of questions, ranging from the lunch menu to his per year salary. He was a good sport all the way through, answering every question we threw at him.

We would like to thank Winston Wolf, Michael Davis, Debbie Cladis, Betty, Carron Lolyd, Jada Kennedy, Javonte Slater, Darnell Robinson, Chino Johnson and Cindy Hensley Fonseca. You all asked great questions and we plan on sitting down with Glen again in the future to address the rest of your concerns.

Until then, enjoy the video and let us know what you think about his responses.

Just saying you will get something similar. Some people would say it's better. What about the inherent conflict of interest? Imagine if your kid and his kid tied for valedictorian. Try being the teacher who flunked his kid. Obviously, he is not going to join this conversation, as it just percolates conversation from people like us who aren't as busy. I guess he couldn't address everything and everybody's questions and concerns when he was limited by five questions asked by a sixth grade class. Maybe next year they can ask, but I thought somebody mentioned he will be teaching at a university soon. I guess we will have to kick around the new superintendent. I don't know about you, but when only two people remain in a site, it is probably time to see what's on television.

He sends his kids to a private school because he KNOWS Bloom is FAILING, the Administration doesn't care about the kids. And the school board allowed it to happen, which means they really dont care either. This interview made me nauseous.

Glenn is a liar, he has lied for many years. he has lied to parents and to the teachers that he rips off daily. Moral has dropped and fights among students are an everyday occurance. this school is unsafe. many teachers have been injured breaking up fights in the hallways. Just know he is a liar.

Someone can dart in here, say the most awful things about a person and a school, and dart out, and the damage is seemingly done. Let's analyze the above. Where is the proof? Given the grammar and spelling, and based on that alone (what else do you have to go on?), would you trust this person? Does this person's turn of phrase suggest a superior education? I have been in both Bloom and Bloom Trail and what is utterly amazing is how tranquil both schools are. Does it have an occasional fight? Yes. What school doesn't? Given that Giannetti had a strict upbringing from an ex-Marine, taught at Bloom, went on to be dean, assistant principal, assistant superintendent, and then superintendent, I would suggest that anyone reading the above weigh this proof of character and experience against any baseless, poorly written rant by someone using a fake name.

"Saving" all that money by not hiring the teachers back, so he can have his 6 figure income, cost me my AP classes. My senior year they pulled the classes and I lost a great opportunity at the time.
