Ernest Borgnine's character in "From here to Eternity" comes to mind.
I think you all judge her unfairly. My my '87 class was her 1st year in FDR and although she was stern, was not mean at all. Unfortunately she needed to "parent" some of the students, but she did her job and did it well.
she was harsh and everything but i actually loved it... when she was in fdr the school was nice and quite but now with the new principal she acts all harsh but the school gets worse...the freshman especially..
Vocel was... how do I put this? MEAN!! I swear she would run around the auditorium and take baseball caps off PARENT'S heads during preformances, then try to keep them! However she did make sure you knew the score w/her.
Yes, the rumors are true. I was snooping around Freshman Orientation when they introduced the new principal Ms. Maione. Vocel was mean, but I liked her.
she was the attendance cord at bryant in the early 70's...she was always nice to me...say hello...smiling...it's not easy being principal
I hear she's pretty mean, but atleast she keeps the school campus beautiful and in-order. Too many potsmokers/slackers in the school and she keeps them disciplined.
She is really Benny Hill minus the accent and the humor
My principle, Ms. Vocel, is very strict. But if she wasn't, then the school would be out of control. F.D.R. is like the only HS in that part of Brooklyn with no metal detectors.
How come she never teaches a class? Cause she can't meet her own standards.
adel vocel is an education no-sell. all talk but no substance.
RUNS THE SCHOOL LIKE RIKERS ISLAND ... BUT IT'S ALL FOR THE BEST BECAUSE IF SHE WASN'T HOW SHE IS THE SCHOOL WOULD BE CHAOTIC
well ms vocele is like dr jekyll n mr hyde but as some1 said b4 imagine shes not strict, the school would get really bad..
i know she is very strict but it is the way it should be. she should be like that because if she hasnt, the school can be unsafe.
as a graduate, i can honestly say despite her tyrant ways she keeps the school running pretty smoothy...look around u, things arent so dandy out there..THINK
MISS........ WHY DON'T YOU CHANGE YOUR WAY OF DOING THIS ONCE IN A WHILE?
She isnt so scarry, but she is very strict and thats good. but needs to lighten up on the students.
Funny how the people who criticize her most seem to be the most illiterate.
i don't really know her but FDR because pretty good with her
I know she is a caring and excellant principal. FDR wouldn't be a great school without Ms. Vocel's. Thank you for the superb job. Well done!!
She might be mean , but she keeps law and order in FDR.
She might be mean but she kepps our school in line and the reason that teahcers dont like her is because she catches them when they are not doing their job.
she si strict and not very nice to the teachers but she keeps the school in good condition and safe.
I had the misfortune of meeting her; fortunately, it was only once during freshman orientation. I have heard that whoever sees her eyes turns to stone...
She is mean, strict and gets the job done. With her around I never felt safer in school
she is mean!!!! the aticle in the newspaper explained less than 3/4 of how horrible she is. But she did show a lot of compassion on sept. 11. her speech shocked me ( cant she be that nice a little more often?)
yea she is mean but as a kid who got suspended i no she just doing her job.the reason everybody hates her is cause she mean.this is true but she just trying to enforce the rules.but she can b a little nicer.
Ms.Vocel is doing what any principal would do however the way she is going about it may not be cool but at least our school has order. It could have been worse we could of had the same principal that Tilden H.S has!
Ms. Vocel is not in the classroom -- she is an administrator.
Ms. Vocell is good, because she keeps school in better shape. Whithout her the school would be, not a school.
