New York Teacher Accused of Taking Dive To Avoid Evaluation

Ilene Feldman, a teacher at the HS for Innovation in Advertising and Media is accused of taking the ultimate dive on camera at the school to avoid a classroom observation and possible termination as an untenured faculty member.

Feldman was allegedly videotaped staging a fall on the day of her scheduled visit. The school was suspicious because she had had a previous poor evaluation and was facing possible termination. The video reportedly shows her throwing herself down a school stairwell. Witnesses claim that Feldman is shown listening for anyone approaching to stage the fall: “Feldman, who then appeared to hear someone coming, grabbed her handbag with her right hand, held the railing with her left hand, and slowly fell to the 2nd floor landing,”

  1. Bad evaluation when doing her job, bad evaluation when not … she needs a new career path now that teaching and stunt-man are closed

  2. You slowly fall when you don’t wanna hurt yourself. This is in slow motion…I wonder if she was responsible for the production of the truck/man filming…Just sayin…..


    How are you doing, I agree with you and the saying goes, like this: Those who can do and those who can’t well, teach….

    Sorry professor….You are a person of many talents and talismans. I am sure, if 2.5 men had known about you they would have come for you to take the lead role…

  3. “… and slowly fell to the 2nd floor landing”

    I would love to see the video of this. How does somebody “slowly fall”?

  4. High School for Innovation in Advertising and Media? I suspect it was part of the “innovative” curriculum.
