The highly paid Carranza DOE exec will leave NYC for Texas



The highly paid Carranza DOE exec will leave NYC for Texas

One of the chief executive offices of Richard Carranza, which amounts to nine dollars 209,000 dollars per year, is a supervisor, The Post has learned.

Andre D. Spencer, 49, has been named the sole finalist to lead the school system in Manor, Tex., A suburb of Austin, and is expected to begin on July 1, Manor spokesman Angel Vidal told The Post. Spencer oversees schools and supervisors in southern Queens, including districts 27, 28 and 29.

Carranza’s second commander, First Deputy Chancellor Cheryl Watson-Harris, also sought work amid DOE’s struggle with the corona virus, planning to reopen schools and financial crises throughout the city.

He is a finalist for school supervisors in Sarasota, Florida, but withdrew the application on Thursday, the same day Chalkbeat reported it.

Carranza wrote one recommendation letter, viz posted online along with a cover letter and resume.

Some insiders say that Carranza and Watson-Harris – who were once seen as heirs to become the next NYC chancellor – have fallen.

Ministry of Education spokeswoman Miranda Barbot denied that the chancellor wanted her out.

“Cheryl told the chancellor of his intention to pursue opportunities outside the city in December, before the pandemic. “He wrote a letter of recommendation to him at the time because he believed in his ability to lead, and he fully supported him in his efforts,” Barbot said in a statement to The Post.

As soon as Carranza arrived in New York, he promoted Watson-Harris and created nine executive supervisory positions, adding a new layer of DOE bureaucracy.

The $ 200,000-plus annual position raised questions last month after Mayor de Blasio announced a $ 827 million DOE budget cut.

Spencer previously worked in Colorado, Baltimore, and Houston, where Carranza went as a school superintendent in early 2018 when he was employed by de Blasio.

DOE will not say whether it will replace Spencer. A recruitment freeze was ordered on April 1.

The DOE will also not say whether it will replace executive supervisor for Manhattan, Recy Benjamin Dunn, who was promoted to chief strategy officer at the Field Support Office under Watson-Harris. Dunn received a raise to $ 213,976, and a staff member from 17.

“No decision was made,” spokeswoman Miranda Barbot said.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
