Amy Mullen has been a special education teacher in Tiverton Public Schools for 25 years. She is widely considered to be an excellent classroom teacher by parents and peers alike. Amy has also been the president of the local Tiverton teachers union for the last 20 years.

When the COVID-19 crisis struck, Amy demanded that teachers have a voice at the table while discussing implementation of distance learning. She was denied by bully Superintendent Peter Sanchioni – but she persisted.

Then, Peter Sanchioni unconstitutionally fired her.

Was she a poor teacher? No.

Uncooperative when counseled about deficiencies? No.

Unprofessional in her preparations for class? No.

Sanchioni fired her for speaking out.

Amy Mullen has a long record of being a hard-working, dedicated school teacher and union leader who fights for her members.

Peter Sanchioni has a long record of being a bully.

Sanchioni, as Superintendent of schools in Natick, MA, berated the mother of a boy who had committed suicide – accusing her of telling “unfettered lies” at a Natick School Committee meeting.

Sanchioni’s efforts to quash criticism resulted in a lawsuit, prompted by Sanchioni’s repeated efforts to silence this grieving mother. The lawsuit resulted in more than $240,000 in legal fees paid by Town taxpayers.

During one six-month period of Sanchioni’s tenure in 2018, the Natick School Committee was found to have violated the Open Meetings law more than 200 times.

Last year in Tiverton, Sanchioni issued a gag order similar to the one he issued this year, forcing the Union to file a charge with the R.I. State Labor Relations Board, who, in turn, issued a complaint. This year, the Union, on Amy’s behalf, sought redress in Federal Court.  And following a brief hearing, the Court forced Sanchioni to rescind his gag order.

If you are as outraged as we are, take action now.
