For your Irish coffees
(Update 12:30 p.m.) Milosky did not appear in court this morning. However, her attorney reportedly entered a not guilty plea on her behalf. Her attorney told reporters that Milosky still has a valid driver's license and is awaiting a hearing with the DMV.

Sheila Sammon Milosky, the embattled Paul Revere Elementary School principal, is kicking off her not-so-relaxing summer vacation in court.

Milosky is scheduled to appear in front of a San Francisco Superior Court judge today to answer to misdemeanor charges in connection to a May 12 incident where she allegedly got behind the wheel after having way too much to drink, and sideswiped several cars before fleeing the scene.

The 50-year-old Mill Valley resident was allegedly in her white 2011 Dodge Avenger, which had Colorado plates, when she hit a Hyundai Tucson and a Lincoln Town Car just south of the Golden Gate Bridge. She drove off, but CHP officers caught up to her, and discovered her blood alcohol content was well above the legal limit of .08, according to police.

Yes, this is the same Milosky who came under fire last year after parents and kids accused her of using corporal punishment and heavy-handed policies at Paul Revere Elementary School in Bernal Heights. Parents complained that she limited bathroom breaks and kids were wetting their pants.

Those same parents demanded that Milosky -- who was the new principal -- be removed from her post, and went as far as to circulate a petition.

Milosky denied those charges, but will she deny these?

Oh! Milosky has drawn a bad image out of herself. For some reason, there are times when we cannot avoid these circumstances for we are only human beings, who tend to commit mistakes. But I'm sure she will learn from it and move on with her life.


What's wrong with the Mill Valley parents, PTA and school district?  Ms Milosky  has exhibited a terrible example to the children and community of Mill Valley.  This former long time Marin resident remembers when Mill Valley had a back bone.


you guys can have her back, if you want.
