Tell A Teacher You Trust At School

Posted: 10/18/2011

Hi all - I'm a high school math teacher, and I was bullied often in middle school, mostly because I cared more about success and my grades than being popular. I remember coming home from school crying to my mom because someone wrote For a good time, call (my phone number) inside a bathroom stall - in the GIRL'S bathroom! With the help of some great teachers, my true friends, and family, I grew up to be proud of the person that I am, and to not let what other people say hurt me. Music and theatre was my outlet and I found acceptance there. Now I am married to an amazing man and have wonderful friends who love me for me - especially for my dorky and weird side! Just want to encourage anyone who feels bullied to TELL A TEACHER YOU TRUST AT SCHOOL! I would hate to know that I could have helped one of my students in an awful situation and not have the opportunity - although we look for signs of bullying there is so much we don't see.
