Teachers that Bully, by Traci Poe

A couple of hours ago, I was watching the Voice and one of the contestants said that she had been bullied in high school, but not by other students. Instead, she had been bullied by teachers.

The sad truth is that over the last several years, I have heard of some teachers doing just that, bullying students. My kids have experienced it first hand, as well as witnessing it happening to their classmates. I've had their friends tell me stories. I've had parents tell me stories.

I love my teacher friends and can't imagine any of them doing this, but it seems that more and more teachers are saying and doing some very mean things to their students. It also seems, in some cases, administration turns their head and refuses to deal with it.

If you are a teacher that actually cares about your students, stand your ground! You are making a difference in the lives of kids who have other teachers ripping them apart. If you are a teacher who builds up your students, who wants them to succeed, who is their cheerleader, I am a mom who says, "THANK YOU!!! Please don't stop!"
