My last post was about the fact that I am a teacher. I am entrusted with the lives of others. it is my moral and ethical obligation to provide the best guidance that I can in the best manner that I can. I was bullied by a principal. Two of my three sons were bullied by teachers. I say enough! I was invited to appear on America Now News, a syndicated TV show, to talk about what to do when the bully is the teacher!!
I said yes! I asked fellow educators to send me some of their horror stories as well, and let me tell you, I was shocked by what I heard. Teachers, so sadly, can be bullies. Teachers are not all perfect. We, at times, protect the bad guys. As a teacher, I felt that I needed to stand up to the bullies. Will some teachers be angry that I spoke up about this situation? Maybe, but they are the teachers about whom I do not care.
I care about students – of all ages. I care about my profession. I care about equality. I care about standing up and saying, “No more.”
