By Teachers, For Teachers
Bullying is one of the most difficult experiences for students to overcome. Over 50% of students have experienced verbal and/or social bullying, whether they were the victims or the bullies themselves. The feelings of insecurity, the overwhelming emotions and the daily fear of walking into school can be extremely tough on students of all ages. But there is hope. There is help. Bullied students can overcome their tormentors' verbal and physical assaults. Bullies and witnesses are also negatively affected by the act of bullying. The effects of bullying are discouraging across the board. You can be an ally to all students by promoting a bully-free classroom.
