  1. As a senior in high school, 36 years ago, I was a cheerleader. At one of the basketball games I was cheering at, a group of boys from my circle of supposed friends starting chanting some insults at me. I knew they were directed at me, but I pretended to not hear them, the whole while wanting to vomit right there. To this day, I’ve never told anyone that specific story because I still feel the embarrassment when I think about it. That’s what made me decide that when I became a high school teacher to do everything in my powers to stop bullying. If nothing else, I didn’t allow it in my room, and students knew it! I am retired but continue to work in this area. That’s why I started my blog and still work in the high school I taught at for 31 years.
