My days of being bullied are long behind me but some things you do not forget. I was a spoiled, friendly, talkative short attention span type when my parent placed me in a boarding school in a foreign country when I was in 8th grade. I spoke only English and my peers did not. I spent the next for years being bullied and chased up and down hallways. I mainly remember being terrified and making cheat calendars marking off the days to I could get home. I survived and now teach and watch others being bullied. What should teachers do? It is a dangerous trap. If we interfere it only separates the victim more. Any suggestions? How did others cope?
