What Every Target of Workplace Bullying Needs to Know

Bullying in Schools

by Diana

I have worked for a while in a school, when a parent complained about me to management about me being rude to her. When the office manager told me this she refused to tell me what I had said and yet to this day will not tell me why I was so rude.

A few years ago some parents made up a rumour about me saying things about the manager which I had no idea about until a close friend of mine had told me. They - management seem not to tell me anything that goes on and criticise me every so often it cheeses me off.

With the latest drama I still am worried and having panic attacks of what will happen each day when I go to work. Management avoid talking to me unless necessary, and always seem to back up parents and not their staff.

I was hired by a superintendent who later died. The day he died I looked at my husband and said "Now the principal will come after me." I don't know what happened during my hiring but usually the principal calls to tell you but not in my case. I always felt something happened... I am southern and female... I taught 9yrs before moving to Iowa. People at work commented all the time about my accent. When i would suggest something they ignored me but 5 minutes later the same comment could come out of a certain teachers mouth and the idea was great. I worked there 9 years... the last 4 were horrible... the principal made up stories and twisted others... I had said she would try to take me out... she retired... but I was so upset that I quit teaching.
