In the 5th grade, I was starting to get scared about going into Middle School. Because of me being scared, I was very emotional (I still am even though I'm not that scared of anything). At the beginning of the year I thought it would be fun because I had friends in the class and I thought that the person I sat next to would be really sweet. I was so wrong. I had very few people talk to me because whenever they did something and the teacher asked, I would tell the truth about it. Also the girl I sat next to happened to be the angriest girl in class. If I happen to turn the way she sat, she would start yelling at me and start yelling at me saying that I was cheating on a quiz or that I was looking at her funny. I felt so bad all through 5th grade and even though my teacher and parents helped a little, I still felt like I was bullied really badly.

I’m wondering what grade you are in now and if there have been any discussions at your school about bullying? We can help you approach your school if there has not been. —Marianne for the Bully project.
