Get the facts and stop your middle school hardcore bullies!
Documentation is the key to stopping middle school bullying!
The more data you have, the more successful you will be.
For hardcore bullies, I enlist the help of the team of teachers that has that student currently. I attend one of their team meetings and ask them to document any bullying they see or hear from this particular bully.
One teacher, who did not have this particular bully, heard him telling a girl in the hallway that she was fat. She walked out in the hall and asked him to stop. She then reported the incident to her team. At that meeting, I asked the 8th grade teachers to write down any bullying incidents they observe or intervene in and give them to me.
When submitting these facts, I submit facts I have from past years on this student. In my opinion, bullies do not start the school year with a clean slate unless they have changed.
These incidents from a variety of adults are complied on index cards. When I have enough documentation, I present the cards to the administration to take the appropriate action.
Then, we start all over again.
Why?
Because it takes more than one time to stop a hardcore bully. In our school if the bully does not stop after several office referrals, they are removed from the general student population.
So, get the facts! And stop your hardcore middle school bullies!
