What the Expert Says:

Take a written statement from your child including details of exactly what the teacher has said/done. Then set up a meeting with the teacher. Share the statement with the teacher. LISTEN to what the teacher says in response to your child's words. The objective of the meeting is to tell the teacher know that you are now aware of your child's feelings about being in this class. A second objective is to hear what the teacher has to say about your child's assertions of "teacher is a bully." If he/she invalidates the accuracy of your child's statement or if, in any way the teacher gets defensive about the accusation, stay CALM. Give the teacher the benefit of the doubt. Be respectful and reaffirm that you expect him/her to treat your child (and all the children) with respect. If your child continues to tell you about negative teacher behavior, set up a meeting with the principal.

Write a note to the teacher about how your child feels. If he or she does not stop send a note to the principal or set up a meeting. You can always talk with the school counseling. Someone will stop it. Hope this helped:)

First. If you are the victim, i would bring it up to the school psychologist/ huidance councelor. Then if all else fails, conduct a police report for Harassment or assult and battery. (Depends on the situation) If you are the parent, contact the school's superintendant and then make sure that the situation is on file.

This is a difficult situation. I have seen teachers who are bullies. Schools too often look the other way when they have a bullying teacher - they say things like "Mrs. Smith is a tough taskmaster" but that's code for Mrs. Smith is mean and bullies the kids.
I wish I had a good answer for you. I worked with two bullying teachers - both had emotional issues of their own and took those issues out on their students. Neither was fired and both should have been.
