When I was in grade 7, I was singled out every day for 4 months, to the point where I begged my parents not to send me back to the school, I would sob almost every day and feel sick at the thought of going back to a school with a borderline mentally abusive teacher and no support. I became depressed and had suicidal thoughts. Because of this, I strongly believe that teachers and school staff should all be monitored more closely on what they’re doing in their classroom. After I left the school, this teacher had many complaints against him, yet they were not taken seriously, and he continued to teach for 2 years at that school. I was blamed for my lack of attendance, and there were no repercussions against my teacher.
