 Almost one thousand.  

 

Almost one thousand. That's the number of individuals who took  a look at A Piece Full World in November.  They read two thousand nine hundred and ninety two pages.  Some spent more than an hour perusing A Piece Full World.  


They're looking for help, answers, understanding.  They're looking also for companionship, for to BE a bullied educator is to FEEL alone, isolated, emotionally distraught and scared.

I hope A Piece Full World helps.  I hope it at least gives relief to bullied educators. I hope they now know they are not the only ones suffering from bullying school leaders.

A Piece Full World's search phrases include:

"What to do when a principal lies."

"My principal is out to get me."

"What to do when the principal is a bully."

"I am scared of my principal."

I like this one:

"I stood up to my bully principal."

Altered.  That's a word I'd use to describe me.  Wouldn't say smarter.  Nor wiser,  I'm neither of those things.  Sadly, I'm not much of anything more positively different than I was before becoming a bullied educator. I am warier and more careful.  

I am less of lots of things I'd thought made up the "mee-i-est" of me.  I am a whole lot less trusting--even though trust's laughter bubbles out of me "de temps en temps..." 

I am, though, more drugged.  I take Prozac for anxiety and Metoprolol for anxiety induced high blood pressure. I sometimes resort to Klonopin for sleep.  

I'm better now.  Finding a renewed energy for A Piece Full World. Understanding my responsibility to other bullied educators. I'd turned away for a few years from A Piece Full World's weekly writing. I felt better.  The bursting need to tell my story had dissipated.  Or so I thought.  But I now know that mine is not a story with a clean, "learned my lesson" ending. It's a story that "keeps on giving..." Four years ago three more of my bully's targets contacted me.  Two years ago my friend died in my bully's office.  

Here's you some "more." I'm more educated on the topic of workplace bullying in schools.  More committed to help others through A Piece Full World. 

Here's some "more":

A search phrase.  This one from this month:

"How to sue bully principal boss and win."
