Teacher Faith Perry From Mohonasen School Takes A Stand Against Bullying In A Very Creative Way

Her name is Faith Perry.  She is an alternative education teacher at Mohonasen school. If this story doesn’t make you think twice about dissing today’s teachers, nothing will.   A very grateful former classmate, Kevin March, alerted us to this story, and I just HAD to pass it on.  In fact, rather than me trying to paraphrase this, I asked Faith to tell us in her own words the very creative way that she is trying to drive home the message that bullying is very, very wrong!

” I had a student who was being bullied last year because he wore the same clothes two days in a row. I intervened and said I did not see what the problem was and that I would where the same outfit for the rest of the year. That is does not and should not matter what someone wears or looks like on the outside, but it is what is on the inside that matters. A person’s character, actions, and treatment of others are what is important.  (continued below)

This year I decided I was going to continue my stand against bullying so I wear the same outfit to school every day to send the message that it does not matter what I wear, it is who I am inside and how I teach and treat my students. I will continue to do this every year and wear a new outfit all year long. I want my students to see that it should not matter what I wear but how I act, care and teach. However, I do also talk to them about the importance of being clean and professional. I have to have good hygiene and wash my outfit every other day if not daily because I am a professional.

 

What more can I say here?  What a fantastic effort on her part, and we here at the Sean and Richie Show applaud her efforts.
