Breaking Free of Bullying began when my own career as a teacher was threatened after twenty years of loyal service, by a boss who deemed me as an unprofessional teacher and who felt my job performance was unsatisfactory after only two years as principal. I began to feel targeted when I was constantly asked to come into the office for discussions that had to do with “complaints” from parents and staff members. The principal at that time was using me as a scapegoat to further her own agenda of climbing the corporate ladder to the district office. I was an easy target because I was an outspoken educator who fought for injustices as a union representative.

Through the use of mindfulness education (ME), this book will allow you to write out your feelings, ideas, and imaginary details.
