What this teacher did to you was criminal. I don't understand how he is still teaching. How adults could know about his mistreatment of students and not bring the information to the authorities. This man is dangerous to ALL children he teaches. It doesn't matter that you had a crush on him; that's not uncommon. But that certainly doesn't invite him to take advantage of you. He was the adult. You were the child. He took advantage of your youth and your vulnerabilities. HE had all the power. And he continues to have all the power, Nicole, power that he is very likely using on other children he is supposed to teach. Please consider disclosing what he did to you to the authorities. At the very least, talk to someone about what you're dealing with. I urge you to contact Child Help at 1-800-4-A-CHILD (1-800-422-4453) in order to talk to someone about what you're dealing with. They are staffed 24/7 with professionally trained counsellors who will listen to you. They are not a reporting agency, although they can help you through the process of reporting if you decide to disclose the abuse. Visit their website by copying & pasting the following URL into your browser: http://www.childhelp.org/get_help

You didn't deserve to be mistreated, Nicole. You certainly deserve help for the fact that you were. I send you love, light and healing energy. Thank you for sharing your story with my visitors and me.

Very real

Hi Nicole.

please dont convinse yourself that things like this are part of normal growing up, thats not being fair to yourself. They are not. A crush maybe but the other things are too much. Trust your gut on this and follow your instincts. Im still working out my own teacher abuse. I shared on here my story of classroom abuse I received in elementary school. Feel free to read what happened to many of us in schools, and use the knowledge of my story and the comments of others to empower you to feel that you are not alone. These people, these so called teachers have and had way too much authority over children in my opinion. Im just now finding out the true identity of my abuser and getting close to having a photo of her and maybe to help bring back my lost memories. I dont know if it will help. I know that a class action was started here against staff at a home for colored kids and all was lost as there was (aledgedly) not anough evidence to move forward. I find this very hard as Im all alone and have no others for any class action. If they all lost what chance do I have. ..But Im doing this for me for my own peace of mind and healing. You are just doing the same and Im very proud of you. Good luck.

Sorry it's been so long since I've checked in on this site. I've been scared to return, just because I'm afraid he'll find me somehow. Anyway. Recently I brought it up with a counselor at my current school. She doesn't believe me because "I don't remember it clearly enough". But my nephew is going to be at the school Mr. G is teaching at in 2 years, and I feel like I need to do something. I emailed the school principal, and he just said "Thank you for your email. I appreciate your input." - that's it. That was his entire reply. I don't know what I should do - I don't feel like I CAN do anything, but I also feel like I have to. Anyway, thanks for the words of encouragement. :)
