On the first day of third grade, my curly haired self strutted into the classroom with confidence. Seating arrangements would be assigned and I had a one in twenty chance of sitting up in the front like I had hoped. Of course, I had to be put in the back of the room and last for everything. I had had enough and threw a fit; I was sent to the principal’s office for the first time ever.

On Feb. 5 Noemi Tonche, the mother of a 9-year-old bully victim, took to the Blythe Neighborhood Watch page to publicly share her thoughts regarding Ruth Brown Elementary School failing to protect her daughter from a group of four bullies. Sharing how her daughter has been continually bullied since last December, being called rude names and teased because of the way she speaks, Tonche said she met with the principal a number of times to address the situation, which was not handled, per her last Facebook post.
