My teacher bullied me

I'm sure you all have heard of all the bullying stories that have been going on.
Bullying just makes me sick.
Why do people think they are better than people? And when they think that, why pick on someone? I just don't understand the world. I don't hate the world, but I'm not a big fan of how people act in it. I'm no where near perfect, but I just wish the world could be a better place. As Miss America would say, "World Peace"

Now, there are different forms of bullying.
This one is effecting me.

Dr. Olweus defined teacher bullying in this research as: "teachers using degrading negative comments openly about a student or students."

After screening responses, his research (done in the mid- 1990s) found that 11-12% of students reported bullying by peers, while 1.5-2% reported bullying by teachers, with the numbers reporting teacher bullying increasing as students got older.

Here is my story.

English Teacher

Ashley Jenkins

I'm taking an English class and at the beginning of the year I really loved it. The people were a lot of fun, and the teacher was pretty cool. He likes to state his opinion, which is okay, but he does it in the way where he is right, and your opinion isn't even an option...Just keep your mouth shut. Now as the year has progress at this time, I have not missed one class. I was a great student. I turned in everything, answered questions in class, when he asked me about my personal life in class I told him things.


I missed class one day because I was just tired, but I brought in my homework the next day. I have missed a total of about 3 classes this year. Not to bad, when everyone else misses...5...6...7...but thats their problem.

One day I was sitting there, wearing a hoodie. In the front pocket was my cell phone and keys. I was texting Broc, and my teacher said,

"Put your cell phone away."

So I did, because he asked me too. I didn't text anymore. I put it in my hoodie pocket, along with my hands.

He was lecturing...and lecturing. I was getting bored, so I was twirling my phone in my pocket. I happen to be looking down...(and I guess it looked like I was texting)

"I said put it away"

"Im not doing anything." and I lifted my hands up.

By this time I had taken the back off my phone just to mess with it..because (ADD...I can't sit still..ask anyone)

He looks at me a little later (and I am paying attention, taking notes and everything)

"Get out"


"Your still texting"

I lifted my hands and showed him the back of my phone

"Well stop its distracting me."

I just keep my mouth shut and find something else to do with my hands.

It was not even distracting, because no one else knew what was going on.

Well about a week goes by.

Yesterday I miss class because I had a DR. appointment.

I get in today- and everyone is looking at me.

(I know the teacher had said something about me when I missed.) (How do I know? Because when other people are gone, he does the same thing)

He tells us to turn in all late work, and I said

"Do you want the homework due today? "

"I said all late work"

"I know, but the homework due today"

"Oh, yea"

I am taking notes, answering questions, and just trying to act like nothing happened last week. I look at the clock to see what time it is, because no way I am pulling my cell phone out.

He looks at me and ask what do you have written down.

I tell him I only have one. Because I'm still thinking (Were supposed to have three) And I read it to him, he said

"Well stop looking at the clock, and start writing"

"I will, but I'm thinking"

Class is almost up by now.

"You need to stop worrying about the clock, and what time it is pay attention"

The whole class, I am the only one he has used the tone with.

I start to ask him a question about what we just went over and....I get ignored because

By this time, they are all talking about Jersey Shore...(appropriate for class?)

I raise my hand.

And ask him if what we just went over is due next class

He responds to me like I'm stupid, loud, and embarrassing.


I leave class after because it is time to go, and just wanting to cry. Why me? Why pick on me? I'm a good student, but how did I get on your bad side?

I know this isn't huge, but it hurts. If he keeps going, I will say something to him in Private. It's just not right. There are more cases going on that are more important, and more hurtful, but it starts small.

Life is never what it seems

We are all trying to get through it each day. I went visiting teaching tonight. And to tell you the truth, I didn't want to go because I have a 2 papers, a speech, and I am just so tired. But I knew I needed to go visit my sisters.
1st- I am very lucky to have a companion that is so strong, and willing to go.
Chantel Whitehead you are great! I love you
2nd- I am very thankful that we are able to go see our girls.


Tonight just hit me, and I am so glad that I went. Lately it seems each message reflects on Temples. And just like Aolani said in church one week "We hear the same topics over and over again" And we obviously need to hear them, because they are not clicking.

I have not been to the Temple in a while. We live so close. It's not that I am not worthy, because I am. Time just slips away. As all of you may of had time like this when you just have so much to do!

I look up to my mother. She goes all the time. She works everyday just about. from 11pm-7am and then 8am-12pm.. and tries to catch some sleep, but sometimes there is just so much. But no matter what she always finds time to go to the Temple. I just look up to people like that. I love being able to see the St.George Temple everyday. It is so beautiful.

I'm sorry I am just rambling. I just feel over whelmed right now, but in a great way.
I just want to be there for my sisters.
I want to do better.
I love everyone.

I would up load a picture, but my internet is to slow.

You look at people and think their life is perfect, but once you get to know them you know that they are broken.

The other night my mom called me very upset. And I just broke down eventually. She thought I was so happy, all the time. But I'm not.

I love Broc, and I am so greatful for our eternal marriage. It keeps me going.
I am happy with Broc. I'm just not happy with other things.

I feel like I have no one to talk to. I talk to Broc about everything, but sometimes you need a girl friend to talk to. It seems that ever since I got married, I lost my friends.

Not lost them, but they are still single, looking for love, and having fun. And as a married women, I can't do that. I don't want to.

I just find my self sitting at home alot, not being able to go out. While Broc is out with his friends. I encourage him to go out once or twice a week, because it is good for us to be apart, and spend time with our friends.

My mom thought that I was happy all the time, and everything was great. But its not.
Someones life is never what it seems.
We need to stop judging.
Start loving.

How corny is that? ha, but its true.

The Sunggie!

The Snuggie!
One of the best things ever invented! Broc surprised me wit
h a snuggie when I came back from a trip. I was so excited.
My room mate and I also needed some decor in our room, so I made a poster.
I really wish I could be in a snuggie commercial My room
mate said its like a blanket, only twice as retarded.
Which is wrong. I mean you can do so much with it!
1. Read a book
2. Change the channel
3. Hold a baby
4.Cheer at a game
5. Answer the phone
6.Ride a plane

7. Go to the movies

I have a long way to go before I acomplish all of my dreams of trying to attempt to do everything with a snuggie.

But did you know in 2009 the SNUGGIE was voted the most use less thing ever invtened. Why?
1.It is to long, so you are most likely to trip on it.
Which leads to....
2. It is very thin...and flamable!

So I'm not sure if I want to wear it to a campfire, but we will see!

It's the weekend! What do you do!

It's almost the weekend, and I am so excited! I have just been to tired these past couple of weeks...and I just want to sleep! I'm not really sure what we are going to do, but I hope its fun. We usually spend our Saturdays sleeping in way to late, and then sleeping the day away and watching movies after going out for lunch! This is why we need a kid, so we don't waste the day away watching movies! But I have to admit that it is very relaxing!

What are some fun things we can do?

Check out this video I made! I made it while on the plane. So it is not super good, but it passed the time!

Going back

Once again, I decided to start over. I don't understand why, but I just felt that I needed to. I look at other Blogs and get jealous. They have so much to write about, and I feel like...I don't. Give, most of them have children! But I love bloging! And it just feels that everyone else life is so much more interesting! Anyone else feel like that?
So yea, starting over it what has happened. It seems to happen alot! Something isn't good enough for me! Then again, who cares that I am bloging about McDonald's and going shopping? So here we go!

I am so thankful that Broc and I were able to travel back to Kentucky for a long weekend.
It was a lot of fun, and we were able to go to so many places!
1. Louisville Temple
2. Kentucky's Capital
3. Lexingition
Here are some great pictures!

My best friend had her baby while I was in Utah, and I was so excited to see her!
Carmen Lynn Johnson!
Courtney is such a good mom! I love you
My two best friends!
