Summary
Bullying behaviors and incidents increase during the middle school years. Bullying is a problem that affects teachers, staff, students, and families, especially during the middle school years. The purpose of this study was to describe the experiences of six teachers who have worked with students experiencing bullying in the classroom in a Midwest middle school. This study sought to contribute to the body of knowledge concerning teachers' experiences with student to student bullying in the classroom. Data were collected through interviews, direct observations, and written documents. Moustakas' (1990) five steps for heuristic analysis was followed during the data analysis process. The themes identified during data analysis of these data sources partially overlapped with each other, but as an individual set, were unique. The recurring themes related were types of bullying, teacher approaches, and barriers to solving the problem of bullying. There is a great need for professional development in this area so that teachers can clearly identify their responsibilities and acquire the most effective anti-bullying techniques
