Quite simply, Tessa, a Grade 6 student from Calgary, was a bully.
But despite being a bully, inside she was a lonely, isolated, and confused little girl. She didn’t understand why she didn’t have any friends, why her teachers avoided her, and why she couldn’t turn to her mother for help. There was no doubt Tessa was a bully, and there was no doubt she needed help.
Thankfully for Tessa, she was introduced to the Calgary Police.
