"Other people matter. And it's not just about you, it's about how your actions, words, thoughts will impact other people."

Kathryn Croteau, a fourth-grade teacher at Dye Elementary in Flint Township, started to hear rumblings that one of the third-grade students was being bullied by another girl in her grade. The school has a no-tolerance policy on bullying, so Croteau and another teacher pulled the girl aside and talked to her.

The teachers found out that there was an "I hate (insert name here)" club, so they brought their classes together and found out that most of the kids had been bullied at some point.

The quick actions of the teachers resulted in conflict resolution, and just goes to prove that being proactive can pay off.
