Mrs. Pazos: school counselor
(Occurs in the girl’s bathroom. April sees Lisa crying and asks what’s wrong. Lisa is getting bullied by another person. April takes Lisa to the school counselor.)
April: **hears someone crying** Where is that coming from? **Walks into the girl’s bathroom**
April: **worried** Oh my gosh Lisa, what’s wrong?
Lisa: Someone keeps bulling me. I’ve been getting bruises the past few weeks. **shows April her bruises**
April: Why haven’t you told me? C’mon we’re going to the school counselor right now. And wait before we go, who is doing this to you?
Lisa: Mary, but please don’t tell the principle!
April: **confused** Why?
Lisa: Because once you tell the principle she will get even more mad at me and after will bully me even more than she already does.
April: Well I’m still taking you to the school counselor.
Lisa: Okay fine.
April: **walks Lisa to the counselor**
(occurs in the school counselor’s office. Mrs. Pazos, the school counselor, starts asking Lisa many important questions. )
Mrs. Pazos: Hi
Lisa: Good morning
Mrs. Pazos So tell me what’s wrong?
Lisa: So there’s this girl that is bulling me. I don’t know what to do about it because I’m afraid.
Mrs. Pazos: Would you like to tell me her name? Well, if you don’t mind.
Lisa: Will it help if I told you?
Mrs. Pazos: Yes it would. I would be able to talk to her too. I will make sure that she won’t bully you again.
Lisa: okay, I guess I will tell you. Her name is Mary.
Mrs. Pazos: By any chance do you know her last name?
Lisa: I believe her last name is Garcia.
Mrs. Pazos: Do you have any classes with her?
Lisa: Yes I have math with her.
Mrs. Pazos: Okay, thank you. I have a few questions that I would like to ask you.
Mrs. Pazos: How long has she been bulling you?
Lisa: For about 4 months now.
Mrs. Pazos: Oh wow! That’s a very long time. You weren’t planning on telling anybody?
Lisa: No, I was afraid.
Mrs. Pazos: well you have to tell people that’s the only way things are going to get resolved.
Lisa: Okay next time I will definitely tell someone.
Mrs. Pazos: Okay, next question. How has violence affected your life?
Lisa: Well it definitely made me more shy and less confident. I feel like I can’t be myself anymore.
Mrs. Pazos: **writes it down** Okay, next question. What are causes of youth violence?
Lisa: Maybe because the person does not like you or is mad at you.
Mrs. Pazos: **writes that down** okay last question. What could you do about youth violence?
Lisa: Maybe if you tell a teacher or counselor, just like I told you, it would get resolved. Also, you can probably help someone if you see them getting bullied.
Mrs. Pazos: Okay **writes that down** Thank you so much for answering my questions. Would you like for me to talk to Mary?
Lisa: If you can, yes. Thank you so much. I definitely feel better.
Mrs. Pazos: No problem, that is my job. Remember if you have any problems, just come to me.
Lisa: Okay bye.
Mrs Pazos: Bye!
(occurs in the hallway. April, Adismary, and Isabella start asking Lisa how it was going.)
Adismary: How did it go?
Isabella: April told us everything.
Adismary and Isabella: Are you okay?!
April: I hope the counselor made you feel better!
Lisa: the counselor made me feel much better.
**Principle says from the speaker, Mary Garcia please report to the counselor’s office immediately. **
(Mary apologizes to Lisa)
Mary: **walks out he counselor’s office door** Lisa I’m very sorry that I was acting like that. It’s that I wanted to become your friend so bad and I didn’t know how to express it.
Lisa: It’s alright.
Mary: No it’s not.
Lisa: I still forgive you.
Mary: How about we start fresh again?
Lisa: Okay, I would like that.
Mary: Hi I’m Mary.
Lisa: Hi I’m Lisa.
Mary: Would you like to become friends?
Lisa: Yes I would like that.
