The Truth
2 April 2015 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

A student's memories of abuse at the hands of this so-called "victim" teacher... www.mcmeekan.net/art/wmrab/index.php

an excerpt:

One of the children, Tammy Chamberlain, was subjected to almost daily, ongoing, severe, organized bullying.

In an attempt to gain relief from the cruelty of ongoing abuse (by the teacher, and far too many others....) about her weight, her doctor approved a weight-loss drug for her. I knew what she was going through

  • and completely understood why she wanted to lose weight. I have


always supported her Mom's attempt to help Tammy be less of a target.

She suffered a catastrophic reaction to that weight-loss drug, and died.

When she died, I could not bear to attend the funeral. It's truly a struggle to find words to describe the feelings of being there, watching that going on, and watching a teacher - someone we were supposed to be safe with - being the lead bully.

Horrific.

I honor her - and her family's pain and courageous journey forward. Her Mom was one of the school board members who tried to help her daughter
  • and all of us - and was tragically also sued.




I asked her Aunt Cathy if she'd like to offer her memories/comments. Her response:

'My wish for You and Tammy is that one day a Movie is made with the truth!!! My little niece did not Survive from the hands and sick mind of Jean Eckmann!!!"
