The purpose of this study is to determine how the teachers' who are being bullied by their students influenced from the bullying events according to perceptions of teachers and draw the attention of those preparing anti-bullying programs and of teacher trainers to the subject. The teachers reported that their stress levels had increased, a bad atmosphere in the classroom had been created, their expectations for students and teaching profession had decreased. Also, the teachers stated that they most frequently turned to guidance counselors, deputy headmasters, and headmasters for help.
