While I am very fortunate to have not been assaulted by faculty at ISS, I was sexually assaulted behind the lockers by sophomore when was in eighth grade and he persistently harassed me in the years to follow. The, freshman year, a senior began to show her affection for me by slapping my butt so hard it would bruise. She’d pick me up and hug me so hard I couldn’t breathe. At that age, I didn’t know anything about same sex relationships so I just thought this was how it worked. I never reported either of these people, even though their actions were very much public.
Side note: Diane Sheppard would almost always come into my dorm room without knocking, shortly after I left the showers.
