Limited academic or school administrative attention has been given to violence against teachers and its negative consequences, despite early findings that violence against teachers by students is ubiquitous within school systems and has detrimental negative consequences on victimized teachers. The proposed longitudinal research (Waves III and IV in 2018 and 2019 respectively) builds upon an on-going longitudinal study (Waves I and II in 2016 and 2017 respectively) to examine teacher victimization, using a sample of 1,628 teachers from 130 middle and high schools in San Antonio, Texas. The extension of the present panel research project into Wave III (2018) and IV (2019) will replicate the key parts of the Wave I and Wave II questionnaires in collecting information on seven different types of teacher victimization, characteristics of incidents, school responses to teacher victimization, and negative consequences among victimized teachers. The proposed research would produce a unique and rich longitudinal data set that contains theoretically relevant items, measurements of various types of teacher victimization, and negative consequences. The proposed panel research will also allow us to investigate the prevalence of repeat teacher victimization and risk factors for each of seven different types of repeat victimization and these findings will further inform policy makers and school administrators in developing and implementing comprehensive intervention and counselling programs, particularly those aimed specifically at repeatedly victimized teachers.
