Lake St. Louis, Mo (KSDK) -- A teen who decided to be home schooled by her mother to avoid bullies is heading back to school.
Kayla Stewart, 12, had such a bad time with teasing last year, she and her mom decided home schooling was the best option.
On Thursday, she boarded the bus for Wentzville South Middle School and her mom was there to take a picture of she and her brother at the bus stop.
Kayla is excited about returning to class and has a plan to deal with bullying. She said her mother taught her bullies often target kids to get a a reaction, so she said she is not going to give them a reaction.
