Bully Prevention and Awareness Through Education
Who We Are
Experienced network of professionals and educators committed to working with schools and families to eliminate bullying and create safe learning environments where students can thrive and grow. We utilize connections to research, strategize and advocate for all students to build custom programs for school communities that educate and empower students, parents and faculty.
School Climate Survey and Analysis
We will develop, administer and analyze a custom survey for your school community to identify the bullying issues.
Faculty and Staff Professional Development
We will design individual sessions based on your school’s needs that will identify the most current research, what bullying is costing our schools in academic performance and financial ramifications, and the best practices available to solve the problem.
We will educate parents on what bullying looks like, provide clues for parents to use to determine if their child is being bullied or is being a bully, and how parents can support the school and their children in creating a positive and safe learning environment.
We will teach students about bullying – the psychological, academic and legal ramifications with strategies on how to prevent bullying in your school and create a positive and safe learning environment.

I highly recommend other learning communities employ the work and talents of Dr. Boatman.” (Jeannette Vaughn, Elementary School Principal, Albert Einstein Academies)
