Self-Love is Key!

Areia Cobb has developed an educational program to be utilized in Elementary Schools across the country.

Bullying is a major concern that is hindering educational, professional and personal

progression in the school system:

According to DoSomething.org:

  1. Over 3.2 million students are victims of bullying each year.

  2. Approximately 160,000 teens skip school every day because of bullying.

  3. 17% of American students report being bullied 2 to 3 times a month or more                                                                                              within a school semester.

  4. By age 14 less than 30% of boys and 40% of girls will talk to their peers about bullying.

  5. 1 in 4 teachers see nothing wrong with bullying and will only intervene 4% of the time.

In October of 2015 the U.S. Department of Education data showed that in most states

black, Latino and special-needs (disabled) students get referred to police and courts

disproportionately. The volume of referrals from schools is fueling arguments that zero-tolerance policies and school policing are creating a “school-to-prison pipeline” by criminalizing behavior better dealt with outside courts. The Center for Public Integrity ranked states by their rate of referral for every 1,000 students.

So what’s the solution? How do we get bullies to stop displacing their frustrations (fear, anger, hurt…) on others? How do we get those being bullied to not care what others think? How do we get and keep our students engaged in learning? How do we stop our youth from acting out and disrupting class? 

Assist the faculty in building relationships with their students with MKoM: Social Emotional Learning Thru Literacy, which expands on the following concepts from the book, My Kind of Me:

  1. Bullying: Physical, Cyber, Indirect/Group

  2. Self-efficacy: Your belief about Your capabilities

  3. Peer Advocacy:  Being there for those not strong enough to be there for themselves.
