|"Dance in This Dream" Music Video||Tips & Facts||Sara Stevens|
In light of Bullying Prevention Month coming up, 13 year-old pop-opera singer, Sara Stevens was a victim of bullying and could serve as a remarkable role model for her peers. Unfortunately, Sara knows all too well the tortures of being bullied for being “different”. Instead of being defeated by the teasing and harsh words, she found solace and a new found confidence, through singing. While she is only 13, some of Sara’s accomplishments include performing in La Boheme with the Atlanta Opera; singing the National anthem at the New York Giants vs. New England Patriots game; and gracing the legendary stage at Carnegie Hall. She's now working on her album with famed producer Paul Schwartz of Phantom Of the Opera on Broadway. Please check out Sara's EPK at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rkdh6p5NKkQ&feature=youtu.be to see all the new and exciting projects she is working on. Additionally, she wrote a song about her experiences called “Dance In This Dream” to use her voice to stand up to bullying and show the world how music has helped her overcome her struggles.

|Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment on Our Nation's School Buses||Toolkit & Training||Safe and Supportive Schools Technical Assistance Center||2011|
The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Safe and Healthy Students and the Safe and Supportive Schools Technical Assistance Center partnered with the National Association for Pupil Transportation (NAPT) to coordinate a special event on Creating a Safe and Respectful Environment on Our Nation’s School Buses. These modules are intentionally designed to be offered as a series. The content of each module complements and completes the content contained in the other module. While Module 1 (See Something. Do Something. Intervening in Bullying Behavior) addresses how to identify and effectively intervene when bullying occurs (including tips on de-escalation), Module 2 (Creating a Supportive Bus Climate: Preventing Bullying) considers effective strategies to build a bus climate where bullying is less likely to occur. It’s our belief that bus drivers and students alike are best served when BOTH modules are covered with drivers within a short timeframe of one another.
