Ms. Brown and her brother, Allen Perry were born and raised in our area. Brown spent thirteen years in Valdosta City Schools as a teacher is now employed at Austin Road Elementary School in Stockbridge. Her brother attended Valdosta High School.
Allen decided that he wanted to help students to learn about bullying, and that began the project. Together with his sister, they got busy writing. They wrote a book titled, "No! Mr. Bossy!" to encourage and empower children to love and be themselves. Another goal of the book was to help guide children to find their inner strength for speaking out against bullying. When students accomplish this goal, they will see that school is a fun and safe place for learning.
Books can be purchased though Amazon.com. Pinevale thanks Ms. Brown for sharing this great story with the students and many, many others.
Let's all be part of the anti-bullying movement!
