Dear Dr. Bonura and Students,
To have a class named after our book, Teaching Passionately: What’s Love Got To Do With It? is truly a unique and special gift. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. I will always remember this with joy.
I know that each of you lives demanding and complex lives, which makes it so special that you would share your valuable time with the ideas of the book. We are extremely honored. At the heart of this book is one central idea: Education is radically about love (Paulo Freire.)
I wish you the very best with your professional development.

Welcome to the course, “Bullying Prevention and Intervention: Sensible Strategies!” We’re excited that you’ve chosen to take this course and to delve into the world of bullying prevention and intervention. We decided to write the book, Bullying Prevention and Intervention: Realistic Strategies for Schools after researching bullying among school-aged youth and presenting to educators, counselors, and psychologists for over a decade. We have been struck by the fact that many school personnel don’t engage in effective and data-based bullying prevention and intervention strategies and we wrote this book to help bridge the gap between research and practice. We hope you find this book helpful in your important work in stopping bullying behaviors among youth.
