Without proper care, the future and existence of man may lose its value." Welcome to drmildredpeyton.com! Here you will witness how my doctoral research study on school bullying (“Exploring the Meaning of School Bullying Among Parents of Victimized Children”) has inspired me to help raise more awareness of school bullying as an Author, Consultant, and Presenter. About Dr. Peyton essay editor Dr. Mildred Peyton is a native of West Africa, Sierra Leone. She resides in Maryland with her husband and two daughters. She earned her doctorate (Doctor of Philosophy [Ph.D.]) in Human and Social Services, with a concentration in Social Policy Analysis & Planning from Walden University, in August 2015. Dr. Peyton worked at the Department of Health and Human Services for Montgomery County Government for ten years, where she provided public assistance to residents of Montgomery County, under the Children, Youth, and Family Services (CYFS) Division. Now, inspired by her doctoral research (“Exploring the Meaning of School Bullying Among Parents of Victimized Children’’) findings on school bullying, Dr. Peyton has turned her attention to the issue of bullying, which is prevalent in today’s society. Hoping to help eliminate this problem, Dr. Peyton wrote and published her very first children’s book entitled, “A Bully on the School Bus” in September 2015, and it was approved by Montgomery County Public School System (MCPS) for school library purchases in November 2015. Dr. Peyton takes great pride in her recent works on the topic of school bullying and wishes that all children will one day be free from this problem. Dr. Peyton wants to be a source of inspiration for children who are victims of bullying, as well as their parents. Regarding Dr. Peyton’s background and training, she graduated with her bachelor’s degree in Sociology and Social work in 2003 from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore and Salisbury University and obtained her master’s degree in Counseling Psychology from Bowie State University in 2009. Shortly after she worked with children as a summer camp director and as a director of an after-school program in Rockville, Maryland, before joining Montgomery County Government. “My dream was to become a child psychologist (with some interest in fashion design) and, even though I did not fulfill those dreams, I’ve always had a deep desire to be an advocate for children in whatever way I see fit. I’m a firm believer that children are the world’s future leaders, so it is important to invest in their well-being.” My books, A Bully on the School Bus, and Sophia Writes to Her Bully were written not only to give parents, students, and teachers an example of how bullying may present itself, but also to empower and inspire students to speak out against bullying. The books are excellent tools and references on how to address the issue. A Bully on the School Bus My book is now on sale at these different sellers around the country. Get your copy today!!
