ZoeBus® is a company whose mission is to positively impact bully prevention and school bus safety efforts through a focus on good character. As a veteran educator and owner of ZoeBus, Gina Crump holds the belief that behavior on the school bus directly impacts safety on the school bus. The same expectations for good behavior and strong character in the school building should carry over to the school bus, but drivers cannot be expected to follow through with this expectation without support and training!
Mrs. Crump offers uniquely tailored workshops and presentations rich with interaction. As a certified bus driver, she is able to empathize with drivers as they share the challenges they face behind the wheel. Bus drivers are motivated and affirmed as they learn tips for managing student behavior, being effective role models, building positive relationships with parents, and preventing bullying on the bus. (Flexible pricing is available, according to the needs of your team.)
As the tagline for ZoeBus® indicates, students can respect the ride, by taking responsibility for their own behavior on the school bus. School bus safety assemblies are offered at an affordable rate for elementary age students. By incorporating audience participation and fun visual examples, students have fun while they learn how taking responsibility for their own behavior on the bus makes the ride safer for everyone.
Students are taught bully prevention strategies designed specifically for the school bus, in the most effective setting possible, directly on the bus! “Zoe” the modified school bus is equipped with TV monitors and a sound system, and offers a one-of-a-kind learning experience for groups of 35-50 elementary students at a time. After boarding the bus, students participate in role-play activities and discussions, as Mrs. Crump facilitates engaging lessons that teach students how to be an “ally” as opposed to a bystander when bullying occurs on the bus.
Zoe is also available to visit your building for evacuation drills, School Bus Safety week, kindergarten orientation and open house activities. If you are trying to raise parent awareness of school bus safety, then Zoe is the ticket! (Flexible pricing is available.)
