"I just wanted to let you know that I enjoyed both your workshops but especially the one on School House Bullies. As a new elementary school counselor I was not quite sure how to implement a school wide bully prevention program, but you have given me some great strategies to use. I am excited to start the new school year and train my staff on how it is everyone's responsibility to be accountable for bully prevention."
Maria Enoch, Counselor

"Thanks for the great presentation! My principal and I gained a lot of good information, but even more importantly, a lot of talking points for dialogue with our staff and district administration. Great workshop - we have recommended it to our administrative brethren here in Delaware."
Jeff Jones, Assistant Principal
