Testimonials

"Thank you for sharing your expertise and your research on Cyberbullying with the District Safety and Security Directors at the March Statewide Meeting. Your presentation was most relevant to the audience of both law enforcement officers and educators. As a matter of fact, it served as a catalyst to begin the necessary dialogue needed between all agencies so that we can address the most potentially dangerous behaviors that occur all to often in our schools and communities. You communicated most eloquently and so effectively, the importance of being skillful with technology, so that we can responsibly understand and monitor the online environments of our youth. We hope that you will accept our invitation to attend future meetings. Our future forums will be designed so that we will share the unique best practices and lessons learned that relate to the Cyberviolence incidents we experience in our respected roles. "

Kim Mazauskas - Bullying Prevention/Intervention Coordinator, School District of Palm Beach County, Florida
