"This class has impacted my perspective on the importance of creating circles of caring and bully-free classrooms... Every student has the right to feel safe at school."
~ Department of Defense Schools Teacher/Counselor Italy
“I realized that it truly is a team effort between educators and parents when bullying is involved. We need to be better educated on this topic and have a protocol and plan on what we can all teach our kids when a bully is in their class, on their bus, on the playground, and online. We can’t just have conversations; we also need to build up our children to be more secure within themselves.”
~ Elementary Art Teacher, Eau Claire, Wisconsin
“This class and the readings have given me a much better understanding of what bullying truly is. I feel confident in being able to differentiate between bullying and forms of hurtful behavior... I found great value in Barbara Coloroso’s book and would like to present it to my principal to do as a schoolwide book study.”
~ Elementary Teacher, Eau Claire, Wisconsin
"From this class, I have realized that no matter what age a student is they need an environment where they feel safe and free of bullying."
~ CTVC Instructor, Eau Claire, Wisconsin
"It was sad to see this class come to an end. Unlike other classes I have taken, I felt this course had so much to offer that is really relevant to what I do every day. I can't say it loud enough, I will never look at a bully or a bullied kid the same way again. This year I will volunteer to teach an in-service on The Bully, the Bullied and the Bystander. I feel strongly enough about what we learned in this course to take the time to do this."
~ Middle School Family and Consumer Education Teacher, Kenosha, Wisconsin
"Because this was my first online experience, I was a bit frightened in the beginning as to how I would do and whether I could keep up. I loved the interaction with instructor and classmates. I'd take another online class in a heartbeat."
