  1. Jennifer Mays says:

    Would use these resources in 3 ways: counseling individual students; incorporate them into my Advisor 6 class Leadership project; share some with a few of our elementary school principals as none of our district elementaries have counselors.

  2. Kay Powers says:

    Our School Resource Officer really needs useful, readable, relevant materials to use with his small group sessions. These materials fit his needs perfectly!

  3. Sarah Smith says:

    It would be a blessing to receive these books. I have little to know budget to buy books at my school. I find myself purchasing one book a paycheck on Ebay. I usually have to buy the book that matches my lesson theme that month. Since I see K-3 every week and 4-5 every month, I have about 4-5 books to buy. It gets expensive, especially because I have 3 kids of my own. I would LOVE to have a few of these books for small group book study in 5th grade. I would also like to use them in classroom guidance. I was hoping to get a grant this year, but I’ve had no luck.

  4. Lynn says:

    We have over 710 students in our school district. We are always looking for new ways to educate our students about this important topic. We would use the books with individuals, small groups and classroom lessons.

  7. I also followed on Twitter and tweeted about the giveaway! 🙂

  8. I also liked the FB page and shared about the giveaway. 🙂

  9. These books would be exceptional resources for my work as an elementary school counselor. I would use them in my guidance lessons, work with individual students, small group lessons, presentations and assemblies. I, along with the amazing teachers on my campus, are instrumental in preventing and responding to bullying, and we desire being equipped with more knowledge and tools necessary to be the most effective in fostering a culture of respect. Additionally, I would love to be able to share with my counseling network community so they can learn of more resources that will help change the culture on their campuses. Sharing lessons I create with these books will impact other school counselors and their students.

  10. Kristina Grundmanis says:

    As a rural middle school counselor I would love to incorporate these books into our Silent Sustained Reading time held each day. This would help address my students’ needs to build a culture of empathy and kindness.

  11. Sabrina Barnes says:

    I am a middle school counselor in a rural county with limited resources. I receive zero funds/budget and all materials come out of my salary. I sponsor an anti bullying club with approx. 75 members and growing. The students are eager to serve others and make our school and world a kinder place. We would use these materials in so many ways, including visiting surrounding schools to facilitate lessons on empathy and compassion.

  12. nwags says:

    I’m a school counselor with 1200 students in our building. These resources would be used by all three counselors for small groups, social skills lessons and lunch bunches with our SLP for students with special needs. We would be so grateful to win these!

  13. Sue Watts says:

    Bully-Free Zone in a jar is a great activity for small groups or lunch bunch quick activities. The other books would be great resources to use in the classroom or to put in my monthly newsletters.

  14. Adam Geisler says:

    These materials would be a great supplement to our Second Step curriculum.

  15. Taylor Edwards says:

    As as Middle School Counselor I work daily to help promote kindness and prevent & address bullying in our school. I am always looking for new materials and new ideas to assist me in my quest to put an end to bullying. We have a new program this year Safe school Ambassadors who’s is a student group to help address bullyiing. These materials would also assist us in creating the program’s activities and curriculum. Thank you for putting together an amazing giveaway for such an important topic of today’s youth!

  16. Stephanie Brashear says:

    I would use these lesson plans is a school wide initiative to build character.

  17. Kim wanosky says:

    I am a mental health, school based therapist in a low income district. The school counselor and I work extremely close together to benefit our kids. Together, we are tackling bullying in a big way. Our theme of the year is kindness and respect for one another and these resources would be amazing to use with our kids. We have an upcoming anti-bullying week and the kids are jumping on board in a big way. These activities and resources would be great for us to use during their lunches and in small groups, as this is an initiative that we will be carrying far beyond just one week. It will help us come up with other ideas that we can utilize!

  18. hk7272 says:

    I am a division counsellor and I would share these resources with our Wellness Coordinators in my many schools to help share the information with as many students as possible. As well as using them within my own groups and sessions.

  19. Lauri Murphy says:

    I am a middle school counselor and anti-bullying specialist in my district. I was also informed that I will be writing anti-bullying curriculum for the district. These books would be invaluable. What a great offer!

  20. Randi Garcia Cruz says:

    These incredible books would become part of the library I have available for students in the counseling department. I would use them often for bibliotherapy- either in small groups or in classroom guidance!! We have 25 classrooms, graders kinder to 5th! I would also use them when working with students one on one!

  21. Laura Zaharakis says:

    I would use these in my urban elementary school to supplement our bully prevention library and enhance classroom activities or small group activities about bully prevention.

  22. Debbie Towson says:

    I would love to have these materials because our Middle School has an Anti-Bully lesson each month. We also celebrate pink out day, No Place for Hate, Kindness week and Noble Name calling. One Advisory class designed a great tshirt to sell to students and faculty for our anti bully/kindness week!
    Sincerely,
    Debbie Towson

  23. Ellyn Corpstein says:

    Thank you for offering these resources to help our students gain awesome knowledge power! Always trying to be proactive in classroom lessons….

  24. Stephanie Disbrow says:

    These books are invaluable resouces for my work as a school counselor and elementary teacher.

These books can be used for many different things which makes them great and truly invaluable.

  25. Erin Bowen says:

    Always looking for new ways to reach my students. I love using literature in my groups and lessons.

  26. Ellyn Corpstein says:

    I could definitely use these resources in my small groups and classroom lessons!

    I follow Free Spirit on Pinterest 😊

  27. Aimee Pawlcyn says:

    I work in a very low ses community. There are so very few resources for our students in and outside of school. This year I have finally gotten free of being test coordinator and can finally get into classrooms and start seeing students in groups and as individuals. If I was awarded this gift it would be used to build relationships with students and support their social emotional skills so they can build up their own future and the future of their community.

  28. Dana Copes says:

    I am a school counselor on the special area rotation. I would use these books for my lessons in classes.

    These books would be an invaluable resouce for my work as a school-based counselor. I would use them not only in my work with individual students, but also to provide lessons, discussions, and presentions about bullying in elementary school classrooms.

  33. In Our World Language class, I have a unit on bullying for my third graders. We use: Bullying Is Not An Indigenous Tradition-bullying.gov, Bullying Is Not The Ojibwe Way-WeRNative.org and the book, Muskrat Will Be Swimming by Cheryl Savageau. We take 2 surveys: Am I Being Bullied & Am I A Bully. We cover the 4 points to see if our behavior is bullying: imbalance of power, on purpose, repetition of behavior and on purpose. We will be greatful if our grade class of 100 third graders won your prize for our Ojibwe Language & Culture class library!! 💞. Thank you for caring.

  34. Jennifer Gordievsky says:

    I am a principal at a low-income school in Phoenix, AZ. I would use the materials in my Anti-Bullying classes that I currently teach to the students and I would loan out the appropriate books to teachers with certain needs in their classroom. These materials would be a wonderful help to our school, AmeriSchools Academy, K – 8.

  35. Deana Remington says:

    I am a counselor and I have been looking for books to use with my campus teachers to build and empower our students- our PK-5th 750+ Student campus. Our district covers around 21,000 students and they are so transient- To put a book in the hand of each teacher would be amazing because I can support more students. Having the power and understanding to make better choices and have more of a positive self esteem creates a better community and a better future for us all!!

  36. Debbie says:

    I am an elementary school counselor that services two schools giving me a total of almost 1200 students. I would use these books in my group sessions and as classroom guidance supports.

  37. Vivian says:

    These resources would be used in counselor-led lessons in K-5 classrooms. In addition they would be a valuable resources for teachers to use to reinforce counselor lessons.

  38. Lois Woods says:

    I am a new counselor in a preK-6th grade setting. With minimal resources, these resources would be a big help! I have some kids that are the bully and I have others that get bullied. It would be a big help to have resources to use from for my individual and group sessions.

  39. Lois Woods says:

    As a school based therapist in prek-6th grade, I could use these resources with many of my kids. I have some kids that are the bully and I have some kids that get bullied. We do individual and group sessions and these resources would be great for both and could be used year round.

  40. Jennifer Oliger says:

    These would be great resources to help teach social skills to my students.

  41. Laurel Klaassen says:

    As a school counselor I would use these in classroom lessons, individual and small group counseling, when working with teachers to understand bullying, share with parents who have a child who is either a bully, mean, or the target of bullying. I would use the books as book club books and use them as readers theaters—oh, so many ways to use these resources!!!!

  42. Bonnie says:

    I have 2 kids with Autism. This would be very helpful!

  43. Christin says:

    I would use these resources daily to help my kids.

  44. Mary Beth Waggoner says:

    As a counselor in two PK-8 schools these resources would be perfect for class lessons or with my small groups.

  45. I am a school social worker who works with kids in a Setting III EBD program. I would use these to help teach them how to appropriately approach others. I would teach them how words hurt and how we need to be careful with others feelings.

  55. Michael Bank says:

    This year I moved from a suburban school to an urban environment. Unfortunately there is a great deal of bullying taking place. These materials would help to facilitate both my small and large groups.

  56. As a school counselor, I play a huge role in our Olweus core team. We are always looking for new resources to use . Our rotation schedule is such that we are having meetings 1 time very 4 days. We are also into our 5th year and it is time to switch things up a bit. These books would be great addition to our program! Thank you for offering this.

  57. I would use these materials with my 4th-6th grade Gifted and Talented kids. We would use them to create lessons, skits and other items to share with the entire school. These kids get bullied a lot! It would be great to empower them and to help them empower others at school.

  58. Tina says:

    I would use these resources to help my middle school students become more aware of the implications that bullying causes as well as teaching them who to go to for help and how to stand up for themselves.

  59. Jenny Watson says:

    I teach life skills/family and consumer sciences. I would use these resources in several ways. My students teach pre-bullying/diversity, etc. to preschool students. Also, we lead a school wide Unity Week campaign as well as a Random Act of Kindness Week in February. I would love to have these resources to continue my work in helping educate my middle schoolers about bullying and cyberbullying!

  60. I would use all of these wonderful books in my first grade classroom! I would also share these resources with other teachers in my building. I have 20 students who love to listen to stories! This would be perfect for my classroom, as I teach my class to be “bucket fillers” and not “bucket dippers.” Thank you!

  61. Cindy Reyes says:

    I would use these resources to teach character education in my class meetings.

  62. Elisabeth says:

    I would use these books to plan social thinking lessons for my students. I would like to present a small lesson each morning to help my students be more conscious of others’ feelings.

    As a 4K-7 school counselor I am always looking for resources that will help me work with students. I am always looking for new ways to teach kids what bullying looks like, who they can go to for help, and how they can advocate for themselves. This bundle of resources would allow me to have so many ways to reach kids in my various ages levels.

  68. Tanya says:

    I do a bullying survey with my 4-6 students every year and last year only 1 student responded that sometimes they act like a bully. Clearly we don’t have just one person doing all of the bullying at my school, so I would use these resources to further help students understand that, at times, their behavior IS bullying. And that they need to make better choices in how their use their power and get their needs met so as not to be hurtful to others.

  69. Sarah S. says:

    As a school based therapist at a Pre-K through 8th school in Baltimore City I would use these resources to do: classroom prevention activities, Family education and outreach, staff in services training, as therapy tools for working with students who have been bullied, and as a resource for prevention groups and therapeutic groups.

  70. Lauren Tyler says:

    I would love to use these resources as a school counselor with my school. We celebrate Friendship and kindness week, in February as well as strategies throughout the school year.

  71. Ann Minshall says:

    Hi, I work with special needs students who are often picked on & bullied. I would use the books to teach the students I meet with each week to work on Social Skills. Thank you for all your great resources.

  72. Rhonda Sloan says:

    Rhonda Sloan- as a winner of this bundle, I would use the resources to continue to strengthen my 5th grade students’ knowledge surrounding this global epidemic. By sharing and engaging in the stories and resources, my students, as the leaders our school could begin an active “Anti-bullying campaign” where they would plan presentations for the younger classrooms, Monday morning assemblies, and set up safe spaces for students to come to in order to report “bullying behaviors’ that are being observed on campus. I think these resources would really allow my students to see the “Real world” connections and to immerse themselves in becoming problem solvers and implementing positive strategies and behaviors that are inclusive of our entire student population regardless of differences. I am thinking that through this experience, the students may also create a statement that would become our motto or active mission statement.

  73. Fay Romanik says:

    As the anti-bullying specialist I would use these books to educate students on social interactions that are acceptable and not acceptable. They would also be a great asset to help students who have committed a bullying act to learn how their actions had hurt another student.

  74. Christine Stowe says:

    These books would be a valuable resource to be used to support students learning social emotional skills and to prevent mean behavior within our schools.

  75. Mindy says:

    Hi as a mother of 4 children one with ADD and one which has auditory processing delay I can definitely benefit so my children don’t get bullied in school and guide them how to stay calm and collected

  76. Monica Ciurej says:

    These books would be an asset to any school. I would showcase these books in our school library for checkout. Any students who would check these books out would have the option to write a comment or review about what they learned and be publicized in our newsletter or entered into a raffle for anti-bullying gear.

  77. Rachel Sain says:

    I would use these resources in my K-5 classroom guidance and counseling program!

  78. Melissa says:

    I would use all of the resources in my classroom guidance with students. We also have a Middle School ‘Kindness Club’- I bet that the students could use these books to support their work among their peers.

  79. Toby Sebelist says:

    I would use the materials, in our middle school, for prevention training.

    As a school psychologist, I have used the series that includes “Weird,” “Dare” and “Tough” with the students I see in small group social skills and individually. Many of my students have difficulty maintaining appropriate social behaviors and regulating their emotions. This series has helped me to explain perspective and how things may look different based on things you don’t always see. The students enjoy coming up with “the right answer” when we read the books, even if they can’t employ them, yet, in real life. Plus they really like shouting out “weird” or “dare” as those words pop up in the story.

I am recognized as a Bullying Prevention Specialist by ASCA and would use these resources to enhance our bullying prevention programming.

  145. lara says:

    such a much needed resource; our school has a no-tolerance policy, but bullying is becoming challenging in the lower grades at alarming rates and it’s shameful that kids believe this behavior is acceptable – this would be a super resource! Our school counselor needs more resources to help address at all age levels; this would be a wonder gift to offer!

  146. Brenda says:

    I serve approximately 150 child care programs in Iowa as their child care consultant and I also train classes on the Pyramid Model, I use many materials within the context of this training series to help programs implement concepts learned in the training. I also consult with centers and home providers when they are having bullying issues and they need help. I would be able to model for them how they might use the resources within their program.

    My FCCLA leadership chapter is doing some upcoming workshops for teachers on bullying. It would be great to give these resources to them AND for us to use them in the presentations. They fit perfectly into the topic the teens are going to be teaching/sharing with the teachers in our district.

    I work with students from ages k-21 that are special needs, autistic and emotionally disturbed for individual and group counseling

  150. Corina Morga says:

    Prevention is KEY! The resources will provide our students opportunities to learn about how they can stand up to bullies through group guidance lessons as well as individual counseling skills. As a counselor, the above resources will enable our students to feel encouraged to act and speak out against bullying on campus or via cyberspace.

  151. I am a school librarian in a school, Grades K – 8. I would display the Anti-Bullying resources in the library, introduce them to the classes, and discuss some of the bullying issues in our school. I would also encourage the teachers to bring resources into the classroom when bullying issues arise among their students.

    I facilitate a Rotary leadership training event called Rotary Youth Leadership Awards for 100 high school leaders in an urban setting. I would this publication as a train the trainer resource.

    Our school does not have a Bully Prevention program and would benefit from incorporating a school wide program. In the midst of CPS budget cuts and high social emotional needs, we can use all the support we can get for our students. These resources would be implemented to enhance violence and bullying prevention. Thank you

    I am the school psychologist in an inner-city school. We currently have grades k-6, but we are “growing out” to 7th and 8th during the next 2 years. Bullying is always one of the concerns that we must address year after year. Education is necessary to change the school culture to one of acceptance for all. We currently have small groups run by our social worker to assist students who are frequent targets of bullies to acquire better self-advocacy skills. We need to be able to bring programs into the classrooms to have a greater impact on school climate. The ability to raise awareness, give students common vocabulary, and allow opportunities for discussion and reflection would be infinitely aided by resources that you are offering.

  155. Teresa Bateman says:

    I would use these resources to specifically address an issue that is becoming an increasing problem–a complete lack of empathy. In this digital world too few students really understand the impact their actions have on others. These would be great resources to use in creating a unit based on that specific issue.

    I would use these resources in a variety of different ways (individually, small groups, classroom lessons, etc.) with students in grades K-6 at the elementary school where I work as a social worker.

  160. Kristina says:

    I would use these tools in therapy to educate my clients on bullying prevention and intervention while addressing mental health concerns.

    I would use it to teach everyone at school (since I teach Pre-K to grade 6) how to treat their fellow students better, how to appreciate themselves, and teach about valuable life skills.

  165. Lisa Detrych says:

    I would use these Anti-Bullying resources in both of my Elementary Schools for a Bulletin Board to promote ways to deal with bullying to the entire school. I am forming a Student Bullying Committee and we would use these resources for presentations to all the students! In small peer groups I work with I would utilize the resources to help those in groups who need tools to stand up to bullying as well as, provide tools for those that are bullying to deal with their anger and other issues in a safe manner!

  166. Linda says:

    I work as an Elementary School Counselor in four buildings, both public and parochial. Bibliotherapy is one of the most effective forms of school counseling and a personal favorite, so these would be a tremendous asset, as I work with my hundreds of kids!

  167. Sara Kapocius says:

    We are a grades 6-12 building with a variety of bullying issues. This group of resources would allow our PBIS committee to prepare our students deal with the problems they face. Social media makes our jobs tough, as what happens online comes back into our school daily. We would love to win this bundle or resources!

  168. trina says:

    I would use them in my social skills groups.

  169. I would use these resources with my life skills classes.
