    Creating awareness of what constitutes bullying helps with self-assessment and sometimes reduces bullying because when some people know better they do better.

  2. Lorena Aguilar says:

    I strongly believe that using humor to teach social-emotional skills to students/ children is essential because student will take it as a way of having fun without knowing that they are actually learning. Hence teaching social-emotional to students in this manner will essentially allow students to see the picture at the their level of understanding.

  3. 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.

  4. 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!

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

    Following on Pinterest!

  8. I am following on Pinterest and pinned the giveaway to my bullying board. 🙂

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

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

  11. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  14. 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!

  15. 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.

  16. Adam Geisler says:

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

  17. 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!

  18. Stephanie Brashear says:

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

  19. 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!

  20. 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.

  21. 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!
