A Principal Speaks!

Dear Mike,

Your recent presentation on bullying to the teachers of the Ware School district has been characterized by many present as the most significant and timely that has taken place over the past decade. The next day the schools in our district buzzed with conversations about the ideas that you presented and how they could be shared with our students in order to improve their physical and emotional safety.

I personally found your presentation to be realistic, relevent and most of all, useful. As an educator of thirty eight years, I was gratified to be able to expand my "professional toolbox". The very next week I was able to guide and assist parents in distinguishing between aggression and assertiveness in resolving a bullying issue.

Thanks to the momentum generated by your presentation, plans are in the works to implement a peer support group to prevent bullying here at Ware Middle School. we may even name them "Bogdanski's Bully Busters! It is the overwhelming hopeof the teachers and administrators in our district that your visit to our schools will become an annual event.

Thanks So Much,

Robert K. Warren
Ware Middle School
Ware, MA
