Title: Bullying, Relational Aggression, and Harassment: How Adults Can Help Students Create Safe School Environments
We will identify different types of overt and covert bullying, including relational aggression and sexual harassment. By defining and learning to identify all kinds of bullying, school staff can become more aware of their impact on students and become more helpful allies. We will explore practical strategies adults can use to help students create safe and respectful school environments.

Gabe is a young man with an amazing story but he feels his story is not that different than yours. Sure, he was born with a unique body. But if you think about it, you have a unique design too. It just so happens that his design is a little on the unusual side.
Title: Nothing is out of Reach
This training is designed to help inspire you to achieve any goal that you have set. Whether it is something small or the biggest idea you have ever come up with I will help you find different ways to reach them. I will also talk about how to create a community within your school. Not just for your students but for the teachers that you work with. It is important that students know that they are apart of a community when they go to school. I believe that when students feel that they have a place in their school they will succeed more not only in school but in life.
