"I learned about different techniques that I can use to problem solve cyber bullying. I learned how to also incorporate my colleagues into troubleshooting problems and I also learn how to initiate discussions with the children to try to eliminate the problem before it starts"

"I made connections with the Hierarchy of Needs, and how students need to feel safe before they can actually access the curriculum."

"I think I have a clearer understanding of how to remain calm and in control. To deescalate a potentially violent situation."
