I "Though I knew bullying was pervasive I learned more concretely about groups more likely to experience it, and how to create a more inclusive and positive classroom culture."

"I leaned ways to make sure to prevent bullying and to incorporate social as well as emotional learning into the classroom."

I benefited from "Thinking of various SEL, CRE, and key factors to understanding students who are possibly in need of an intervention and help."

I "learned about specific language with regards to discrimination, harassment and/or bullying It is important to adopt a common language to properly deal with these issues."
