  1. I think it is fantastic that you are teaching about bullying. I had a good friend Ande, who was bullied often growing up and it seems to have scarred her. Bullying is not a topic to mess around with and I am happy that your program is doing such an outstanding job making clear the negetive effects it has. BRAVO to you and your program!
