Our Lady of Sorrows, TCDSB

April 1, 2014

Our Lady of Sorrows in the Toronto Catholic District School Board!  I met two tech-savvy Principals today who loved the message to students, and more-so to parents this evening.  The Principal took a unique strategy today. During Q/A he asked staff to leave me with the students for a private Q/A.. and I was blown away by the fact that the Grade 7/8s just opened up and asked even more questions.  One hour and thirty five minutes collectively between the presentation and Q/A.  This evening – parents kept me until 9:35pm… I never leave until the last question is answered.  Thank You for allowing me to speak with your community

Blessed Scalabrini, YCDSB

MARCH 31, 2014

Blessed Scalabrini in the YCDSB today – great day with students and parents this evening.  I was so focused that I didn’t realize in my audience were two students whom I have coached in the past (girls soccer).  That’s for allowing me to speak to a wonderful community today.

Ecole Saint-Antoine / Ste Marguerite

An incredible way to end my week in the Windsor area & at Saint-Antoine & Ste Marguerite today.  Two great student sessions, and a full house of parents this evening!  Extra copies of the hand-out were required.  A special thanks to the Director at the Providence School Board for attending this evening to support the parents message.

Ecole Pavillon des Junes, Providence School Board

March 25, 2014

“My child made me come this evening” a mother told me at the parent session this evening.  When students go home with a message of safety, and then encourage their parents to attend – a family is now on the same page!  A great day with students and parents.  Thank You!

Chatham Kent Secondary School

1000 students today at Chatham Kent Secondary!  What a great day speaking to two attentive groups.  The feedback from students and teachers was fantastic.  One teacher exclaimed “you changed their habits”  Thank you to the Parent community for making this day happen for students and parents.

University of Toronto, Scarborough Campus

March 21, 2014

I had the pleasure of speaking to staff (who are also parents) today at the U of T, Scarborough Campus.  Within two hours of leaving, I was forwarded the evaluations issued to the attendees.  It was the first time I saw “straight A’s”, in a very long time!   Thank You

Port Weller, DSBN

March 20, 2014

My second visit to Port Weller in the DSBN in just over a year.  After my visit with the students and parents today, I was asked to return next year also!  I can’t begin to express my gratitude to a community that has embraced my message to keeping students safe, while empowering their parents to guide them in using technology safely.  Thank You!

Notre Dame ES & Saint Mary’s HS

March 19, 2014

Day three of three.  My day started off at Notre Dame with students from two schools and then ended off at St Mary’s HS.  I would like to thank all the Principals involved in coordinating an amazing three days over two cities, and 8 schools!  I appreciate speaking to your communities.
