Susan’s presentation made a huge impact upon our students. The students were fully engaged and understood the key messages of the presentation. I have had numerous reports about students initiating dialogue about cybersafety and cyberbullying with their parents as a direct result of the presentation. The parent presentation was excellent also and many parents have thanked us for arranging it. We also greatly appreciate Susan’s flexibility in accommodating a last minute change of time.
