National School Climate Center
September 8, 2011
I was thrilled to learn about NSCC partnering with the musical WICKED to create the BullyBust program last year. I am a middle school teacher in my 27th year and bullying has escalated in more recent years with cell phones and the internet as a large part of the problem. NSCC worked to help create solutions. I used BullyBust supports with my students and also participated in their essay contest. They gave us a foundation for constructive dialogue and opened a door for students to walk through to create a positive environment as well as to solve their issues that arose in "upstanding" ways. A workshop with the cast and the musical itself drove all the points home. Wonderful people doing wonderful work that continues to grow.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
my students' participation and positive response to the BullyBust materials and workshop.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
give them more money so they could come out to the schools to do more programs.
