"David Shaman understands the subject of Harassment,
Intimidation and Bullying. He presented the new state statute,
gave examples of how other schools are dealing with this problem
and then engaged my staff in meaningful dialogue on ideas that
we can try here in our schools. This was an in-service that was
relevant and engaging, and the response from staff members was
"The in-service on the new studentís bill of rights presented
by David Shaman was very informative and provided opportunities
for teachers, paraprofessionals and specialists to interact and
collaborate together in a very meaningful way."

expectations. It offered many ideas to create a positive
environment in a school setting."
