“Every school should have this training for staff.  It was a great session with time for information sharing and problem solving.  The emphasis on practicing skills built my confidence to address and support ALL students.”

“The comfortable tone and climate were key for opening up difficult conversations.  I loved the energy and the chance to practice.  GSAFE rocked it!”

“I wish we would have had more time to work through more potential questions from children.  This is real and we will have to answer them, and practice is needed.”
