“My name is Kendall Perez and Deb Bryant virtually visited my first grade class in Santa Fe, New Mexico once a week to teach my students much needed tools and strategies to mange their social and emotional health. Many of my students come from past trauma and have greatly benefited from Deb’s tools. I find myself using the choice tool to remind my students we can all make choices about our behaviors, and the happy list tool with my students and even in my personal life. The students love acting out the social  emotional strategies Deb teaches them with puppets and I am confident to say that the skills they learnt in her program will help them for years to come.”

Kendall Perez, First Grade Teacher


“My experience working with Ms. Deb to help teach my students Social Emotional Learning skill was very beneficial. She is very caring, engaging and the kids really enjoyed doing the skits to help practice these Social Emotional Skills. Thank you.” Michael Lewis 2nd grade


“The Stand up For Kindness Crew worked closely with my 6th grade students to help them understand the causes and effects of bullying. They emphasized the power that students have to stop and prevent bullying. I am grateful for this program and believe it will transform my students from Bystander to Upstander.”

“The message is powerful and so needed for my students. Debra brought students from the St. Michael’s SWAT team to share with the children, which brought even credibility to the information. The way the material was presented was so engaging. The students were able to participate in various portions of the presentation, while they were learning. I firmly believe that not only is “good” for the students in today’s classes, but extremely necessary. The student’s learn understand how importance of this in all their interactions.” – Teacher, DeVargas Middle School
