Testimonials

"I so appreciate that you took the time to come to P.S. 99 and present such a worthwhile educational assembly. I was quite surprised at some of the responses you received from the students and how invaluable the presentation was for them.
Thank you for enlightening us. It will be instrumental in helping the students use technology effectively and safely."

-Paulette Foglio, Principal of P.S. 99 Kew Gardens, Queens, NY


"We had a great response to Don’t Press Send through the pledge that went home. Many of the students said they had conversations with their parents about what they could do when on social media. It was a good reminder for parents to have a conversation about acceptable behavior when online. Your presentation was so relevant for kids today who don’t always think about the implications of what they do online. It is so important to teach children to be mindful and empathetic of what they are doing when using their devices."
-Stacy McCally, Guidance Counselor at Springs Elementary School, East Hampton, NY

"We can't say it enough - kids need to know how what the ramifications are and just as important, how to consider others' feelings. What you write can be misconstrued and/or hurtful. Just Don't Press Send. Take a minute and think before you click. The presentation at SSMS was fabulous and the students gained so much knowledge and wisdom."
