Recognizing National Bullying Prevention Month

October is National Bullying Prevention Month and every year during this month I am so grateful for the opportunity I have to work in a school that offers students a choice. A choice in education. A choice to attend a safe learning environment. A choice that may be a better fit for them than their local brick and mortar school.

How amazing is that? When I think back to my years in grade school, and it wasn’t too terribly long ago, I did not have this choice. Technology advancements hadn’t quite made it possible. And let’s be honest, internet access wasn’t even an option for most of my years in school. If traditional brick and mortar school wasn’t working out for whatever reason, students were basically “stuck” there with little if any options.  Today, many students in many of our great states thankfully have educational options.
