I am an educational psychologist and former classroom teacher who is passionate about educating strong, caring, resilient children and creating safe, caring learning communities. I’ve presented workshops and keynotes on social and emotional learning, character development, and bullying prevention to hundreds of schools, organizations and U.S. Army bases around the globe. My proposal “Ending School Violence” was signed into California law in 2002. Published books include: Building Moral Intelligence, The Big Book of Parenting Solutions, No More Misbehavin’, Don’t Give Me That Attitude, and Esteem Builders. I am also a Today Show contributor and serve as goodwill ambassador for One Laptop per Child (OLPC). My latest books (and passion) are The 6 Rs of Bullying Prevention: Best Proven Practices to Combat Cruelty and Build Respect and UnSelfie: Why Empathetic Kids Succeed in Our All About Me World.
