Scott Dietrich recently delivered a School Heroes presentation at my son’s school. My son was profoundly affected by Scott’s message of strength and heroism, particularly in the face of bullying. After Scott’s presentation, my son felt empowered instead of a victim. His whole perspective had been transformed. The fact that Scott reached not only my son but all of his friends, too, is a testament to the power of Scott’s work. The kids were bursting with new ideas and new ways of thinking about the imbalance of power dynamics that can occur amongst people. I cannot thank Scott enough for helping my son in the vital way that he has.

Our school was fortunate to have Scott come and present during Bullying Awareness Week.  From the minute he began his presentation, he had the students hooked... not only because he used magic as his hook but because he was genuine.  He shared personal stories about his experiences with bullying and was able to frame those with a sense of optimism.  He was able to convey the message that we convey as a system: that it is safe to report bullying to an adult you trust and that something will be done about it.

With the students, he developed an action plan for dealing with bullying and gave the students some good, practical advice on how to deal with bullying.

We had the great fortune of having Scott Dietrich come in and do his School Heroes Unite presentation. He taught our students about heroism, and helped them understand that they can really make their own path by becoming an up stander. It really sparked the kids interest and left a fabulous message with them. Scott’s presentation was really animated and exciting, with his enthusiasm and fabulous magic tricks. He had our students captivated. I would highly recommend you have School Heroes Unite to your school, because it addresses a very prevalent issue in our schools, in a very positive and empowering way.

We just had Scott’s School Heroes Unite program, and I just wanted to say thank you so much Scott. We have a Grade 8 boy who’s had some difficulty with bullying, and really feeling like he doesn’t fit in, and your message really came through to him. And after the program when we got to have a little chat with you one on one, and that meant so much to him. I could see his eyes light up, just knowing that he’s going to get through it, it gets better, and that he can become somebody great, like you. So thank you for taking that extra time with our little friend, I’m sure it made a huge impact on him and will moving forward in his life.

During Bullying Awareness Week, St. Fidelis School had the privilege of having Scott Dietrich visit our school with his very important message about bullying. His interactive presentation reminded us that a hero lies within each and every one of us. Each person has the power to make a difference. Students learned and enjoyed themselves immensely.

We enjoyed Scott’s program today, and I wanted to thank him for really getting are Grades 6, 7 & 8 students engaged. I have never seen them behave so well in a presentation before, and I believe that is because Scott had them engaged in the conversation, and thinking about the course of action they are going to take. The thing I liked the most about the presentation is the fact that Scott has the students themselves creating the Action Plan of ways they can be heroes. We are definitely going to be taking this and using it in our classrooms.

The material, approach, and magic touches used in your presentation fostered a sense of inclusiveness, emphasized that strength comes through teamwork, and provided some concrete tools and strategies for our students to use in their daily interactions with each other.  As a school community, we also appreciated that your presentation focused on solutions rather than the problem.  It was wonderful to see you call the students to action and help them devise a 10 point action plan.  Overall, it was a great presentation that challenged each of our students to step up and become the hero he/she was destined to be. Thank you once again for presenting School Heroes Unite, at St. Paul Catholic School.
