The AVS PTA is proud to announce that Tom Thelen, National Anti-bullying public speaker, will be presenting at Auburn Village School March 12th.
Tom Thelen, author of Victimproof, has spoken at over 500 school assemblies and youth conferences teaching students how to respond to bullying and how to “Be The Change!” Tom is a high-impact communicator with a message that touches the heart and makes students laugh. His speech creates a defining moment for audiences of all ages.
Rather than the typical “Don’t be a bully!” message, Tom shows students how to prevent bullying from the inside-out. We cannot simply rely on posters and t-shirts to make a lasting impact. Instead, we must motivate students to change from the inside-out by teaching positive character traits like respect, responsibility, and self-esteem.
