“I have seen our Ambassadors work together as a team to confront a powerful cyberbully in their circle of friends. Over time, the Ambassadors were able to use reasoning and balancing to influence the bully’s actions. I think what was most impressive about this ongoing problem was the persistence of the Ambassadors.” -Julie Opfer, Principal, Cyril Spinelli Elementary, Antelope, CA
