KDE Testimonials

Kimberly led the two-day Olweus Bullying Prevention committee training for our district and it was a huge success! Kimberly’s energy and command of the Olweus material really engaged and energized our staff, which resulted in a meaningful training session for every participant. Everyone in the training left feeling that they had the confidence and the tools necessary to train and serve as a resource for the other staff members in each building. I was pleased with Kimberly’s professionalism and commitment to providing the very best training experience for all of those involved! I would highly recommend KDE Motivates and Kimberly to anyone seeking quality Olweus Bullying Prevention training for their schools.

Kimberly was the keynote speaker for the 2014 statewide Conference for Pregnant and Parenting Teens held in Indianapolis, IN sponsored by Health and Hospital Corporation of Marion County – The Young Families of Indiana Network. The audience for her incredible motivational presentation was to pregnant and parenting teens, their families and the professionals that care for them. The young parent attendees left with a strong sense of hope and encouragement to develop and pursue their dreams. The adult attendees understood the importance of their supportive role in helping the young parents. The presentation evaluations were overwhelmingly positive and many requested she be asked to present again in the future. Kimberly’s presentations are energetic and engaging, she was very easy to work with during the conference planning phase and very accommodating. I proudly write this recommendation for her.

I knew the minute I met Kimberly that she was the Olweus trainer for St. Michael School. She has so much positive energy and is 100% passionate about the program. When Kimberly came to our school she made the teachers feel at ease and comfortable. She is extremely knowledgeable about bullying and how to put the wheels in motion for prevention. Kimberly has remained in close contact with me regarding in the beginning, during, and after our Olweus training. I know she is always available for the many questions St. Michael may have. I would highly recommend Kimberly Ewing as an Olweus trainer for any school interested in the program. Once you meet with Kimberly and understand how dedicated she is to this program you will know that you have chosen the best trainer for your school! Thank so much Kimberly for all you have done for our school!!

Kimberly trained our staff along with five other schools in my district. Kimberly was a vivacious speaker who held the interest of my staff that came during two days of their summer vacation. The staff was very please with her professionalism and enthusiasm. She was an excellent Olweus trainer for us. Kimberly followed through in everything that she said she would do for us. I would highly recommend her for training. Kimberly knows her “stuff” and knows how to keep her audiences engaged.

Thank you to Kimberly Ewing for presenting an informative presentation on diversity and the meaning of celebrating the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday. Your presentation brought the spirit of cultural diversity to my MLK Basketball Camp of 80 athletes from all over the state, as well as 20 athletes doing a foreign exchange program. You did a wonderful job using examples and getting every student athlete involved in your presentation.

Kim you are Awesome! Thank you for training our staff in Bullying Prevention. They really Enjoyed you and we look forward to working with you in the near future!

The Bullying seminar taught me that bullying is often over looked in America, even though it’s a very big deal. I especially liked the “acting” part were we were able to experience bullying through all views. I realized that being someone that just watches the bullying take place is just as bad as bullying itself, because you’re watching and not being a solution to the problem. I’m thankful for the people like Ms. Ewing who help young people like me understand the importance of bullying and speaking up. Thank you for teaching the scholars at my school the importance of not being a bully and speaking up.

Kimberly’s presentation on Bullying was informative, engaging, and fun.  When my students returned from Thanksgiving break, they were still talking about how much they enjoyed her presentation.  I am so looking forward to working with KDE Motivates in the near future.  Kimberly you are awesome!
