I was honored and truly blessed to be allowed to present a plenary session at the Seventh Annual Montana Crime Prevention Conference in Bozeman today. I have been fortunate to present on school security at a number of professional conferences in Montana. I have always found the folks in this beautiful state to be straightforward and down to earth. Though a sparsely populated state with a relatively low violent crime rate, there are many positive school security and emergency practices in place in Montana such as the state’s robust school drill requirements.
We discussed pattern matching and recognition and I delivered my motivational presentations Weakfish – Bullying Through the Eyes of a Child and Dream Catchers – Succeeding and Surviving in the Helping Professions.
It was truly a pleasure and an honor to return to big sky country and interact with so many outstanding advocates for the children.
