“After Keith performed his anti bullying assemblies and we implemented his curriculum, we have seen a decrease in bullying / harassment problems during the year. When we do have something pop up, if we mention Keith Deltano the student will immediately know what we are talking about. I would recommend Keith as a speaker. ”

“Your anti bullying presentation was informative as well as entertaining.  I now see bystanders stepping up when they see other students not being treated well.”

— Alma Morel, Guidance Counselor
 Thomas Jefferson Middle School
Teaneck, NJ

"This is one of the most impactful anti bullying assemblies that we have conducted in Park 1. Mr. Deltano was very entertaining yet provided an important message on how to respond to bullying and also how to treat others well. Students’ retention of his strategies was high and his message to the parents was equally well received. I liked the fact that Mr. Deltano presented on bullying during his first assembly and followed up with respecting differences in others in his second assembly. Our kids certainly can reflect on the similarities between what Mr. Deltano communicated and what they hear from their teachers on a daily basis. It was energizing and reinforcing to our positive school culture.”

diversity speakerKeith Deltano has served and worked with youth for many years in various roles, including as a military police officer, public school teacher, youth leader, private counselor, and educational comedian. He draws on this varied background to reach out and share with youth. Keith taught sixth grade and won The Teaching Excellence Award for his work with at risk youth. He has been listed in Who’s Who of America’s Teachers and Outstanding Young Men of America. His parent workbook, Fighting Back, has been well received.  He wa also granted The National Impact Award for his work in parent outreach and education

"The students at Southside Elementary took an immediate liking to Mr. Deltano and found his anti bullying presentation highly engaging. After several classroom discussions, the general consensus was that Mr. Deltano’s initial kick-off gave students common language to discuss bullying as well as the ability to label the four types of bullying. His presentation was reviewed specifically with third and fourth graders who started the curriculum Steps to Respect. Mr. Deltano’s enthusiasm and interactive presentation stayed with students and the majority were able to label social, cyber, physical and verbal bullying. In addition to this common language, many students walked away with a new skill set to deal with problem behavior. Many were able to recall the importance of being an active, positive bystander that interrupts bullying. Mr. Deltano’s laid a foundation that allowed classroom teachers and myself, the school social worker, to have open conversations and practice for problem solving in tough situations.”

“Thanks so much for the terrific anti bullying assemblies.  The students are still talking about and I’ve talked to parents whose children went home and talked about the assembly instead of saying the inevitable “nothing” when asked about their school day.  Your message hit home with our students and the wristbands and pledge will serve as reminders of how to be anti-bullies.  Thanks!”

“Awesome! Awesome job!  Thanks so much for performing “Stop Bullying” at our High School. The kids love the wristbands and lanyards and the brightly colored anti bullying pledges you provided now hang down the main hallway as a reminder.”

— Jessica Swaldo, School CounselorIndian Valley High School
Gnadenhutten Ohio

"Having Mr. Deltano conduct his anti bullying assembly with our students this year has really brought a clear focus to what bullying is (we have a common definition which is used school-wide) and what each individual student in our school needs to do to make our school a better learning community. Having the students each sign the anti-bullying pledge has also been beneficial. When I have had to deal with students who have made choices to treat others poorly I have just pulled out a copy of their signed pledge and we were able to have a conversation which put the responsibility directly back on that child. Parents who attended the evening workshop stated how much they appreciated his information, especially in the area of social media monitoring. I was able to share the parenting tip sheets he provided in my weekly school newsletter and from that have also had parents contact me regarding the information they had read.”

— Kenny Jones,
Principal, Parkside Elementary School

“We have had many presenters come to talk about school culture and bullying.  Keith’s anti bullying assembly was one of the best.  He was “real” and the students were fully engaged.  He used humor to address a topic that is uncomfortable and often not taken seriously by high school students.  They laughed when appropriate and really reflected on their own behaviors.  I would suggest Keith’s anti bullying assembly to any school that wants their students to treat others with respect and dignity.”
