What people are saying about the S.K.A.T.E. Show

“The SKATE Program was awesome!  It addressed bullying and gave students strategies for dealing with bullies. I would highly recommend the SKATE Program to other elementary schools!”  Angela Livezey, Principal  North Mahaska Elementary, New Sharon, Iowa

“Desirae’s SKATE show was a great resource for our school to use in our efforts to create a bully-free environment. Dizzy’s message is positive, practical and entertaining. With simple, easy to remember steps for our students, and lots of energy, this show was a success!” -Jay Green, Principal, Ottumwa, Iowa

“Your program, SKATE, was energetic, enthusiastic and educational all rolled into one. You could tell that the kids were with you by their eyes and their eagerness to participate. I liked it when you gave them permission to talk to other adults when walking away didn’t solve the problem. Wow! What a way to educate and have fun at the same time.”
– Tom Shafer, SKATE Sponsor – Farmer’s Insurance

“Desirae’s  character has become a well-know staple in Ottumwa and surrounding communities.  I’ve had the pleasure of getting to know Desirae professionally and personally and can only say her unique style, and the well-being of children is sincere and comes from a genuine place in her heart. I’ve seen her capture the attention of children and keep it. They watch and listen intently. They learn and absorb without even realizing it.  This S.K.A.T.E. program she’s introducing is vital in our community schools in light of recent teenage tragedies. By intervening at a young age, perhaps her efforts will help prevent future incidents.”  Jillian Collett, Spotlight Event Marketing/Ringling Brothers & Barnum & Bailey Circus Marketing Manager
