Chris Hollyfield visited Indian Harbour Montessori today as part of his anti-bulling, “Got Respect? Tour”.

Chris, definitely knows what bullying is… Measuring 4-foot-4, this phenomenal motivational speaker is perceived at first glance as an undersized man in an over sized world. The “Got Respect? Tour” shows the emotional and physical effects of bullying. Chris maximizes his visual difference to help students recognize and avoid teasing and bullying among their peers.

“Got Respect? Tour” Key Focal Points

The key focal points of his presentation allows kids to see the things that make attending school an enjoyable experience:

  1. Friendship – The rewards of making new friends with your peers, even if they appear different.
  2. Reach for your dreams – Believe in yourself and make your dreams come true, regardless of your personal life obstacles.
  3. Listen and Learn – Foster positive growth by keeping an open mind to your educators, parents and coaches. The program goal is to educate the student body on the value of new friendships verses the negativity of peer pressure and anti-social behavior.


School violence and safety is a national concern today more than ever. It is essential that the community, businesses, teachers, and students work together to develop and implement a disciplined program to create an environment where learning can take place.

“Only by working together will we succeed in developing the strategies that produce the desired results.” – Chris Hollyfield
