Hello. My name is Steven www.*** I have been providing bully prevention and violence prevention training and social skills workshops to students, school staff and parents since 1999.
When working with youth, I teach, role-play, critique and reinforce physical and verbal skills that develop self-esteem and confidence that increase social skills - skills that help to create and maintain healthy relationships of all types and reduce being the target of bullies. For instance, using handshaking and high-fives, I teach assertive communication skills using an effective use of voice and strong body language. In turn, these skills are used to stop bullying, which we practice in fun, yet serious, role-playing. This example and other activities are also used to help youth manage their emotions, resolve conflicts peacefully and develop good friendships and support systems.
I invite you to visit the 'testimonial page' of my website ( www.*** ) to read comments from kids, teachers and parents. Feel free to contact me for a free consultation. I look forward to working with you in person or online.
I am also an expert in the Individuals with Disabilities Education Improvement Act (IDEA 2004), and Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act. I provide advice on how to ensure a students' rights are being enforced, including helping to develop well-rounded and effective and IEPs and 504 plans.
I have also worked:
-to prevent domestic abuse as the Youth and Community Educator with Project Against Violent Encounters of Bennington County, VT ( www.*** )
-as Assistant Direct Services Associate and Food Program Coordinator with the AIDS Project of Southern Vermont in Bennington, VT ( www.*** ) and as the Director of Northstar Community alliance where I worked to prevent and reduce substance abuse among youth
-as a facilitator with FATHERTIME and Caring Dads (parenting programs)
-as a residential counselor teaching social and vocational skills to people with developmental disabilities in Washington State
-as a trained mediator

Hello! I played internationally in New Zealand and the Netherlands for 2. 5 years after graduating from UAlbany. I enjoy one on one coaching or small groups. My main positions are catching and corners, but am comfortable working with middle infielders as well and teaching the basics of pitching mechanics and basic pitches to young players. I am all about making the training work for each individual, so the effort the player puts in is just as important to me as the outcome. I am a positive, energetic, and encouraging coach who happens to be occasionally loud. I'm a stickler for getting the basics right and making better habits. The mental game is just as important as the physical game, and I strive to make it an accessible concept to all age levels.
At UAlbany, I was Rookie of the Year, All-Conference team for 4 years, and Player of the Year in my final season. I broke many records for batting at UAlbany, career stats for homeruns, doubles, hits, RBIs, batting average and single season stats in batting average, doubles, RBI. In the NCAA Division 1 batters, I was ranked at least in the top 100 batters in the US for all 4 years, in the top 25 my final season. 2nd in the NCAA Division 1 in doubles per game in 2017, amongst other stats.
In New Zealand, I coached at schools teaching the sport to kids of ages 6 to 16, coached a total of 6 teams (both boys and girls), played at their Premier level, and was selected for a national competition as the only international catcher in 2019.
In the Netherlands, I assisted the juniors teams of the organization and was a professional player in the Dutch Golden League (their top level sport). In 2019 season, we were the Dutch National Champions!
I look forward to hearing from you! Please let me know what kind of instruction you're looking for. My availability varies midweek, so I've just included an estimation (currently a grad student).
See you soon!
