This coming school year Jedlie (former social worker & anti-bullying expert Jed Doherty) will travel the country to inspire over 80,000 students to join him in saying “We Choose Respect – Everybody, Every Day, Every Where!!!”
“Jedlie’s character education, anti-bullying school assembly program has helped us to create a safe and caring learning environment.”
Mr Kirk Tower, Principal, Thornburg Middle School, Thornburg, VA
Since 1983 former social worker & anti-bullying expert Jed Doherty has empowered over one million young people and adults by helping them to develop positive attitudes about themselves and others, to be respectful of themselves and their peers, to practice kindness, work cooperatively and to be inclusive. Doherty has created exciting and captivating character education assembly programs that use positive reinforcement, storytelling, music, comedy and magic to help audiences acknowledge the worth of every person.
“This was a great character education school assembly program. The students were very engaged with the message. Before the show Jedlie asked me what anti-bullying / respect issues we were facing at our school. He tailored his message to address those issues, so it really hit home with our students. I would have Jedlie back again. He talked about real world issues at our school and that was the key that helped our students make a deep connection with the material!”
Mrs Carolyn Fasano, Professional School Counselor, Westridge Elementary School, Woodbridge, VA
“Jedlie’s anti-bullying school assembly program supports our mission to provide a safe and caring learning environment for all of our students”
Mrs Mary Maloney, Principal, St Rose of Lima School, Newtown, CT
“We Choose Respect!!!” was written and created by Jed Doherty, a former licensed, certified social worker and his wife, Sonia Guerrios-Doherty, MEd., a veteran special needs teacher in the Boston Public Schools.
“Our students and teachers loved Jedlie’s school assembly program. It was fun and delivered an important, meaningful message. It was just what our students needed to hear.”
Mr David Conroy, Principal, All Saints School, Manassas, VA
“Our students enjoyed interacting with Jedlie. Visually students were rapt as magic tricks left us scratching our heads and the message of building safe and caring schools entered our hearts.”

“We Choose Respect!!!” is adaptable to be appropriate for students from Kindergarten through Grade 8. The assembly program is typically 45 – 55 minutes in length, is completely self contained, can be presented just about anywhere and travels with its own sound system.
