Ms. Brown does not give the students fish; she teaches them how to fish so that they progress from frustration and helplessness to empowerment. I have worked closely with Ms. Brown for two years. I have watched her take recalcitrant, rude young people and, through The No Bull Method, help them transform themselves into responsible, cooperative and polite individuals as they begin to emerge as young adults. Her students learn that there is an immediate consequence to every action; that they can earn certain privileges and that there is a correct way to assertively attain these. Most of all, they learn that they are worthwhile and valuable as individuals.
