I am passionate about school climate and culture. Restorative Justice in schools is a transformative approach to building a peaceful and positive community for learning. I have experienced firsthand the benefit of using restorative skills and strategies K-12. As students gain empowerment and take ownership of their learning community a more respectful environment emerges. These courses are designed to give educators the theoretical underpinnings of restorative practices as well as practical skills and strategies for implementation in their school.
