I have been formally trained through NJEA and NEA with holding hundreds of formal Circles and my own restorative practices: Sequential Restorative Circles,
Justice Circles, and Fishbowl. I have presented restorative justice practices for NEA and NJEA.
I will support the community and continue to coach members through the
process; what does that coaching look like? It looks like this:
Creating a positive change • Providing feedback • Asking open-ended questions
• Giving Direction and Encouragement • Providing Positive support in taking action for change – we can do this through professional development or one-on-one sessions.
