I have implemented circles with teachers and students in many schools K-12. I also teach circle implementation to my post-secondary students.
I have experience with:
Small group conferencing
Restorative discipline circles
Areas of Interest and Service
I would be able to help a school that was interested in starting restorative practices, either school wide or even a teacher or counselor who would like to start using the resource.
I have a B.S. in Family Life and Community Services. I worked 3 years as a juvenile probation officer before returning to school to get my Master’s Degree in School Counseling. I was a school counselor at Lakewood Middle School for 7 years. I was the Social Emotional Specialist for USD 305 for 2 years. I have my PhD from Kansas State University in Counselor Education and Supervision.
Currently I am an Assistant Professor at Fort Hays State University teaching courses in counselor education.
