"Marc did an excellent job of providing our student support and administrative teams with an intensive two-day training on Restorative Practices and circles. This two day training was followed up with a one-day training for our entire teaching staff. The training reinforced for our staff the importance of building relationships, making connections, and building community with our students and each other. The training provided the background knowledge and theory behind Restorative Practices and circles while also providing the practical strategies for implementation at our school."
