Community Building @ Washington

Restorative Justice News: October, 2016

Community Building

Happy Fall! I spent the month of September getting to know as many of you as possible. With curiosity and a smile I did my best to connect with students, parents, teachers and staff. I held circles with 7th graders, mediated conflicts, completed a student anthology with overflow students focused on the story of their names, and made plans moving forward for more intentional community building.


I will be collaborating with Ms. Carrillo and Ms. Chita-Williams and their perspective classes, Ms. Chahal with a cohort of African American students, Ms. Walker and Male Academy and Ms. Ochoa and Female Academy, as well as individual students in danger of suspension. Through activities, community building circles and one-on-one's, as well as coaching and collaborating with teachers we continue building on the strengths at Washington!
