How do we together dismantle barriers that exclude, recognize past trauma, and identify resources for those in need? This week’s guest, Marisol Quevedo Rerucha, shares how implementing restorative practices changed student behaviors, connected the community and recognized each person. 

In this episode, we discuss:

  • The importance of Morning Check Ins
  • Restorative practices and circles
  • Collective agreements 
  • And Marisol’s new book, Beyond the Surface of Restorative Practices
