Pamela Randall-Garner speaks on Social Emotional Learning and Restorative Justice

On Feb. 2 the Glenbard Parent Series organized a workshop on Social Emotional Learning and Restorative Justice:  The Skills of Building Peer Relationships for a Safe School Climate with Pamela Randall-Garner of CASEL (Collaborative for Academic, Social, and Emotional Learning).

Glenbard West parent Michelle Nothvogel shared this take-away.  " It was great to learn about restorative practices and social discipline happening in our schools with its approach to build empathy, compassion and its focus on how ones behavior affects others. Being reminded about the importance of trust, humor, and making sure everyone has a voice and is heard was also very useful."
