Being an educator today requires a much broader and deeper set of skills, knowledge and capacity than most teacher and leader preparation programs offer. With increasing rates of mental health issues and challenging behaviors, alongside the imperative to create more equitable schools and classrooms, educators often feel overwhelmed and underprepared. Partners in Restorative Change was founded in response to this need for a more holistic approach to supporting teachers, staff and school leaders in all the ways that are now so needed: mindfulness, trauma informed and restorative practices, diversity-equity-inclusion (DEI), social emotional learning, and youth voice.
