Thank you to Hampstead Hill Academy and the International Institute for Restorative Practices (IIRP) for an inspiring introduction to Restorative Practices this morning for over 40 Baltimore City Schools principals and teachers! Attendees visited classrooms and participated in restorative circles.

Baltimore Curriculum Project President Muriel Berkeley, Hampstead Hill Academy Principal Matthew Hornbeck and City Springs Middle/Elementary School Principal Rhonda Richetta delivered wonderful presentations on their experience implementing this positive approach to building school culture.
