The Baltimore Curriculum Project writes on their news blog:
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.
IIRP professional development trainer Beverly Manigo writes in:
The International Institute for Restorative Practices extends its appreciation to Hampstead Hill Academy and the principals, coordinators and directors from Baltimore City Public Schools who participated in the Open House. With the help of the Baltimore Curriculum Project and principals from both City Springs and Hampstead Hill Academy we opened the doors of one of their schools so that leaders in Baltimore City could see first hand the results of implementing Restorative Practices in a BCPS school. The turnout was great and principals, teachers and parents are excited about the work we are doing.
