Open Conversation

Caryn, 12th grader, on Restorative Circles

Circle helps with school life because you know that you can receive help not only from the teachers, but from the students. The circle process has been one of my favorite parts of my English class because we get to share how we feel and  our opinions about certain things. It's good to hear the perspectives from other students in the class.  I would say it's easier to speak to my peers now.  Because since we had that open space and we can communicate with each other, in another class if I have a question about something, I can ask another student, because I feel more open.
