What people are saying.....
"We were in the process of trying to unite our school community after a very difficult year. Claire helped us work through these struggles by taking the time to talk to each teacher to express themselves in the circle process. What makes her approach so effective was that she was able to create an environment that allowed teachers to feel safe to express their thoughts and feelings. This process gave us the tools to rebuild our community and resolve our differences."
