This workshop is done so well, and it is imperative for teachers at any level no matter how much experience they have to experience it. Virginia is very engaging and offers a streamlined constructive process for conflict resolution. She gives typical scenarios from her own experiences, with all of the dialogue, so that we can learn how we can take the children through this process. This teaches them life-changing skills and habits that transform classrooms into supportive and peaceful communities. -Christine Noble
