What does it really take to create a transformative classroom where all students are empowered to see and achieve their full leadership potential?
We are restoring students’ sense of academic identity- restoring what society too often tries to take away- the truth that they are worthy, valuable intellectual contributors.
5th Grade Special Education Teacher
Valued In Our Classrooms
I am restoring students’ belief in themselves right alongside them. I don’t have to tell them who they can be as leaders in the classroom- they have known it the whole time and were just waiting for a teacher to get that.
10th Grade Math Teacher
Committed to our Cohorts
There is a power shift that’s happening as we restore our class community. I now see my students as equal partners in the classroom, not as people I need to manage or control.

Redefine the Vision Of A Transformative Classroom Culture
Restorative Practices in Action challenges high performing urban educators to redefine the vision of a transformative classroom culture by providing community-based learning experiences that allow teachers to create a space that cultivates student voice, ownership and empowerment.
Implement Empowering Theories of Classroom Management
As our teachers reorient their mindsets around the role of student leadership in the classroom, they implement empowering theories of classroom management that transform efficient discipline structures into authentic learning experiences for both students and teachers.
Achieve Full Leadership Potential
As a result of this development, our teachers create classroom cultures that ensure students can see and achieve their full leadership potential.
Ms. Miller, if you commit to empowering more student leaders like you did with us, we will commit to leading in our own ways in the school. We’re with you.
