What I liked most was the full explanation of and demonstration of restorative process as well as letting students make mistakes to learn how and what to correct."
"Very informative and I appreciated all of the hours of hands on experience and practice. I felt like we learned years of lessons learning from pros, then additionally got to run the machines and learn this process first hand."
I liked how classroom time was short but informational so we had more hands-on time to practice what was covered in the classroom.Doug and Butch did an amazing job explaining the process on everything and even allowed us to make mistakes so we could learn from them and not make those mistakes again.
I liked how personal it was and how open to dialogue the instructors were.I plan to return.
