The Peace Learning Center can be helpful for students and teachers if there is a student/teacher conflict. Mrs. Clare Wildhack-Nolan is the person who runs and manages the Peace Learning Center. She works there by herself on Mondays and Wednesdays. She would like to place a box in the cafeteria for kids so they can write their problems down and put them into the box if they would like help with their conflicts. Mrs. Wildhack-Nolan “I to make Tech a better place filled with peace.”

“I want to help Tech students become comfortable talking to somebody that’s older about their problems with another student or teacher.” said Mrs. Wildhack-Nolan. She states that she knows how students sometimes also have conflicts with staff members. Some students feel when there is a conflict with a teacher and nobody will listen to them because they’ve been told not to argue with an adult or the adult is always right.

“ We have mediated conflicts between students and  students and teachers” Mrs. Wildhack-Nolan said. “We also have had one on one conversations on strategies and situations to calm down people in stress and anger.” On Wednesdays the Peace Learning Center has facilitated three workshops in the afterschool program through their social justice leadership club, those are still offered if anyone wants to go.

“I work with about 3 teachers weekly who reach out for our services. We have done about 4 student and staff conferences. We can do more if people request them.” “Unfortunately, we have not been able to do any staff training due to the fact they are all scheduled with other topics. We would love to do some though, if teachers or staff want more info individually or in teams” said Mrs. Wildhack-Nolan.

The Peace Learning Center works with to teach Restorative Practices which build good relationships and problem solving skills for groups. “Adults are just as much our focus as students in a school.” said Mrs. Wildhack-Nolan.
