Heidi Rybarczyk has a wealth of knowledge from living internationally in diverse communities and backgrounds. Her diversified training in Restorative Practice, Trauma Informed Care, Mediation, Implicit Basis, and Cultural Education provides a setting that integrates all of these approaches, along with the use of Circles, to teach in the classrooms and communities. She believes that these practices are the key to working with the 21st century student. Heidi also uses her experience of training of animals to teach these practices. Heidi uses the Circle process to teach in various classes, such as Peer Mediation (Vibe Control), Restorative Practice/Trauma Informed Animal Care Community Class, Life Science, Aquaponics, MAAP Stars, Prom Committee, Morning Circle (Advisory), Pop Culture and others. Heidi is a Restorative Practice Lead, Science Teacher and Student Success Coordinator (SSC) at Paladin Career and Technical High School in Blaine, Minnesota.
