Teachers for Peace

Teachers for Peace meeting this Friday!!! Show your support, we are stronger when we work together!
Teachers for Peace

Our mission as Teachers for Peace is to provide teachers and families with the resources and education to build the skill of peacemaking in our children and communities. In doing this we hope to build a more peaceful world; one where our children can feel loved and safe and able to peacefully resolve the conflicts they will inevitably face in life.
In today’s society children are exposed to a vast amount of violence, both in the media and in their own lives. On television alone, children will see over 8,000 murders and 100,000 other acts of violence by the time they finish elementary school. If we do not stand up for our children and teach them the skills to live peacefully who will?

Our Goals

• To create peaceful environments in our homes and schools where children can feel safe and loved.
• To build community both in our neighborhoods and classrooms.
• To work with Rosemarie Greiner’s six strands of Peace Education- Sense of Self, Joy in Diversity, Global Awareness, Love of Nature, Imagination and Sense of Justice/ Conflict Resolution.
• To encourage children to stand up for their rights and the rights of others.
• To teach children responsibility for their actions and their world.

We are working to develop a monthly newsletter, as well as monthly meetings focused on the issues of children and peace education.

We are having a planning meeting Friday, July 29th at 7pm at Growing Years Preschool- 3205 Salisbury Dr. Santa Cruz
