Peace & Justice Conversations: Peace & The Just Schools Movement
August 31 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pmFree
Please join us for the 7th installment in our Peace & Justice Conversations Series: Peace Education and the Just Schools Movement.
Our guest will be Misty Crompton, who is a middle school social science teacher with 20 years of leadership and experience in the Derry Cooperative School District. She received her B.A. in Social Science Secondary Education with a focus in Human Geography and Environmental Studies from the University of Vermont in 1999, where she also received her M.Ed. in Curriculum and Instruction. Crompton has also worked part-time as an online instructor for the New Hampshire Department of Education as well as an adjunct instructor with Southern New Hampshire University.
This week’s conversation will center on peace education in our schools, and in particular, the national “Just Schools” movement which Misty is involved with here in New Hampshire. How do we insure our curriculum and our classrooms focus on equity and inclusion in order to build a more just and peaceful world?
Misty’s work is centered on the belief that when schools ensure students feel safe and valued, and also demonstrate they are willing to place relationship building and social justice as a high priority, they will help to promote a safe and positive school culture.
Join Dr. Whitney Howarth, Associate Professor of History and Social Studies Education, at Plymouth State University (New Hampshire) and Misty Crompton (Derry NH middle school) in this timely conversation about our children, our society and the connection between the two.
