Background: Brian Leonard, an educator and peace activist, taught at Sullivan Middle School for three years. As a teacher, he observed that violence was “a daily reality” for many of his students. Many had traumatic histories and struggled with abuse, poverty, and neglect. Over the course of his teaching, Brian developed simple peace practices in his classroom that allowed him to build respectful relationships between himself and his students.
