Hello! I am a Montessori teacher at a public magnet school. I teach 7th and 8th grade all subjects. I also write a blog that is a 365 day experiment with peace at http://peaceisachoice.tumblr.com/
I am also a writer and you can read more about my current writing projects at http://peggyepatesmith.weebly.com/
I won an award from the American Montessori Society for my thesis, Impications of Peace in the Montessori Environment It is available on line at the AMS website if you would like to read it.
One book I would highly recommend even if you are not a Christian is the book, Jesus and Non-Violence, the Third Way by Walter Wink, this slim book gives fantastic examples of real life examples from all over the world of people using peace to change their lives and communities.

Great to see you all! I have not been on in a while, but now with the New Year, I am back to trying to keep up with all my e-groups! A faculty member and I are actually designing two university-level courses incorporating peace studies, and have been perusing the many books out there! Any recommendations? I've been reading the classic "I'd Rather Teach Peace" - anyone else out there read it??

Hi, I am teaching a Peacemaking course at Washburn University in Topeka, Kansas where I have been on faculty for 30 years. I am pleased to discover this group and look forward to sharing resources and learning from the rest of you~

Hi all - a fellow faculty member and I are creating a faculty/student working group called the Culture of Peace Working Group - we hope to be able to open a dialogue about peacebuilding and provide participants with skills and insight learned through activities that we introduce from different sources. I am not sure if I am able to actually post the PDFs, but I will try to post links to various peace-building/conflict resolution manuals, workbooks, and guides that are available on the web. If you have any that you know of, feel free to post!

Hello all, I reside in New Hampshire, USA. I am very interested in the evolution of consciousness and see the holding of Peace as an important aspect of our growth. I am an early childhood educator (with roots in Waldorf education) as well as a visual artist (oil painting by trade, but I enjoy whatever and however 'expression' needs to be created through me.) Currently I am the artistic director/co-coordinator of our state's campaign to establish a U.S. Department of Peace.
I enjoy modeling and instilling early conflict resolution skills in the wee ones. My experience is with AVP (Alternatives to Violence Program) , NVC (Non Violent Communication) and CRETE (Conflict Resolution Education Training for Educators).

Just a quick question: Where are we all from and where do we live?

* I am from Colombia and I live in Decorah, Iowa. And I attend Luther College.

Peace and Love,
For a Better World,
William A. Montoya,

I have been a PeaceBuilder all of my life. My legacy from my grandmother was to create peace wherever I was. That did not mean that I was walked on or bullied or did not have an opinion; it meant that the method and manner in which I responded and reacted was to be in a peaceful nature. May Peace be with you today.
