3. Future sphere of influence, as the school leader, how would my beliefs be reflected in program practices and initiatives?
4. Future sphere of influence, as the school leader, how would my beliefs be reflected in our professional development as a community of learners?

6. How does your answer to the previous prompt sit with you?
7. Current sphere of influence: Commit to 5 things you are willing to do this semester that will make your school a more positive restorative place:
2. Watch my own behavior and reactions more, and self-assess whether or not I'm keeping my "Do No Harm" commitment in mind in my classroom.
3. Question students more about whether their actions "Do No Harm".
4. I liked the comment in the screencast that restorative practice is about righting wrongs in a sense, and teaching students better behaviors. I want to keep that in mind and remind students that the goal of juvenile hall is not supposed to be about punishment, but learning how to restore past mistakes with better behavior.
5. We have been having problems with students taking advantage of technology, and are getting together next week to design a school wide, common set of expectations with laptop and internet use. I want to keep "Do No Harm" in mind and try to keep our plan more positive and simplified, than a list of "Do Not..."'s.
