Restorative School Programming

Honey Stecken, BA - Restorative Practices School Specialist

Honey is the Team Lead for our Restorative Practices Programs in Schools. Honey joined the Center for Restorative Programs the summer of 2016. Being an educator here in the San Luis Valley for the past 10 years, she has enjoyed watching young minds grow and discover new things. Partnering with students to achieve academically was extremely rewarding. The transition from teaching content to teaching Restorative Practices to other educators, administrators, and especially students and their families was a natural one for her. Honey now assists schools in creating their own positive school climate by learning how to manage conflict in a socially and emotionally appropriate way and by prioritizing the growth of respectful relationships. The practice of partnering with people instead of overpowering them sets the foundation for her restorative work. Other aspects of Honey’s work are to collaborate and engage with community agencies to help support students, staff, and families. In her personal life, she is an advocate for newborn screening, participates in healthcare access advocacy, and is a member of the Organic Acidemia Association. Honey also serves as a community member in ReThinking Substances and Traffic Circles, diversion programs where youth explore the impacts of harm on self, family, and community resulting from an adverse situation they may have caused or been involved in.
