Nicole Reynolds is the Restorative Practices Coach for the Royal Oak School District. She works at the middle school and assists the elementary schools. Her goal as the Restorative Practices Coach is to reduce the amount of suspensions and help create a positive school culture by creating connections and repairing harm.

She was a character education coordinator for 3 years (a liaison between the teachers and the head director of the program) in Detroit, and was a part of the building and district turn around teams in Pontiac where we implemented a variety of programs such as CHAMPS and Capturing Kids Hearts.
