Maxine Miller is currently an Assistant Principal in the Cobb County Schools where she has served teachers and students for the last twelve years. The belief that “relationships, not programs are what truly change children” helps guide the work of Maxine Miller. She serves various schools in the county as a licensed Restorative Practice Trainer to guide schools and teachers towards the implementation of Restorative Practice Circles. Restorative Circles strengthen teacher-student and peer to peer relationships in addition to repairing harm in those relationships. In her former teaching career she taught Life, Earth and Physical Science in Middle School for twelve years. Mrs. Miller holds a Specialist degree in Administration and Supervision from Berry College in Georgia, Master’s degrees in Education from Pace University in NYC and George Mason University in Virginia.
