Jo Ann Freiberg, Ph.D.


I invite you to work with me and others in helping our students learn to work together in schools safely and respectfully while simultaneously learning important academic and life skills.  This website, which represents a summary of much of my work in trying to improve school climate both in Connecticut and across the country, contains a variety of links and useful references for parents, community leaders, educators (teachers, administrators, and others involved in schools), and anyone else concerned with improving the lives of children.  The information provided here is intended to provide others with information and strategies designed specifically to guide adults on a pathway to creating respectful, safe and educational school and playground settings in which every child can thrive.  Thank you for being a part of this very important task.  I so appreciate your participation.  Our children thank you too!

Sincerely yours,

Jo Ann
