I have ben an educator for over two decades. I am currently working as a school principal. I use techniques of sociometry extensively as a school leader with staff, students and parents. I have been formally studying psychodrama and sociometry since 1997. However, as member of the Moreno family, I have been exposed to these techniques since I was a young child. My passion as a psychodramatist and sociometrist continues to be its many applications in education. I have used bibliodrama, axiodrama and sociodrama, in particular, to help students explore and understand literature, history and ethical issues more deeply. I use a wide range of sociometric exersizes to help my students work together to form an interdependent learning community. I have also had the good fortune to train many of my teacher colleagues to use sociometry to develop cooperative communities in their classrooms and schools. I work closely with my mother, Regina Moreno, an excellent teacher and sociometrist. I offer workshops on using sociometry in the classroom as well as ho to use action methods to prevent and remedy conflict and bullying in the classoom and school. My dedication to my grandfather\'s vision to use sociometry to create communities has led me to focus on learning and teaching ways of resolving conflict peacefully and repairing the harm done by destructive disputes. As a result, I also teach community workers and educators to use peacemaking circles with young offenders in order to help these youth repair their relationships with family and community members through Peacebuilders International. I am immensely grateful to the community of students and trainers in the Toronto Center for Psychodrama and Sociometry, who have not only taught me the skills involved in psychodrama but have helped me grow as a person. They have also showed me how an organization can function using the principles of sociometry.
