Tony Vento knows in his very soul the power of people coming together in respectful small circles, linked with other circles, for renewing and transforming ourselves, our workplaces, and our communities. He is grateful to those generous and wise teachers in high school, college and beyond who encouraged him to create such circles, seeing his gifts before he did. His favorite teachers include Mrs. Molder who not only created his first peer learning circles, but read aloud The Little Prince, and graciously welcomed her fourth graders to sing Let There Be Peace On Earth at her wedding. Tony loves all water sports especially whitewater kayaking – which, like much of his life, gathers circles of trusted people to share stories, chart paths, quiet fears and enjoy what can be created by making the most of lively currents. More information about his professional work can be found at http://purposematters.org.Over the past seven years, he has been introducing the practices and principles that ground Courage to Teach® in Northeast Ohio educational and community settings, including Case Western Reserve University, as well as the national Catholic Campus Ministers Association.
