All of Morningside Center's school-based programs provide staff development for adults, especially teachers, using  engaging, interactive workshops and evidence-based approaches to teacher coaching. 

  • Our classroom-based curriculum programs, including The 4Rs (Reading Writing, Respect & Resolution) and the Resolving Conflict Creatively Program, provide teachers with training workshops followed by extensive classroom coaching to support them in effectively teaching the curriculum - and in creating a positive classroom climate.  
  • Our Advisories program, Pathways to Respect, and Rethinking Discipline programs are also built on effective professional development. In addition, we provide professional development for adults in supporting school-wide peer mediation and Peace Helper programs.
  • We provide professional development for principals through our Planning for SEL program.
