Since 2015, Mercy Model in Schools has worked with our partner schools to improve their understanding of our youth and the adversity facing many young people in our city.

Under the leadership of the Manager of Learning Partnerships Andrea Rosenberg, the programming has included introductory presentations on the impact of trauma on students in the classroom, open houses, free webinars for teachers, a two-day summer workshop, and ongoing consultative work with schools and school networks.

This past school year, over 800 educators attended our programming, which aims to change teachers’ mindsets about student behaviors. Notably, Andrea has worked with the ASPIRA Charter School network, Academy for Urban School Leadership (AUSL), and Erie Charter Elementary School. This summer, Mercy Home will host two elementary school staffs for professional development workshops on trauma-responsive care before the academic year begins.

This coming academic year, Mercy Model in Schools will continue to grow and receive a new name to reflect the offerings and the nature of the programming. Mercy Model in Schools will become Mercy Home’s Resilient Schools to capture our goal for students, teachers, and school communities to build resilience in the face of adversity.

Andrea is excited to continue to partner with teachers and schools across the city to enhance their skills in responding to challenging behavior to help all students learn!
