What Our Community is Saying

"I feel like each time we have our TCA course I walk away empowered, inspired and with more tools to try in my coaching role. I am grateful to have the support from amazing coaches in my class. I think just having lots of time to role play is so beneficial to our practice!"

What Our Community is Saying

"The Transformational Conversations Accelerator is like a booster shot for my practice! I feel supported, full of good practice and excellent ideas. I made some great connections with amazing coaches from all over the country (and beyond!)."

Tina M.
What Our Community is Saying

"One of the richest impacts has been the web of understanding that’s building around our district as four of the curricular leaders participate in this same membership AND as more and more of our staff members participate in other trainings (Art of Coaching Teams, Coaching for Equity and/or Taste of Coaching for Equity). Having a common frame of reference and range of experiences has changed my learning into a richer, deeper, more powerful community learning experience."

Rebecca L.
What Our Community is Saying

"After 35 years in education, I feel rejuvenated and that I have a new sense of purpose. I will be eternally grateful for Bright Morning. You have been there when I needed you the most and have provided me with immense opportunities for personal and professional growth. I am grateful for Elena and for the dedication of her team to create world-class trainings. I am humbled and blessed to have stretched and grown within the safety of this community."

Andrea M.
What Our Community is Saying

"In my experience, Bright Morning has always provided relevant, applicable, 'just-in-time' tools that have enabled me to build my practice on solid ground. My Bright Morning Membership has been the silver lining of my year. This offer has paid off exponentially. All learning experiences have added a new layer of understanding for me. Now that I’ve experienced the benefits of a year-long membership, I really can’t imagine going back to a 'once-a-year professional development' approach."

My favorite part of being a Bright Morning member is participating in a supportive community dedicated to learning. I am enjoying the connections with professionals across the country in a variety of roles. We are able to be risk-takers together in role-plays, which help strengthen the new skills. I feel empowered and excited after every session. My colleagues have shared observations in my growth as a coach and facilitator. My membership has been an investment in myself professionally and personally.

My favorite part of being an All-Inclusive Bright Morning member is the opportunity to access so many workshops in community with others, and a bank of resources to work through alone. It has been rigorous and invigorating!

As an Instructional Coach, my Bright Morning membership helped me deepen my coaching skills and stay energized. My favorite part of being a Bright Morning member is getting to learn with amazing presenters and other coaches from all over the world. I especially love working with my peer coaches over multiple sessions - sharing our real-life experiences and things we've taken from these learning sessions has accelerated my growth as a coach so much. And I also really value that my membership allows me to schedule PD when it fits my ever-evolving schedule. Plus, there are powerful one-day sessions - shout out to the Transformational Conversation Accelerators!

My favorite part of being a Bright Morning member is the access to the incredible resources associated with our membership. Bright Morning is already generous with the free tools they provide educators and, as a member, there’s even more access. Another favorite part of my membership is that the incredible trainers actually show us how to use the tools in Elena’s books for full impact. I’ve learned so much about myself and my work and have leveled up my skills as both a coach and trainer. This membership is the gift that keeps giving!

As a teacher leader and future instructional coach, my Bright Morning membership has given me access to research-based information and precious learning experiences with the coaches during class. My Bright Morning membership has shifted the way I see myself and the impact my work can have on others and their teaching and learning experiences. It continues to support my personal and professional growth as I dive into the different layers embedded in The Art of Coaching. My favorite parts of being a Bright Morning member are pacing my own learning, as well as all the opportunities to watch and be part of live coaching sessions to extend my learning and strengthen my coaching skills.
