Jason Jacobs joined Morningside Center as a staff developer in 2019, and has been a teaching artist in NYC schools for over 12 years. He thrives on creating experiences for youth to express their whole selves, find their voices, develop their leadership skills, and raise critical consciousness -- through disciplines of storytelling, movement, performance, and writing. Working with Education at Roundabout, he’s led professional development to help teachers develop engagement strategies and activate project-based-learning in their classrooms. He has also written curriculum for arts and ELA. Jason is a stage director and playwright, with a B.A. from Yale and M.F.A. in directing from Columbia.
Laurine Towler, staff developer, started working with Morningside in 2018. She is also a teaching artist in theatre for Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts, Lincoln Center Theatre, The Roundabout Theatre Company, and Symphony Space, where for decades she has tried to bring a social justice lens to her teaching, whenever possible. Long interested in restorative practices, Laurine is delighted to have found her way to Morningside. Laurine is a professional actor and holds a BA in History from Stanford and an MFA in Theatre from the University of California, San Diego. She is also an activist.
