Founded in 1979 by Jonathon D. Saphier, Ed.D., RBT works to strengthen organizational culture and to institutionalize the study of teaching within schools and throughout school districts. Dr. Saphier is co-author of The Skillful Teacher: The Comprehensive Resource for Improving Teaching and Learning – a widely acclaimed resource book in teacher training courses and RBT staff development courses.
RBT consultants are professional educators who draw from their own experiences as former administrators and classroom teachers. They have long-term consulting relationships with school districts across the country and abroad. During the current school year, RBT consultants are providing professional development programs in hundreds of districts.
