In nearly two decades as a principal in Massachusetts, RBT has been one of the best providers of professional development in teaching, learning, and educational leadership. RBT’s focus is on what matters and lasts as evidenced by my own learning about leadership and in observing the growing leadership capacity of administrators in Framingham.

When a district implements multiple RBT programs, it results in a system-wide culture of continuous improvement of teaching and learning.
The results include:
- Shared images and common language for high-expertise teaching practice
- Supervision and evaluation based on growth and student impact
- Culture of continuous adult learning
- Elevation of student learning
- Continuous improvement based on the relentless use of data
- Inexorable pressure to collapse the Achievement Gap
- Integration of high-expectations with cultural proficiency and rigor
In dozens of districts across the country, our impact has been sustained through rigorously trained In-District Instructors (IDIs) whom we have prepared to teach our courses and modules at a high level of proficiency and whom we continue to support annually with materials, curriculum updates and frequent check-ins.
