Empower and Engage Students


We support schools in creating standards driven, teacher developed and student owned processes that promote achievement and growth mindsets.

CBE has been extremely helpful in guiding me to transform my teaching to create a student centered learning atmosphere.  Through this process CBE has helped me guide teachers to create student centered classrooms.  Through many hands-on workshops, CBE has guided this transition by helping me understand CCSS and how to use them to create learning progressions, capacity matrices, and data binders.  My students have greatly benefitted from this approach to learning.

Biddeford Primary school is a student-centered school that focuses on personalized learning and growth. Caley Jones has been an integral component in our school’s successes in these areas. Caley has spent countless hours modeling, observing, and shared her expertise. With her shared experiences and knowledge, our students have taken ownership over their learning and celebrate their successes. Creating a classroom that has personalized learning became easier because of Caley. Caley Jones is a excellent resource!

Visible Learning means an enhanced role for teachers as they become evaluators of their own teaching. According to John Hattie, Visible Learning and Teaching occurs when teachers see learning through the eyes of students and help them become their own teachers.

As a Principal at an Elementary school, CBE has been invaluable to the work that my team is doing and to the unification of my staff. Bringing our shared vision of learning for all students into focus. Not only have we developed a shared vision, we have a plan in place to make it a reality. Developing student centered practices, transparent and viable learning pathways and now we are working on aligning our instructional practices. It has been hard work, but both my staff and myself can speak to the support and guidance that Daniel Joseph and his colleagues at CBE have provided us as we look transform our learning for all students.
