"Working with CBMP
is true empowerment!
I feel like a professional because I’m looking at the assessment anchors, I’m helping to adapt the curriculum, I’m drawing on my experience, I’m drawing on my education, and coming together to talk with other professionals. The process really forced me, as the teacher, to look at the concepts and how I could get those concepts through."
