Our Training Packages

Boundless Learning offers high quality professional development for teachers which can be implemented independently or combined as more comprehensive packages. These trainings are provided to teachers through competency-based online learning modules called Professional Development Quests (PD Quests). After completing PD Quest activities, teachers are supported by CTE’s Digital Portfolio, which facilitates online coaching, feedback discussions, information exchange and access to multimedia resources.

“The team-centered approach in student-centered learning has given the students a way for them to really own the concept that they’re learning versus just memorizing it for the next day or the test.”- Tiffany Norman, Math Coach, Prince George’s County Schools

Boundless Early Learning

Boundless Early Learning

This offering customizes the Boundless Learning protocols and strategies for Early Learners. Pre-k, K, and first grade teachers learn how to build inclusive Learning Communities along with productive partnerships and groups, laying the foundation for High Performance Teaming and effective progress monitoring.

“I think the format of the lessons is so well structured that the predictability of it has helped students with disabilities be a little more comfortable in the classroom.”- Meighan Hungerford

Boundless Learning Co-Teaching

Boundless Learning Co-Teaching

This offering helps to strengthen co-teaching partnerships so they can provide support for all students, including those with disabilities, in the general education classroom. General and special educators learn how to work together to build a 21st century co-teaching team where each member is clear about the team’s mission, goals and roles. Teachers learn how to effectively co-plan, co-instruct and co-assess so students reach their achievement and behavioral targets.
Explicit Instruction is integrated into Boundless Learning to support all students, including those with special needs—English Language Learners, students with disabilities, and those with other individual learning needs.
“We have a special ed teacher and a general teacher that work together every day in math class, and I think if you were to go into the classroom you wouldn’t know which teacher was which. I don’t even think the students necessarily know which teacher is the special ed teacher, because it is just this wonderful marrying of styles and personalities of the teachers. The students have just absolutely blossomed by being in those rooms with those teachers."- Christine Kernazik, Instructional Specialist, Charles County Public Schools
