We combine DreamBox with great instruction and differentiation in the classroom. We can see growth in every single student because DreamBox is providing them the opportunity to fill in some of those holes so they can access grade-level content sooner.

Catherine Castillo

Math Coordinator


Castillo believes that teachers have been able to embrace new technology and teaching practices because the change has been gradual, and everyone has had access to DreamBox and other tech tools. As she says, “The schools that weren’t 1:1 yet used DreamBox in their computer labs, which enabled them to ease into this new tool for teaching and learning.”

New teachers participate in a DreamBox PD session to get familiar with the basics. They’re also encouraged to take advantage of webinars and DreamBox’s data-driven, embedded MyFlexPD™ modules to deepen their content knowledge in mathematics in ways that are relevant to their students’ specific learning goals and challenges. Some schools have learning coaches or numeracy coaches who hold weekly or biweekly meetings with teachers. Castillo also served as a hands-on coach, meeting with teams of teachers to assist them in their DreamBox implementation, data planning, and data interpretation.

“All of this PD has really allowed us to meet teachers where they are,” says Castillo.
