NATIONAL BOARD CANDIDATE
In the 2014 - 2015 year I began the process of achieving my National Boards Credentials. This has a profound effect on the classroom for me as a teacher but your students and our school. To find out more information you can click this link: http://www.boardcertifiedteachers.org/
Value for students
Teachers know the most important part of their job is having a daily impact on students. The standards encompass skills that are effective in all teaching environments, including the most challenging.
Research shows that NBCTs have a greater impact on student learning and achievement than non-certified teachers, with their students outperforming their peers in other classrooms. Students of Board-certified teachers regularly engage in purposeful learning experiences tied to their unique needs and interests. As a result, students and their parents increasingly seek out educators who have met the profession’s highest standards.
Value for Schools
Schools with many National Board Certified Teachers have strong professional communities, focused on leadership, learning, and collaboration. The culture of the school benefits from the common language of the National Board Standards, which centers discussions on professional practice and student learning. These schools are characterized by higher rates of teacher morale and retention and increased community involvement.
The presence of NBCTs also demonstrates the school’s commitment to excellence to students, parents, school boards, school districts and others. With increasing evidence about the positive impact of National Board Certification on student achievement, schools benefit by having NBCTs in their classrooms.
