National Board Certification Program for Teachers


Certification of teachers by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is achieved through a rigorous program of professional growth and development. Teachers voluntarily choose to participate in the process, which requires deep self-reflection and analysis of one’s own practice. The process includes intense assessment of a teacher’s knowledge and the actual demonstration of skills and professional judgment as applied daily in the classroom. Achieving certification is a demonstration of a teacher’s practice as measured by the highest and most rigorous standards. National Board Certified teachers improve the quality of education by demonstrating a high level of leadership to their peers and having higher expectations of their students.
