National Board certification once again becomes a premiere option for teachers who wish to pursue a rigorous professional growth path- Tracy Meloy
Dione Garcia shared with me the excellent news that NSDF’s Grant Committee has once again approved a grant to support teachers who wish to pursue their National Board Certification. With the change in the legislative requirements around certification renewal, National Board certification once again becomes a premiere option for teachers who wish to pursue a rigorous professional growth path in tandem to the other certification renewal requirements. The evidence surrounding the efficacy of teachers with National Board certification also indicates that teachers who are reflective practitioners — people who take the time to think deeply about their instructional practice and how the instructional moves they make influence student learning — make a difference for kids.
Thank you and the NSDF Board for supporting this important work in Northshore. It is wonderful to know NSDF is a partner in our mission to strengthen our community through excellence in education.
