National Board Certification is an assessment that is an unparalleled professional learning experience. The framework for all National Board Standards are based on the following principles that outline what students need and parents want for their children:
Teachers who genuinely care about their students, and are committed to their growth, learning and well-being.
- Teachers with deep content knowledge, subject matter experts with a passion for teaching those disciplines effectively as well as creatively.
- Teachers with full "tool bags"-the multiple skills, strategies and resources to deal with the demands of delivering instructions, encouragement, assessment and consistent follow-through to classrooms filled with increasingly diverse learners.
- Teachers who have developed the habit of reflection, who use today's successes and glitches to build better lessons for tomorrow. Teachers who approach teaching as a true profession, building communities to increase student learning, share and improve teaching practice, and contribute to the professional knowledge base.
Becoming a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT)® is difficult work; it involves risk and a great deal of intensive effort. But, it is on the cutting edge of a realistic movement to restructure the profession of teaching.
