Every Child Deserves a Great Teacher... National Board Certified Teachers: Better Teaching, Better Learning, Better Schools
National Board for Professional Teaching Standards
National Board Certification is a voluntary assessment program designed to identify great teachers--and make them better. While state licensing systems set basic requirements to teach in each state, National Board Certified Teachers have successfully demonstrated advanced teaching knowledge, skills and practices. This paper discusses the benefits of the National Board Certification to the students, schools and the nation. A list of the recipients of the National Teacher of Year is also presented.
