A Technology Education Teacher's Road to National Board Certification
Colelli, Richard
Technology and Engineering Teacher, v71 n2 p17-20 Oct 2011
Every public school teacher's professional career will eventually come to an end, but the natural process of reflecting on one's career will last the rest of his/her life. When that time arrives to reflect, the author would like to have good memories and extreme pride of accomplishment both for himself and his students. As most people know, success for their students' academic careers takes many hours of hard work and dedication. Dedication to profession can be defined by each individual teacher. If a person desires to become a teacher, he/she should have an innate desire to dedicate his/her life to that profession. The author believes that a dedicated professional teacher takes pride in the importance of his or her craft and continually makes strides to improve. This includes discovering new methods of teaching and practicing various learning experiences relevant for students. Applying to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards would help the author achieve an ultimate goal of becoming a better teacher. One of the core goals of the NBCT is to assist teachers in bettering themselves through the process of self-reflection. In this article, the author discusses how to be successful in attaining national board certification.
