More than 5,400 Teachers Achieve National Board Certification in North Carolina, Increasing Total to More than 118,000 Board-Certified Teachers Nationwide. With 25 NBCTs in Newton-Conover City Schools.

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards celebrates 5,470 new National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) and another 3,957 Board-certified teachers who successfully renewed their certification. These teachers join a growing community of Board-certified teachers, now more than 118,000 strong across all 50 states.  Each of these accomplished educators earned the profession’s highest mark of achievement through a rigorous, performance-based, peer-review process, demonstrating their proven impact on student learning and achievement.

During the week of January 8, Educators across the country will celebrate all Board-certified teachers with #TeamNBCT week.

The research is clear: Teaching is the most important school-related factor that determines student success. More than a decade of research confirms that National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) positively impact student learning. That’s why education leaders across the country are advocating for new ways to bring accomplished teaching – and by extension, improved student learning – to scale using National Board Certification as a foundation for job-embedded, relevant and engaging professional learning.

With collaboration and commitment from the school district, N-CCS is growing in numbers of accomplished teachers, are using the National Board certification process to examine and strengthen their teaching practice. This work is critical to the long-term success of our schools and to elevating the teaching profession.
