Cardinals' Nest | Congratulations to Mr. Getchell (World Languages) and Mr. Mack (Math) for earning their National Board certifications. OUTSTANDING!
Students learn more. A decade of research shows that students of Board-certified teachers learn more than their peers without Board-certified teachers.
- Studies have also found that the positive impact of having a Board-certified teacher is even greater for minority and low-income students.There are many great reasons to become board-certified with NBPTS
- Teachers improve their practice. Board Certification allows teachers to hone their practice, showcase their talent in the classroom and demonstrate their dedication to their students and their profession.
- Demonstrate a commitment to excellence. Schools with National Board Certified Teachers are characterized by better teacher morale and retention and increased community involvement. Districts and schools that want to drive student learning recognize the power of Board certification and are taking steps to empower and raise the status of accomplished teachers."
