Fairfield, California September 11, 2017 — National Board Certification is the teaching profession’s mark of accomplished practice. The more than 112,000 teachers who have achieved Board certification demonstrate their ability to teach to profession’s highest standards. Pam Williamson, a teacher at Early College High School, recently joined 271 of the most accomplished teachers across the United States in Chicago, IL to help set the National Board performance standards across 25 certificate areas.
National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) collaborated in groups according to their National Board certificate area/specialty. Each group of NBCTs dedicated one to two intensive days to assist the National Board in setting the performance standard indicating accomplished teaching for part of the content knowledge component for their particular certificate area.
