National Board Certification is an advanced teaching credential that has been recognized by the National Research Council as having a profound positive impact on student learning, improving teaching, and making schools better. To earn this distinction, teachers must meet rigorous teaching standards that involve in-depth study, self-assessment, peer review and expert evaluation in their subject area. National Board Certified teachers help students develop the necessary skills to thrive in school, in the workplace, and global economy.
