18 more VB teachers earn certification; total number is up to 159

February 19, 2019

It’s considered to be the most respected professional certification in K-12 education, according to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

 

And, it takes anywhere from three to five years to complete.

 

Now, 18 more teachers from Virginia Beach City Public Schools have achieved National Board certification.

 

These 18 additional honorees bring the division’s total of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCT) to 159, the fourth highest in Virginia. Nationally, the Commonwealth ranks ninth in terms of the NBCT.

 

What makes this certification unique is that it was created by teachers to demonstrate what accomplished educators should know, and, be able to do.

 

In order to achieve certification, candidates are required to demonstrate their mastery of content knowledge; provide a portfolio demonstrating how they differentiate instruction, based on student needs; provide videos of their teaching in action; and, submit a portfolio, demonstrating evidence that they are effective and reflective practitioners.
