Three Additional Fellows Maintained Certification

MOORESTOWN, N.J., Feb. 1, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- The Knowles Teacher Initiative today announced that four of its Fellows achieved National Board Certification, the highest certification available for K–12 educators, in the 2021–2022 cycle.

National Board Certification was designed to develop, retain and recognize accomplished teachers and to generate ongoing improvement in schools nationwide. Using the National Board Standards and the Five Core Propositions as a foundation, National Board Certification identifies teachers who meet those standards through completion of a performance-based, peer-reviewed series of assessment components. Specifically, candidates are required to complete four components. They must demonstrate content knowledge on a computer-based assessment. Additionally, they must submit classroom-based portfolios containing evidence of differentiation in instruction, their teaching practice and learning environment, and their ability to act as an effective and reflective practitioner.

The following Knowles Fellows achieved National Board Certification: 

Additionally, three Knowles Fellows maintained their certification:

Jeff Rozelle, Knowles President and CEO, stated, "Achieving National Board Certification is no small feat. I'm thrilled to extend congratulations to all of the teachers who met the high standards established by NBPTS to achieve or maintain certification. Their commitment to student learning and the teaching profession is truly commendable."

The Knowles Teaching Fellows Program is a five-year program that provides early-career, high school mathematics and science teachers with access to invaluable resources that help them transform into great teachers who make a difference in the lives of students in their classroom, their school and beyond. After completing the five-year program, Teaching Fellows become Senior Fellows who are able to participate in Knowles leadership opportunities throughout the duration of their career. As part of the wide array of benefits available to Fellows, Knowles awards grant funds to pay for expenses related to National Board Certification.

Nationally, more than 130,000 teachers have achieved National Board Certification, including 52 Knowles Fellows.

Killexams : NC teachers continue to lead nation in National Board Certification

North Carolina continues to lead the nation in numbers of teachers who have earned certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, with 486 additional teachers earning the endorsement during the 2021-22 school year.

Data released last month by the teaching standards organization show that North Carolina now has a total of 23,858 teachers with the respected credential, offered by the Arlington, Va.-based non-profit organization. The national certification is a way to recognize the accomplished instruction that is practiced in classrooms in North Carolina and other states while also helping teachers strengthen their knowledge and skills.

RALEIGH — The certification process is based on high and rigorous standards that evaluate teaching practice through performance-based assessments. The ultimate result is improved performance and achievement for North Carolina’s students.

North Carolina also ranks first nationally in the percentage of all teachers who have earned board certification, with nearly one quarter (23 percent) of all teachers in the state holding the certification.

State Superintendent Catherine Truitt said the national board certification is a testament to high quality instruction provided in schools across North Carolina.

“This credential is a tremendous accomplishment that demonstrates classroom and content mastery,” Truitt said. “I want to congratulate these teachers for pursuing career advancement that benefits not only their students, but teachers across the state in elevating the profession.”

Nationally, a total of 130,493 teachers have earned board certification, with North Carolina accounting for nearly 18 percent of all nationally certified teachers.

North Carolina school districts also continue to rank among the top 25 districts nationwide by numbers of new teachers holding national certification, with six districts making the list:

  • 2nd – Wake County Schools (85 new certifications)
  • 4th – Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (59)
  • 17th – Guilford County Schools (tie, with 16)
  • 17th – Pitt County Schools (tie, with 16)
  • 21st – New Hanover County Schools (tie, with 14)
  • 21st – Union County Public Schools (tie, with 14)

Teachers in North Carolina who achieve certification receive a 12% salary supplement to their regular pay. They also are awarded eight continuing education credits (CEUs).

North Carolina supports teachers pursuing national certification by providing low-interest loans to pay the $1,900 assessment fee and three paid release days from normal teaching duties for new candidates to develop their portfolios. Also, the State Board of Education awards a North Carolina teaching license to out-of-state teachers who are employed in North Carolina and who possess the national certification.

Certification by the National Board is the highest credential in the teaching profession, and participation is voluntary. As a part of the certification process, candidates build a portfolio that includes student work samples, assignments, videotapes, and a thorough analysis of their classroom teaching. Certification is currently available to educators in 25 fields.

Killexams : Thirteen schoolteachers win National Board certification

Thirteen Henderson County schoolteachers have earned National Board Certification and 28 more have recertified the credential, the school system said.

The most respected professional certification available in K-12 education, National Board Certification is an optional intensive certification process with extremely high standards for teachers. This winter, Henderson County Public Schools celebrates the educators who have just earned the credential from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and 28 more who recertified their credentials in 2022. The Henderson County School Board will recognize the 41 certified teachers at today's meeting.

With 23,858 teachers in the state with the certification, North Carolina leads the nation in having the most teachers with the credential, according to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. Of the 2,814 teachers who earned national certification for the first time in the 2021-2022 school year, North Carolina topped the list with 486. Currently in HCPS, 168 teachers are National Board Certified. Newly certified teachers here are:

  • Mayra Granados, an ESL teacher at Hillandale Elementary School
  • April Summey, an AIG teacher at Hendersonville Elementary School
  • Rebecca Martin, an Exceptional Children's teacher at Hillandale Elementary School
  • Nicole Conti, a first grade teacher at Bruce Drysdale Elementary School
  • Jennifer Reed, a fourth grade teacher at Bruce Drysdale Elementary School
  • Amber Buehler, an eighth grade math teacher at Apple Valley Middle
  • Tara Hammond, a fifth grade teacher at Hillandale Elementary School
  • Holly Brookshire, a first grade teacher at Hillandale Elementary School
  • Sheri Todd, an Exceptional Children's teacher at Glenn C. Marlow Elementary School
  • Lauren Matoian, an ESL teacher at Clear Creek Elementary School
  • Emilia Smith, a math teacher at North Henderson High School
  • Lindsey Bercume, a physical education teacher at Hendersonville High School
  • Allison Marek, an English teacher at West Henderson High School

Recertified teachers include Kristy Ontko, Holly McMurray, Margaret DeCorah, Jessica Houston, Annah Lord, Natalie Pierce, Amanda Parks, Margaret McDade, Bridget Grant, Heather Godfrey, Katie McCrary, Alison Thompson, Carly Allman, Lucy Joyce, Sarah Swanzy, Patricia Seward, Michael Pruett, Candace Young, Amy Ramsey, Robin Atwell, Stephanie Merrill, Richele Dunavent, Jodie Baker, Andrea Smith, Chad Neuburger, Kimberly Metcalf, Shari Edmisten and Heather Denton.

As a part of the initial certification process, new candidates build a portfolio that includes student work samples, assignments, videotapes and a thorough analysis of their classroom teaching. The rigorous performance-based assessment typically takes one to three years to complete and measures what accomplished teachers and counselors should know and be able to do. To keep certification active, NBCTs must successfully complete a Maintenance of Certification every five years. This 40-60 hour investment requires NBCTs to provide a written commentary describing Professional Growth Experiences in their careers that have significantly impacted student learning and involved collaboration, and illustrate the expectation that the educator has continued to grow professionally since certification.

Killexams : Bipartisan support for teacher bonuses based on national board certification, not teacher evaluations

OKLAHOMA CITY (KFOR) – Teacher merit pay based on evaluations does not get love from Oklahoma lawmakers, but a bonus stipend based on national certification gets bipartisan support in the House.

Republican Mark McBride authored HB2558, which would deliver a pay bonus stipend from $3,000 to $5,000 depending on the total years of being certified. The bonus would be earned each year on top of the minimum salary for five years.

“I believe in raising the base pay and allowing teachers to have things like this that they can go through to raise their own pay,” said McBride.

The bill passed through the House Appropriations and Budget Education Subcommittee with unanimous bipartisan support.

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is the certification that would be required to earn the stipend.

“I don’t know in the education system how you actually come up with some kind of merit based that that works,” said McBride. “But we can have individual programs like a board certified teacher or other things that deliver you a bonus, a stipend if you complete their program.”

It takes two to three years to complete your certification.

“It is rigorous, it’s challenging, and it’s rewarding,” said Claudia Swisher.

Swisher is a retired teacher and spent nearly 40 years in Oklahoma classrooms. She said there are four components teachers go through in order to get certified.

Teachers take multiple choice tests and get evaluated in the classroom on video.

After five years, teachers go through a maintenance training which requires additional hours of writing, analysis, and videotaping.

“I know now I have held my practice up to the very highest standard in the nation,” said Swisher, speaking about the certification.

3,128 Oklahoma teachers have received their certification, according to the NBPTS website, and there are 145 candidates in Oklahoma right now.

The bill differs from a proposal by State Superintendent Ryan Walters because his proposal was based on teacher evaluations done in each district.

“Those who know how to play the game, those who know how to suck up to their local administration are the ones who will take advantage of it or will who will see the results of that close relationship they might be maintaining with an administrator,” said Andy Fugate, Democrat from Oklahoma City.

McBride’s HB2558 has bipartisan support because Democrats see it as a more equitable way of rewarding teachers.

“This process is far different because the evaluation and the effort, quite frankly, is being monitored by a third party national organization and a board of individuals who help a teacher become better in the classroom,” said Fugate.

Killexams : Teachers recognized with state certification

Going beyond the state’s requirements.

That’s how Maggie Hernandez, assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction at Calhoun County ISD, described the accomplishment of two instructors who earned National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certification.

The accomplishments of Fjola Briscoe and Brittney Rothmann were acknowledged by the CCISD school board during its Jan. 17 meeting. They are the only National Board certified teachers in the district.

The certification is recognized as the gold standard, and the board believes higher standards for teachers mean better learning for students. It was established in 1987 and is an independent, non-profit organization working to advance accomplished teaching for all students, according to its website, www.nbpts.org.

“National Board Certification is the most respected professional certification available in education, providing numerous benefits to teachers, students, and schools. The certification process consists of approximately 200 hours of gathering evidence and reflecting on the individual’s teaching practices,” said Hernandez.

Rothmann said it was a huge accomplishment to join the ranks as one of the very few National Board Certified teachers.

“Approximately three percent of teachers nationwide are National Board Certified. There were only 89 new NBCTs in the entire state of Texas this year, and only 0.32 percent of all teachers in Texas have obtained this certification,” she said. “To be a National Board Certified teacher is incredibly special to me. I am so proud to represent HJM Elementary and Calhoun County ISD as one of the few who have obtained this level of achievement.”

Briscoe echoed Rothmann’s sentiment. “Only myself and one other teacher in CCISD hold this certification,” she said. “I am very proud of all the efforts our cohort put forth during this process, and I am proud of myself for reaching this personal goal and accomplishment. It was a grueling time for all of us who attempted the National Board Certification, but with Angela Tullos as our glue, we were able to submit all four components in less than a year.”


A few years ago, CCISD provided information on the Teacher Incentive Allotment and the National Board Certification, as well as information on a National Board cohort, according to Briscoe.

“Being that at the time I was a reading interventionist/dyslexia teacher, I did not qualify for TIA, and therefore I went forward with pursuing National Board Certification through the CCISD cohort led by Angela Tullos,” she said. “Myself and a handful of others started our National Board Certification journey in the fall semester of 2021, and it gave me the ability to demonstrate my professional knowledge and hone my knowledge in literacy.”

Rothmann decided to pursue the certification as well when the cohort was offered.

“This has actually been a personal goal of mine for a long time. I first learned about National Board Certification over 10 years ago when I was teaching in Virginia. A couple of my colleagues were in the process of obtaining certification, and I was intrigued. Unfortunately, the timing just wasn’t right for me to pursue it then,” she said. “I’ve always wanted to seek this certification because I felt it would make me a more reflective teacher and Strengthen my classroom performance.”

CCISD helped with the fees for the four components of the certification, said Hernandez.

The four components are 1: Content Knowledge Test; 2: Differentiation in Instruction; 3: Teaching Practice and Learning Environment; and 4: Effective and Reflective Practitioner.

It took around a year for the teachers to complete the requirements before the exam.

“I joined the cohort in August of 2021, and after careful analysis of the requirements, I started working on the component writings and recording myself teaching before Christmas,” said Briscoe.

Rothmann started the process in May 2021.

“Although candidates can take up to four years to certify, our cohort group completed all four components in one year. I decided in May of 2021 that I was going to pursue certification the following school year. I spent the summer reading, planning, and preparing. We formed our cohort in the fall, and that is when we began the serious work of digging into each component and collecting evidence,” Rothmann said.

It was a challenge for both Briscoe and Rothmann.

“I created my electronic organizational system in January of 2022, and I worked during the evenings and weekends to compile and write my components. The most challenging component was 38 pages made up of written commentary, data, and evidence,” said Briscoe. “I submitted my portfolio in mid-May of 2022 and then focused on Component 1, which is the proctored literacy test. I went to Rosenberg and took my exam on June 1, 2022. It was then time for the long waiting game, as results were not coming out until Dec. 10, 2022.”

Rothmann said without the support of her family, her husband, friends and colleagues, and her cohort, she found it difficult to continue.

“I will admit that it was very difficult at times to keep going. I actually considered quitting when I lost my dad unexpectedly last February. I had gotten a little behind in my writing, and my heart just wasn’t in it at that moment,” she said. “My family, specifically my mom and my husband, encouraged me to continue and complete the process. I made a detailed plan and stuck to it. It took many nights and weekends of nonstop work, but I followed through and completed everything.””


National Board Certified teachers are actually a win for everyone.

Rothmann said the process reminded her of what she does daily in the classroom and that it matters.

“It has strengthened my instructional skills and made me a more reflective practitioner. I have also earned a Recognized designation through the Teacher Incentive Allotment (TIA) program, which will provide a monetary award,” she said. “But my students have a teacher that has demonstrated accomplished teaching at the highest level.”

Briscoe said the certification is a benefit as she works to support the teachers at Seadrift School.

“When teachers are National Board Certified on a campus, it benefits the students greatly because it directly impacts the teacher’s instructional practices. These shifts include adjusting lesson plans and meeting the needs of individual students, using data in new ways to assess student progress and learning goals, and deepening their content knowledge,” she said.

“Teachers by nature are lifelong learners. I continually learn new things, and I try to apply what I’ve learned every single day,” said Rothmann. “A huge part of this process is understanding the Architecture of Accomplished Teaching. It’s all about knowing your students, knowing where to begin, setting appropriate goals, implementing an effective instructional sequence to achieve those goals, evaluating learning, reflecting on the outcome, and then setting new goals to move students forward,” she explained.

Both Rothmann and Briscoe encourage other teachers to go through the process.

“I work with and know so many talented teachers that already demonstrate accomplished teaching every day. I would love to see more teachers in our district pursue this certification and be recognized for the amazing work they already do,” said Rothmann.

“I believe CCISD has a strong cohort foundation to support teachers in their journey. It may seem like an overwhelming amount of work, but with the proper pacing and guidance, it is obtainable for those interested,” said Briscoe. “I want to truly thank CCISD for the ability to complete this career milestone and the financial funding as well to make this goal possible.”

Research shows that children learn better when teachers have a specific type of training – the ‘gold standard’ of National Board Certification.

But dramatically fewer teachers in Alabama achieved that license during the pandemic – slowing the progress of what had been strong growth year over year, according to a state report tracking the impact of increased state funding for incentives last year.

“A student learns one to two months more being in a national board certified teacher’s classroom,” Alabama NBCT Network President Krista Marcum told AL.com.

Beyond becoming a better teacher, board certification has monetary perks, too.

Read more Ed Lab: Some Jefferson County aides surprised by new enforcement of job requirement.

All national board certified teachers who are currently teaching in a classroom earn a $5,000 state-funded stipend, and beginning in 2018, those who teach certain subjects in hard-to-staff schools earn an additional state-funded $5,000 every year.

State lawmakers allocated more than $15 million for the current year to pay stipends and help grow the number of National Board Certified Teachers. Lawmakers began funding annual monetary stipends for NBCTs more than 20 years ago, but the current year’s allocation is the highest funding to date.

The number of Alabama teachers earning National Board Certification dropped to 135 in 2021, according to a report covering the 2021-22 school year. The Alabama Department of Education prepared the annual report for lawmakers ahead of the start of the legislative session.

That annual number is just over half of what it was two years ago.

The state’s 1,700 NBCTs aren’t evenly distributed across the state. Of Alabama’s 139 school districts, 18 districts - most in rural areas - had no NBCTs last year. Another 20 districts had only one NBCT in the entire district. Fifteen districts have two NBCTs.

National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Chairman Travis Bristol said while having one or two NBCTs in a school is good, learning is really only improved for the students in those one or two classrooms.

“To create school transformation, you’re going to need to have a cluster of teachers,” he said, “and that’s something that the state could create some incentives around.”

Alabama’s $5,000 targeted supplement aims to attract NBCTs to hard to staff, high poverty schools.

And while the targeted supplement hasn’t proven to be a magnet, the number of board certified teachers working in hard-to-staff schools and earning the additional $5,000 stipend rose slightly from 151 in 2020 to 156 in 2021.

Authors of the report called the targeted supplement a “wonderful incentive,” but claim only three districts - Huntsville City, Jefferson County and Mobile County moved NBCTs from a “non-failing school to a failing school.”

The number of teachers applying for state-funded scholarships to help with the $1,900 cost of becoming board certified dropped, too, from 332 in 2020 to 251 in 2021. Scholarships were awarded in four of the 18 school districts without NBCTs:

  • Clarke County - 3 scholarships,
  • Macon County - 1 scholarship,
  • Perry County - 1 scholarship, and
  • Phenix City - 3 scholarships.

Decline in interest?

The drop in interest in pursuing board certification was likely due to a number of factors, Marcum said.

“I feel like there was just a lot going on in our state at the time. Elementary teachers were working on LETRS [literacy training], and that was a huge endeavor,” Marcum said.

COVID played a part, too, she added. “I saw a lot of teachers trying to learn how to teach online. It was a lot.”

Alabama’s decline mirrored a national trend.

National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Chairman Travis Bristol agreed there was a lot going on for teachers over the past couple of years.

“People were literally just trying to attend to their children,” he said. “I can imagine that many decided to, instead of attempting to pursue this application that is for them in service of their children, that they were just trying to ensure their children had some of the basic needs.”

He said he believes the numbers of new NBCT candidates will rebound moving forward.

And the latest numbers appear to support Bristol’s forecast. Alabama had 189 newly-certified NBCTs in 2022, according to newly released numbers. The next report will be issued in December.

Killexams : 25 Henrico teachers earn National Board Certification

Twenty-five Henrico County Public Schools educators earned their National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certification in 2022 – more than any other school division in Virginia and all but 15 in the nation.

National Board certification is considered the profession’s highest mark of accomplishment.

They are a very special group of dedicated educators and Henrico is lucky to have them working with students.”

Becoming certified by the national nonprofit group is a rigorous process. Teachers must submit detailed portfolios to be reviewed by their peers. The portfolios include videos of the candidates teaching, documented professional accomplishments, reflective essays and examples of student work. Teachers must also pass an exam relevant to his or her subject and level of instruction.

The teachers will be recognized in a pinning ceremony later this month, along with teachers from the city of Richmond and the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover and Powhatan.

NEW HANOVER COUNTY — New Hanover County Schools has ranked in the top 25 districts in the U.S. with the most nationally certified new teachers in 2021/2022.

Ranked at 21, New Hanover County tied with North Carolina’s Union County with 14 new certifications from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

Five other North Carolina districts also ranked in the top 25. Wake County Schools came in second, with 85 new certifications, followed by Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools in fourth, along with Guilford and Pitt county schools tied for 17th.

Teachers in North Carolina who achieve certification receive a 12% salary supplement to their regular pay and are awarded eight continuing education credits (CEUs).

NHCS’s success mirrors the overall trends of the state; 486 teachers earned the endorsement in 2021/2022, bringing the state’s total to 23,858 teachers. North Carolina accounts for 18% of certified teachers.

North Carolina also ranks first in the percentage of all teachers who have earned board certification, with nearly one quarter of all teachers in the state holding the certification.

Certification by the national board is the highest credential in the teaching profession.

The certification process is based on high and rigorous standards that evaluate teaching practice through performance-based assessments. Candidates build a portfolio that includes student work samples, assignments, videotapes, and a thorough analysis of their classroom teaching.

The national certification is a way to recognize the accomplished instruction that is practiced in classrooms in North Carolina and other states while also helping teachers strengthen their knowledge and skills.

HENRICO COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) - Henrico County Public Schools (HCPS) had more educators certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards in 2022 than any other school division in Virginia.

A total of 25 Henrico teachers received the certification considered to be the highest mark of achievement in the profession. Also, 14 others had their certification renewed, the division announced.

According to HCPS, only 15 national school divisions had more teachers certified last year. They also managed to top larger school systems in places such as New York City, Philadelphia and San Francisco.

"This is one of the largest groups of new board-certified teachers the division has celebrated," said Drew Baker of HCPS' Department of Professional Learning and Leadership, who helps coach teachers through the process. "The part we are most proud of is that many of these teachers began their process during the instructional challenges of pandemic teaching. They are a very special group of dedicated educators and Henrico is lucky to have them working with students."

To become certified, teachers must submit detailed portfolios that are then reviewed by their peers. Portfolios must include videos of the candidates teaching, documented professional accomplishments, reflective essays and examples of student work. Teachers must also pass an exam relevant to their subject and level of instruction.

Later this month, the newly certified teachers will be recognized in a pinning ceremony, along with teachers from the city of Richmond and the counties of Chesterfield, Hanover and Powhatan.
