Exploring National Board Certification

Teachers declare National Board Certification to be the best opportunity for professional growth they ever experience. Many districts offer stipends for those who achieve National Board Certification. The process requires intense analysis and self-reflection. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards modified the process so that teachers, counselors and librarians have up to three years to complete the components. Candidates can now pay for each individual component and the price has been reduced.  Attendees learn about the process, eligibility, cost and time considerations, and how to apply National Board Standards to their work.  Attend this session to experience thinking like a candidate.
Current National Board Certified Teachers are invited to attend to learn about changes in the certification process and how they can become involved in supporting candidates. 
$10 for Missouri NEA members, $60 for non-members.
6 to 8 p.m. Light supper served.
