Clinton High School teacher Charlotte Walker is an inaugural member of the Mississippi National Board Certified Teacher Network Executive Board.
The Mississippi NBCT Network held its first Learn and Lead Conference recently at Hinds Community College’s Muse Center in Pearl. Among the day’s activities, the NBCT Network members elected the inaugural members of the executive committee.
“We are thrilled to have Mrs. Walker on the committee,” said Kelly Riley, executive director of Mississippi Professional Educators, the organization that sponsors the Mississippi NBCT Network. “She is a firm believer in National Board Certification’s impact on an educator’s professional growth and student achievement.”
Walker earned NBCT in Social Studies-History/Adolescence and Young Adulthood in 2005 and renewed in 2015.
The Mississippi NBCT Network promotes professional learning opportunities for and advocacy by Mississippians who are National Board Certified Teachers. The National Board of Professional Teaching Standards approves networks in individual states to identify opportunities to broaden the influence of NBCTs and expand their influence to reform education.
As a member of the executive board, Walker will help develop the Network’s priorities and program activities for the coming years. She is one of six teachers elected from across the state and will serve a two-year term.
“We are proud to have Mrs. Walker representing Mississippi teachers, and we are proud to call her an Arrow,” said Clinton High School Principal Brett Robinson.
