Five Clinton teachers join with 4,786 teachers across the United States to renew their certification as a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT).
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is excited to celebrate these teachers along with the more than 20,000 teachers currently pursuing Board certification – seen as the profession’s mark of accomplished teaching.
Clinton teachers who renewed their National Board Certification include Terri Curtis at Sumner Hill Junior High School, Lora Little at the CHS Career Complex, Amanda Kimbrell and Landa Strum at Northside Elementary, and Myra Kinchen and Deedra Salters at Clinton Park Elementary.
“This announcement is cause for celebration because thousands more teachers have shown that they teach to the highest standards in the profession. Research makes clear that the 122,000 NBCTs teaching in our nation’s schools have a significant impact on student learning. Students of all backgrounds are the beneficiaries. The future becomes brighter as we all work towards an accomplished teacher for every student, in every classroom, across the country,” said Peggy Brookins, NBCT, President and CEO of The National Board.
“Teachers who go through the National Board Certification process strive to meet the National Board Standards for accomplished teachers to have a positive impact on student learning,” Curtis said.
The National Board is at work across the country, helping set the expectation that all teachers should demonstrate accomplished teaching via National Board certification and become leaders in their schools and communities. Every child should have the opportunity to learn from an accomplished teacher.
