Below is a message from Stacy Brown to those interested in National Board certification:
Are you curious about National Board certification? Have you already committed to pursuing certification but are looking for support? Are you up for renewal of your certification?
Becoming (and renewing) a National Board Certified Teacher is an excellent way to improve any and all facets of your teaching. It is a reflective process that fulfills professional development in many areas. It even allows you to keep and renew your Teaching Certificate without worrying about clock hours, and don’t forget we still have a very nice state stipend for NBCTs!
If you are beginning or continuing your National Board journey, we encourage you to attend a Jump Start event this summer.
Washington Jump Start Events will be held:
- June 25-28 in Pasco
- July 29-Aug 1 in Vancouver
- Aug 5-8 in Auburn
Oregon Jump Start Events will be held:
- July 16-19 in Salem
- July 22-25 in Medford
- Aug 5-8 in Bend
AND we invite you to come to our cohort informational meeting here in the fall.
WHEN: 7:15 a.m., Wednesday, Aug. 28, 2019
WHERE: Olympia High School Choir Room
We facilitate cohorts to support candidates working toward certification, as well as those working toward renewal. This will be a 30-minute informational meeting. We will introduce our trained facilitators, talk about what kind of support we offer in our cohort and explain how the National Board process works. Our cohort is open to both Olympia School District and out-of-district educators.
Review the tentative schedule for cohort meetings. You will receive notification soon with a live link and information on how to register.
