National Board Certified at last!

Dreams do come true. I am now a National Board Certified Teacher! I got the result from the NBPTS website just 30 minutes ago. My NBPTS profile webpage says:


Congratulations! You are a National Board Certified Teacher®!

I am pleased to inform you that your performance met the standard for National Board Certification® set by the board of directors of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards® (NBPTS®). Please accept my personal congratulations on your achievement. The certificate, a symbol of your accomplishment and the status you have achieved, should reach you sometime after February. We hope you will display it with pride.

To achieve National Board Certification, a candidate must earn a total weighted scaled score that equals or exceeds 275. Your total weighted scaled score, exercise scores and weighted exercise scores are shown on your score profile. Information that describes the criteria used to score candidate responses can be found in the Scoring Guide located on the NBPTS Web site.

The American Council on Education (ACE) now recognizes the National Board Certification process as comparable to graduate level coursework. As a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT), you are now eligible to request a transcript from ACE that recommends you receive up to nine semester hours of graduate credit in education. You can find more information about requesting a transcript for graduate credit on the NBPTS Web site.

I am confident that this achievement marks the beginning of a long and productive relationship between you and NBPTS. In virtually every case, achieving National Board Certification signals the start of a new, exciting phase in an educator's professional life. As a National Board Certified Teacher, you have the opportunity to play an active role in charting the future of American education.

You can expect to be sought out by candidates, administrators, media, education organizations and professional associations for your insights on the certification process and other education issues. NBPTS is prepared to help you share information about National Board Certification with your colleagues. Your name will be included among the list of National Board Certified Teachers that is posted on the NBPTS Web site, so please keep your information current in our records. We look forward to your active involvement in the years to come as our work to integrate National Board Certification in American education continues.

On behalf of the NBPTS Board of Directors and staff, I extend our best wishes for your continued success.

With warm regards,

Joseph A. Aguerrebere, Ed. D.
President & CEO
