2009 class of NBCTs advances nation's school-quality reform movement

NBPTS continues its progress in advancing the National Board Certification education-reform movement with today's announcement of nearly 8,900 new National Board Certified Teachers. The announcement brings the total number of accomplished teachers and school counselors certified by NBPTS to more than 82,000. An "extraordinary group" is how Secretary of Education Arne Duncan referred to this year's class of National Board Certified Teachers in a September interview with NBPTS. Read more.
“What if every child had a chance to be taught by a National Board Certified Teacher? I think the difference it would make in students’ lives would be extraordinary,” said Secretary Arne Duncan. “As we move forward on this turnaround agenda nationally, I would love for National Board Certified Teachers to be at the forefront of that movement.” Copy that :)
I'm proud to belong to the Class of 2009 NBCTs!
