What’s Here It’s official–I’m a National Board Certified teacher! Only those who have attempted the process themselves can understand the amount of pride (and relief) that accompanies that declaration. I certified in the 2005-2006 school year on my first go around, and it was by far the most challenging accomplishment of my career. I am honored to share my experiences and hopefully help out those who are undergoing the NBCT process.
Getting Started Many candidates get hung up working on entry 4 and spend a lot of time on it when other work can be done. Many mentors suggest starting work on Entry 4 first. But, in my opinion, until you begin to understand the Standards and the purpose of the entry, it is really a hard one to work on. If you are just starting your National Board journey, it is good to spend time now gathering information and thinking about what you have done and what you might want to do more of or differently in the upcoming school year. It doesn't even hurt to start gathering documentation.
