Our Difference is Our Strength
Amy Andersen, NBCTFebruary 6, 2018

When I was seven years old, my mother took me with her to a sign language class two nights a week. I remember immediately connecting with signing and practicing all the time – I loved those classes. Things changed once I entered grade school. I started playing the flute and the more I practiced, the better I seemed to get. Although that instant connection to signing never left, my focus became music and I committed to becoming the best I could be. By high school, I was going to Philadelphia every weekend for private lessons and woodwind quintet rehearsal, even…

What About Authentic Appreciation All Year Long?
Jessica Cuthbertson, NBCTMay 6, 2016

It’s Teacher Appreciation Week. That one week a year when social media explodes with gratitude for educators across the country as we collectively #ThankATeacher. A week when we pause to appreciate the profession that makes all others possible.   On Tuesday, May 3, the official Teacher Appreciation Day, I joined five other National Board Certified Teachers from across the country and Peggy Brookins, CEO and President of the National Board, for the mother of all teacher celebrations — the recognition of the National Teacher of the Year, Jahana Hayes, by President Obama at the White House. The event was filled…

Staying Close to Home to Increase Impact
Daryl Comery, NBCTJune 6, 2017

I am a product of Donaldsonville, Louisiana. That’s where I went to school, it’s where I played football and basketball and it’s where I learned about life’s ups and downs. It’s still my mother’s home. I have spent 12 of my 17 years as an educator in Donaldsonville including serving now, as the principal at Lowery Middle School. Lowery is the school I attended as a preteen and It’s great to give back to my community. But it’s a challenging community. We struggle with poverty and crime far more than pedagogy. So, this is a story of an educator being…

Ban the word “Parents”
Joanna Schimizzi, NBCTAugust 24, 2016

This school year, I want to challenge you to ban certain words from your vernacular. We each have our own set of words and phrases that are taboo in our classroom, like “stupid” or “I can’t”, but this year I want to challenge you to stop using the word “parents”. This may sound like a strange request – don’t we want parents to be engaged in our classrooms and schools? Absolutely, but I want to challenge you to realize that many of our students live in settings where “parents” are not the only figures who are important to their success.…

The Moral Imperative of Voting – Civic Education Begins at Home
Jana Bryant, NBCTOctober 30, 2018

Recently, my young adult children informed me that there are two “taboo” topics that shouldn’t be discussed around the kitchen table or at family gatherings: politics and religion. So, if politics isn’t discussed at these events, then when are future young voters getting the opportunity to engage in purposeful conversation with their peers, their families, and other community members to become informed in local politics? According to the Center for Information and Research on Civic Learning and Engagement (CIRCLE) at Tufts University, roughly 50% of 18- to 29-year-olds voted in the 2016 election. However, less than 20% of young people eligible to…

Finding Our Voices
Chris Arenth, NBCTAugust 17, 2017

Through my district’s Teacher of the Year process, I told myself that no one would see the value in what I do compared to the other fine teachers on that stage. I teach PreK, for goodness sake!  People think all we do is play! The other finalists taught AP classes and led outstanding clubs and committees.  However, on the night of the awards ceremony, one of my fellow finalists said something that helped me to see it all from a different perspective. “We all work with kids who choose to learn, we just help them achieve more.  You help your…

Many Hands Make Light Work: Connecting Teachers in Professional Learning through Video Cases
Josh McLaughlin, NBCTMay 16, 2016

“I make the point that you need firstly a diagnosis, an analysis of what the problem is. You need a vision of what a better alternative would look like. And then you need a plan to get there—to go from this to that.” -Sir Ken Robinson In seventh grade, my English teacher, Mrs. Kiesner, asked us to research a Greek god or goddess as part of a quarter-long study of Greek mythology and to prepare a short oral report to share with the class. I chose Atlas, the Titan god of endurance and astronomy, who, as the story goes, had…

Letting go of “We’ve always done it this way” (Part 2 of 3)
David B. Cohen, NBCTJuly 5, 2016

If you want to start with Part One in this series of blog posts, here’s the link, though the sequencing is not essential. Being a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) is a source of pride for me, providing both a sense of professional accomplishment and sense of professional companionship with leaders in my field. The certification process provides us with a shared set of concepts and terms we can use to guide our ongoing learning and the improvement of our practices. Sometimes, the quest for improvement keeps us in comfortable territory, eager to try new materials and lessons that fit…
