Five Core Propositions Applied
Amanda Klare, NBCTApril 10, 2018

For those of you who are at the beginning of your journey to become a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT), you are about to become very familiar with the foundation of National Board Certification: the Five Core Propositions. Since I started my love affair with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, I have started to associate people from my professional learning network with each of the Five Core Propositions. I always say, “You are what you surround yourself with,” and lucky for me I am surrounded by amazing teacher leaders to strive to be like. Proposition 1: Teachers are…

Connecting with other NBCTs provides the support that Teacher Leaders Need
Jennifer Dines, NBCTSeptember 4, 2019

Like many National Board Certified Teachers, I am proud to say that I serve in multiple teacher leadership roles in my school and within our district. My most demanding responsibility is serving as the leader of our school’s brand new Literacy Committee. Our school-wide instructional goal for the 2018-19 school year was to increase the number of grade-level readers in our building. And we did – increasing from 2.7% of students reading at grade level to 21.3%. This accomplishment took a lot of blood, sweat, and tears; our team was allotted 25 paid hours throughout the year to analyze data,…

Why Pronouncing Students’ Names is Important to Building Relationships
Ambereen Khan-Baker, NBCTAugust 12, 2016

The beginning of the school year is a stressful period: teachers readjust to their school schedules, master new curricula, set up classrooms, learn new policies, and, finally, meet a new group of students.  The last part is most important to me, because it connects to the first step of the Architecture of Accomplished Teaching (AAT). That step is “knowing your students.”  Who are your students?  What are their needs?  Knowing your students also means learning how to say their names. Pronouncing students’ names correctly conveys important messages: I care about you, I accept you, and you are important to me.…

Passionate About Teaching
Jada Reeves, NBCTAugust 6, 2018

This past year was my 15th teaching.  The group that was entering my fifth grade class had been a challenge ever since they entered the school.  I did not let this interfere with how I was going to teach them. This group of students ended up being one of my favorite groups.  During the school year, I was even chosen as teacher of the year for my school. I went on to compete at the county level and was chosen as my county’s teacher of the year. In June, I was selected as one of the top five finalists for…

Educators as Explorers – Developing a “Deeper, More Discerning Matrix of Understanding”
Jennifer Burgin, NBCTSeptember 22, 2017

“I’m about to say something that requires you to be mature. Can you handle it? I know you can.” “I saw a blue-footed booby!” I proclaimed. “It did a special dance to show off its blue feet to a potential mate as if to say, ‘Hey there, I have bright blue feet which means I’m very healthy and we should lay eggs together!’ and then it pushed back its tush and raised up its sweet head and honked as a sign of interest!” The rising 1st and 2nd graders all burst into contained giggles, attempting to keep the promise of…
