Ambereen Khan-Baker, NBCTFebruary 8, 2017

Recently re-released, What Teachers Should Know and Be Able to Do articulates the National Board’s Five Core Propositions for teaching. Similar to medicine’s Hippocratic Oath, the Five Core Propositions are held in common by teachers of all grade levels and disciplines and underscore the accomplished teacher’s commitment to advancing student learning and achievement.

Jewel Mitchell, NBCTDecember 7, 2016

American teachers are gifted multi-taskers. We, who conduct stealthy paper-grading sessions in the middle of staff meetings and keep at least two internal conversations going at all times.

Vision

This Vision Keeps us Focused From our founding in 1987, the National Board’s mission has been to advance the quality of teaching and learning through a voluntary advanced certification.

Teachers, administrators and others who work to support best practice in our schools should embrace that vision to rethink the trajectory people follow to become accomplished teachers. Getting that path right, and making sure all teachers follow it, can strengthen our shared understanding…
