National Board Certification
National Board Certification (NBC) is a voluntary process in which accomplished teachers give evidence of having achieved high and rigorous standards specific to their teaching area and level. The primary goals of NBC are to improve teaching and learning and to recognize accomplished teaching. Teachers who participate in the NBC process engage in reflection on their practice using National Board standards, critique their practice in order to improve teaching and learning, and write reflectively and analytically about their work. Candidates complete two kinds of assessments: a classroom-based portfolio of practice and a set of assessment center exercises.
Participants have the option of registering for three graduate credits by participating in two additional class sessions with online follow-up. Those who choose the credit option will register for the course on the first day of the workshop. There is an additional fee ($155.00 per credit) for the graduate credits. To receive credit, you must attend all sessions and complete all assignments.
Mount Mary students, Mary Silva and Cynthia Rouse, recently became National Board Certified teachers. Both students teach in the Milwaukee Public School System.
Mount Mary College has a vested interest in providing the National Board Certification Pre-Candidate Workshop during the summer. Should you be interested in attending an upcoming workshop or learning more about NBC, please contact -
