If you are a K-12 teacher and are thinking about becoming a National Board Candidate and need a mentor and/or advice on the process. Please feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Just under 3% of teachers in our nation are Nationally Board Certified. It is an challenging process, but really rewarding!! Hang in there and press forward. The first year I tried for it, I missed it by 3 points. The next year I tried again and earned my National Board. In many ways, it was more challenging than grad school. I really loved the process because it really helped me to reflect on my teaching. Best of luck to any new candidates out there!! Stay safe and teach on!! :o)
