National Board Certified Teachers Impact on Education
The National Board Certification was designed to develop, retain and recognize accomplished teachers and generate ongoing improvement in schools nationwide. It is the most respected professional certification available in K-12 education and is a voluntary, advanced teaching credential that goes beyond state licensure. National Board Certification focuses on national standards guiding what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do. The National Board certifies teachers who successfully complete its rigorous certification process. The NBPTS Certification is the highest professional distinction available in education. It benefits students, teachers, and school systems by advancing the quality of teaching and learning.
