Why National Board Certification?

Why National Board Certification?

Students learn more. 
A decade of research shows that students of Board-certified teachers learn more than their peers without Board-certified teachers. Studies have also found that the positive impact of having a Board-certified teacher is even greater for minority and low-income students.

Teachers improve their practice. 
Board Certification allows teachers to hone their practice, showcase their talent in the classroom and demonstrate their dedication to their students and their profession.

Demonstrate a commitment to excellence. 
Schools with National Board Certified Teachers are characterized by better teacher morale and retention and increased community involvement.
