It takes 400 hours and up to three years to complete, but studies say it’s well worth the effort for a teacher to earn certification through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
Two teachers in Kansas recently
received the certification: Deborah Abernathy of Olathe and Arthur
Ballos of Wichita. They join some 500 other teachers across the
country who received the designation, “the highest professional
credential they can earn,” according to a news release.
process of board certification is similar to how a doctor becomes
certified in a special area,” said Alvin Peters, director of
Emporia State University’s program, said. “This is voluntary –
no state, school district, or program is demanding them to go through
ESU's program assists teachers working
toward national certification.
Certified teachers benefit their
schools and “studies have shown NBCTs improve student learning,”
the release said.
