National Board Teachers Renew Certification!

October 28, 2011

Krista VanderLeest, science teacher at Springfield High School, and Sara Oehlert, 1st grade teacher at Iles School, were notified today that they met the standards for renewal of National Board Certification set by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). Teachers who achieve National Board Certification have met rigorous standards through intensive study, expert evaluation, self-assessment and peer review. In order to be renewed, each teacher had to demonstrate evidence of comprehensive professional growth in a variety of areas over time.
Congratulations on renewing your National Board Certification!
