Every educator should welcome the opportunity to demonstrate and provide evidence of HOW, WHEN, WHERE, and WHY their instructional decisions resulted in student learning gains, each and every day.” Intentionally prepare to TEACH, LEAD and SERVE with distinction. Rae Adams, NBCT, 2012 NU NBcentercopyrightversionRA20133

4 Background National University founded NBCT Leadership Center (NU-PTDC; 2004): Network for National Board Certified Teachers graduate degree programs with NBCT standards support for NBCT candidates grants leadership and service opportunities for NBCTs voluntary service to pre-service teachers SCTA Future NBCTs of America Chapter professional development for teachers, schools, districts NBCT faculty, ambassadors, state liaisons NU NBcentercopyrightversionRA20134

5 Common Sense Provide systematic opportunities for aspiring and beginning teachers to be introduced to National Board Standards and the assessment process as part of their teacher preparation program for licensure. If coursework and programs do not provide NBC content, shape options for individuals to pursue. Engage National Board Certified Teachers to serve as mentors and coaches for future NBCTs of America. Provide services that are cost efficient; free to pre- service teachers. Collect evidence of interactions and results on teaching and P12 learning (into, through and beyond induction) NU NBcentercopyrightversionRA20135

6 Intentionally develop Future NBCTs of America “Every child has the right to, and deserves to receive instruction from an accomplished teacher who applies National Standards for the profession, and who produces evidence of student learning gains every day of every year, beginning with the first day on the job, with or without formalized induction services. These accomplished beginning teachers are exceptional role models, recognized with distinction in evidenced based teaching, leadership and service to the profession. These beginners set a goal to earn National Board Certification in their forth year of teaching.” NU NBcentercopyrightversionRA20136

8 Earn a Credential/vs. NB Distinction When you take courses at a university to become a teacher, you are considered a pre-service teacher candidate (you want to earn a preliminary license to teach). You meet accreditation requirements and you pay fees. “NU-NB Distinction Pathway” was shaped to provide VOLUNTARY, supplemental learning experiences for pre-service teachers (service, vs. fees) who desire knowledge about National Board Standards—no fees, no grades, no courses.

13 Just Like Doctors, Lawyers, Architects… Teachers can earn BOARD certification after 3 years of teaching. Not everyone chooses to earn it. Teachers apply, build a portfolio, take an exam and demonstrate evidence that they increase their students’ achievement. NBCT represents a symbol of the highest level of excellence in the teaching profession. National policies and legislation recognize NBCTs parallel Common Core standards for students.
