The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, the organization that sponsors National Board Certification, advocates for the advancement of student learning and achievement by establishing standards for certifying accomplished educators.
National Board Certification is the highest credential in the teaching profession and is achieved through successful completion of a rigorous performance-based assessment.
Candidates create a portfolio, which includes student work samples, assignments, videos, and a thorough analysis of classroom teaching. This voluntary and self-reflective process truly tests the capacity of educators to meet the needs of their diverse learners.
