Hello. This podcast is a little different - more of a request for information. I am currently considering starting the process to become a Nationally Board Certified teacher. In the past there was no incentive in my district to become certified but starting next year they will offer a $4000 stipend to each certified teacher. I am currently in the very early stages of checking out the process. I'm aware it is a process that costs roughly $2500, I should expect to spend somewhere around 400 hours on the process and it is very reflective.
Are you a National Board Certified teacher? What advice would you have for a teacher such as myself that is just starting to look at the process?
If you would like to offer advice or share your experiences please leave a comment on the post for all to read and share or send me an e-mail directly at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks.
