The Skills Every National Board Candidate Utilizes on Their Journey to Certification

Earning National Board certification is often cited by teachers as the most meaningful, but challenging, professional learning achievement of their careers. How great would it be for prospective candidates to have a clear idea about the competencies National Board Certified Teachers cite as the most helpful to demonstrate during their certification process?

In this webinar, you’ll get the inside scoop on the skills that set certification candidates up for success. Learn why many teachers fail to earn National Board certification on their first attempt, the competencies consistently demonstrated by successful certification candidates, how to define skills teachers often don’t even realize they have, and what teachers can do to build their skills to give themselves the best chance at a smooth journey to certification. This webinar is ideal for teachers deciding if now is the right time to invest in themselves and earn National Board certification.
