The Power of Coaching for National Board Certification Candidates

We know it can be frustrating that many teachers struggle to earn National Board certification on their first attempt. Wouldn’t it be nice to have guidance and support from someone that has been there and done that while working towards your National Board certification?

In this webinar, we discuss the impact good coaches can have helping National Board candidates successfully earn their certification. You’ll learn more about why many candidates fail on their first attempt to certify, how coaches increase the odds of success, what the relationship between coach and candidate can look like, and hear the biggest piece of advice a coach would give to a teacher considering National Board certification. This webinar is ideal for teachers looking to start National Board candidacy with a little extra support in their corner.
