What National Board Certified Teachers Wish They Had Known

Hear from a select panel of National Board-certified teachers about what they experienced while certifying. Learn what surprised them about the process of becoming a National Board-certified teacher, what they wish they had known before they started, the greatest challenges they faced during certification, and what standing among the best in teaching as a National Board-certified teacher has meant for their career and their students.
