Value for Students

Michael de la Torre, NBCT on National Board Certification, Value for Students

Teachers know the most important part of their job is having a daily impact on students. The standards encompass skills that are effective in all teaching environments, including the most challenging.

Research shows that NBCTs have a greater impact on student learning and achievement than non-certified teachers, with their students outperforming their peers in other classrooms.  Students of Board-certified teachers regularly engage in purposeful learning experiences tied to their unique needs and interests.  As a result, students and their parents increasingly seek out educators who have met the profession’s highest standards.
