Value for Teachers
Pursuing Board certification has many other benefits, including the opportunity to become part of a larger network of accomplished teachers shaping the profession. During the process, candidates reflect on best practices and find immediate classroom applications of what they’ve learned.
Many states and districts offer financial incentives, including bonuses or raises, for educators who achieve Board certification. NBCTs are recognized across the nation because they’ve met the highest standards set by the profession. School and district administrators often look for NBCTs when making hiring decisions and identifying educators to serve as leaders in their schools.
