If you haven't looked into National Board Certification, I highly recommend it. It was a difficult process, but one that was well worth it. I learned so much about myself as an educator and so much about my students. Because of the National Board Process, I engaged in so many activities that I wouldn't normally have been able to be a part of. If you are hesitant about the process, look into the Take One option. If you would like to know more about National Board Certification, please do not hesitate to contact me. I would love to help in any way that I can. Here is a link to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards website as well as a link to my Amazon store where I have a collection of books that I found to be helpful in the process.
