Two teachers from Bowling Green High School, Lisa Correa and Sandra McCoy, have recently earned National Board Certification after completing the rigorous certification process and performance-based assessments. Correa and McCoy are among twenty-one current Bowling Green City School teachers to earn the NBCT distinction.
According to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, “National Board Certification is a voluntary assessment program designed to recognize and reward great teachers—and make them better. Certification is achieved through a performance-based assessment that typically takes one to three years to complete.”
As part of the process, teachers build a portfolio that includes student work samples, assignments, videotapes and a thorough analysis of their classroom teaching. Additionally, teachers are assessed on their knowledge of the subjects they teach.
