Congratulatons, to Capital High School's newest National Board Certified Teacher, Mrs. Denise Green!
Approximately 3% of teachers in the United States are National Board Certified. The certificate is based on Five Core Propositions:
Proposition 1: Teachers are committed to students and their learning.
Proposition 2: Teachers know the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students.
Proposition 3: Teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning.
Proposition 4: Teachers think systematically about their practice and learn from experience.
Proposition 5: Teachers are members of learning communities.
The process is long, challenging, and has four components. Teachers must pass a written assessment of content knowledge, reflect on student work samples, video and analyze teaching practice, and show documented impact and accomplishments as a teaching professional. Congratulations, Mrs. Green. Capital High School is proud of you!
