Washington Teachers Earn National Certification
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards recently announced that six teachers from the Washington School for Comprehensive Literacy have achieved National Board Certification. Those teachers are Kathy Gueldenzopf- Grade 1, Mandy Metropolis-Grade 4, Kathryn Meyer-Reading Specialist and Literacy Coach, Amy Schulze-Grade 5, Erin Spaeth-Reading Recovery and Early Reading Intervention, and Mark Zielinski-Special Education.
National Board Certification is achieved through a performance-based assessment that typically takes one to three years to complete. While state licensing systems set basic requirements to teach in each state, National Board Certified Teachers (NBCT's) have successfully demonstrated advanced teaching knowledge, skills, and practices.
