National Board Certification is the most respected professional certification available in education and provides numerous benefits to teachers, students, and schools. Today, 3Ps in a Pod host Donnie talks with four educators from Litchfield Elementary School District about how they have structured and grown their support for National Board Certification candidates to, in turn, better support students.

Joining us from Litchfield Elementary School District are New National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) Sarah Beyer; National Board candidate Norma Coria; and Allison Paterno, NBCT, and Miriam Wilson, NBCT, two National Board candidate support providers.

Miriam and Allison share about the support they received when they were going through the National Board Certification and how that inspired them to build out more support for others in their district. They reference how both COVID and the Arizona K12 Center’s National Board Academy pushed them to be creative in how they provide support. They share the ways support can look, including providing time for candidates to work on their components and stipends for NBCTs in the district.

All four share about why they pursued National Board Certification, and they reflect on the impact the process has had on them as individual educators and on students and their district.
