National Board Coaching Saturday - Virtual

National Board Coaching Saturday - Virtual

Set aside time to find the guidance you need in your National Board Certification process with a virtual Coaching Saturday.

Coaching Saturdays include informational sessions and time for coaching and focused work time. National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) specifically trained to support you can provide an analytical review of portfolio components, including the video (Component 3), and hold coaching conversations about your practice, as it relates to the requirements established by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).

Candidates will be able to work solo, one-on-one, and/or in small groups, and can participate in a general session to hear updates and information for the benefit of all. An optional breakout session will provide a deep dive into a particular topic and provide a better understanding of the National Board process.

Candidates seeking technical assistance with their video (Component 3) should bring their recordings uploaded on a flash drive or an online sharing platform such as Google Drive.

To make the most of your time at a Coaching Saturday, please bring these items with you:

  • The NBPTS Component Instructions.
  • The NBPTS Standards for your chosen certificate area
  • Any written commentary
  • Evidence: student work samples, teaching artifacts, videos, etc.


Whether you are a first-time or continuing candidate, this day is for you. Registration will close two weeks before the event to ensure that you are placed into a group to best meet your needs.

As a participant, you will:

  • Reflect on and complete individualized goals.
  • Write commentary produced in collaborative and/or quiet environments.
  • Identify new goals as a result of analytical reviews of National Board for Professional Teaching Standards components and coaching conversations with Board-certified teachers.
  • Understand components and information from the National Board.
  • Develop a sense of accomplishment for having participated in an engaging and collaborative work time.
