Welcoming New Teachers to National Board Certification
Today we welcome Danielle Brown, NBCT, a former host of 3Ps in a Pod, and now the senior manager of candidate experience at the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. She and host Donnie Dicus discuss the changing landscape of education and how the National Board is approaching some of that change.
Brown first shares how her role at the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards combines her passion for National Board Certification with what her work had been at the Arizona K12 Center supporting new teachers before talking about how early career educators can now pursue National Board Certification.
The National Board has updated its policy as the teacher landscape has changed, Brown explains. Allowing new teachers to pursue National Board Certification provides an opportunity for those teachers to reflect on their practice earlier than they may have, rather than getting set in routines that may need to be shifted.
Brown talks about the importance of supporting newer teachers in pursuing National Board Certification both for the benefit to their own practice and impact but also as they more quickly become veteran teachers and leaders.
