Three Daviess County Public Schools teachers have earned designation as National Board Certified Teachers by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is an organization that is dedicated to improving schools and student learning by strengthening the quality of those who teach. The board sponsors a National Certification Process that measures a teacher’s practices against high standards of excellence. This involves an extensive series of performance-based assessments that includes teaching portfolios, student work samples, videotapes and a thorough analysis of the candidates’ classroom teaching and student learning. Teachers also complete a series of written exercises that explore the depth of their subject-matter knowledge as well as their understanding of how best to teach these subjects to their students.
