Pitt County Schools will hold the Seventh Annual National Board Certified Teacher Pinning Ceremony today at 4:15 p.m. at the J. H. Rose High School Performing Arts Center.
Earning national certification is no easy course of action for teachers. It is a labor-intensive year-long process. To be eligible, teachers must possess a baccalaureate degree from an accredited institution, have completed three years of successful teaching and hold a valid state teaching license.
Teachers must then provide a portfolio of classroom practice consisting of videotapes, student work samples, candidates’ analysis, and the response to assessment center prompts that are evaluated by at fellow peers that have all completed assessor training by National Board Professional Teaching Standards.
Pitt County Schools will recognize 26 individuals bringing their total number of National Board Certified Teachers to 224.
