ARLINGTON, Va. – September 26, 2019. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards unveiled today a program that recognizes school districts across the country that work hard to promote student learning through accomplished teaching. The National Board Accomplished Districts program will initially honor 81 districts in which at least 20% of its teachers have achieved National Board certification, encouraging teachers to be their best and effectively driving student learning. The 81 Accomplished Districts come from ten states including Alabama, Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, and Washington.
Manson Schools are proud to be among the top districts nationwide being recognized as National Board Accomplished Districts. We know that teachers drive student learning. One of the ways we work to assure students have access to the best teachers is to encourage teachers to become National Board certified.
“High quality teaching is the most important in-school factor impacting student learning. The districts that measured up to be included in the National Board Accomplished District program understand the value of accomplished teaching and support teachers to be their best. We encourage state and district leaders to support National Board certification because NBCTs have a measurable impact on student learning – and what parent anywhere doesn’t want the best possible teacher for their children?” said Peggy Brookins, a National Board Certified Teacher and the president and CEO of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
“Manson School District is proud of all of our professional staff. We are happy to highlight our exceptional group of Nationally Board Certified teachers who have earned this additional rigorous credential.”
Congratulations to our 2018-19 Nationally Board Certified Teachers:
Amy Anderson, Philip Fournier, Jay Fox, Anita Johanson, Steven Nygreen, Andrea Olson-Whitney, Brandy Samson, Susan Sears, Kathryn Sperling, Heather Teague, Cassandra Williams and Keitlyn Watson.
Currently, one additional teacher is working on her certification
