Heard On Our Boards: National Board Recertification
This message was recently posted on our National Board Certification group:
"I have been an NBCT since 2001 and now must begin to think about my recertification.  Has anyone been through this? How does it compare to the initial certification. My state and district do not offer any incentives for maintaining the certification, so I'm not sure if I should proceed, especially as I only plan to teach 5-6 more years."
