NBCNY's Featured NBCT
Gary Samuel Bogle
..."Currently, instruction, which is predominantly linguistic and mathematical intelligences, and high-stakes testing are prioritized over the well being of educators (administrators and teachers) and students. That being said, demonstrating that I am an accomplished (effective) teacher is a prerequisite to being worthy of writing education policy for our nation."..
"I want to support educators who choose to be trailblazers on the road to becoming a NBCT. This is one way that I can improve the teaching profession and the learning for students."
