Kenneth Huff, NBCT from Williamsville CSD in Western NY was nominated by an NBCT colleague to be our NBCNY Featured NBCT because he  believes in transformational leadership through NBCTs.

"Education is constantly in a state of flux. However, we cannot let a changing landscape and what is hard get in the way of what is right. The beneficiaries of our leadership are our students, the future citizens of our society. Leadership is key in successful transformation in education. We can turn our expectations for a better tomorrow into actions that make a difference for our students. Leadership is important for us as NBCT’s because it is a mechanism that we bring to the various components of transformation in education in ways that will improve K-12 teaching and learning."

Congratulations to the 51 New NBCTs in New York State and the 85 NBCTs who maintained their National Board Certification by demonstrating accomplished practice and improving student learning.  They accomplished this during a pandemic.  Thank you to all the facilitators, family and friends that supported them on this professional journey!! 


The Albert Shanker grant was established to defray the costs of National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS)* certification to eligible New York State public school teachers.
