Faculty and Superintendent’s Day Meetings

Would you like a Teacher Center representative to come to your school for your next faculty meeting, conference day or staff development meeting to make a presentation about the National Board Certification program?

Call your local New York State Teacher Center to request a faculty presentation and we will schedule a site visit, bring materials and tailor our presentation to your specific needs and time frame. National Board Certified Teachers are available for informational presentations on the history, processes and services offered through the Teacher Center in order to support teachers who are interested in pursuing National Board Certification. The Teacher Center may also be able to assist you in beginning or locating a National Board Support Group near you.

These NBPTS Publications may help your stakeholders better understand the rigorous National Board Certification process.
