New York City Region


The New York City  Region encompasses five borough: Manhattan, Brooklyn, Staten Island, Queens, and the Bronx.  Our goal is to increase the number of teachers who pursue national board certification and facilitators in high needs schools.  In order to reach our goals we have support and partnerships with the United Federation of Teachers Teacher Center, CUNY Lehman, the NYC Department of Education, and Fordham University. This year because of additional grant funding, we are offering many cohort groups facilitated by trained Candidate Support Providers.  If anyone is still interested, we invite new candidates to contact us.  We are also excited to collaborate with the UFTTC and NYSUT to host the Writing institute for candidates. Stay tuned for our Awareness Sessions and end of the year celebrations in NYC.

Candidate support groups will help you throughout your  certification process. Many cohorts meet 1-2 times per month and you will build a relationship and give and get feedback on the components. Research shows that people who are part of a study group have a better success rate of achievement. Go to one, go to all! At this point they are free. Please email any cohort leader for more information.
