Some teachers will open their NBPTS profile to a message of congratulations, others will have to dust themselves off and think about whether to bank scores and attempt to give it another go.
Either way, in my opinion, any teacher who participates in the process should come out the other side having grown. There are always naysayers and exceptions both good and bad, of course, but going through the kind of self-assessment and close examination of practice that is demanded of the NBPTS certification process no doubt pays dividends.
To those of you who now can post those four letters after your name, congratulations and welcome. For those who read and post here--what has pursuing or earning National Board Certification meant to you, your practice, your students and your school?
