My Students

The students at my school are diverse in their academic ability, interests, and emotional needs. By renewing my National Board Certification, I can continue to develop the skills needed to best serve their needs and help them reach their maximum potential.

Our students deserve the best schools, with the best educators, led by the best leaders.

My school has been significantly impacted by past hurricanes and is now impacted by the current Covid-19 pandemic, causing many students and teachers to continue to rely on the local community.

Additionally, many of my students are Exceptional Children and English Learners.

My Project

I will be working towards renewing my National Board Certification in Science-Adolescence and Young Adulthood/Biology. National Board’s Maintenance of Certification allows current National Board Certified teachers to extend their certificate for five years. Maintenance of Certification measures how I, as an NBCT who has demonstrated that I am an accomplished teacher, have continued to grow in my professional practice and have positively impacted student learning. It is designed to support ongoing professional learning and signal demonstration of performance over time, Maintenance of Certification will require me to document my professional accomplishments every five years. I will complete this process by 2023.
