When a teacher becomes National Board certified, it’s a statement that they teach to the highest standards in the field. Renewing their National Board certification allows teachers to demonstrate their professional knowledge and reinforce their dedication to their students and their career. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards has announced that 4,786 teachers have successfully met these standards to renew their National Board Certification in 2019. These teachers continue to be among thousands of National Board certified teachers who are a part of this country’s education system focusing on ensuring that every student has access to an accomplished teacher.

Join the National Board and the National Board Resource Center at Illinois State University in celebration of these educators and the 283 of those who teach in the state of Illinois! Learn more at nbpts.org.
