National Board Certification 2018-2019 Introductory Webinar
Interested in pursuing National Board Certification? This webinar will give you information about National Board Certification and how Vermont-NEA supports candidates through the process in all corners of the state. Join many of the NBCT Facilitators and current candidates on May 29th from 7-8 pm to learn about the process and benefits of National Board Certification. Register here.
Vermont added 18 new Board Certified Teachers this year and 20 teachers will learn in December whether they will join the ranks of Board Certification! One common theme with candidates is the value Board Certification had on their practice as educators. If fact, many feel that Board Certification represents the single most valuable professional learning experience of their careers.
Log in information will be sent out a week before the webinar, and the webinar will be recorded.
Feel free to contact Juliette Longchamp with any additional questions at email@example.com.
Reflective Practice and Developing a Peer Review Portfolio
Vermont-NEA realizes we have teachers on the field working on provisional licenses. One path to Vermont Certification is through Peer Review. Vermont-NEA has one class currently in process and intend to have a course in the fall. For more information, please contact Juliette Longchamp at firstname.lastname@example.org.
NEA has entered the micro-credential world, rolling out Micro-Credentials in many interesting topics. To look at the offerings, start an account at nea.certificationbank.com. Vermont-NEA will provide PD Certificates for each microcredential when you have successfully completed them. Each micro-credential should take approximately 15 hours, however, this depends on the background knowledge each participant has on the subject.
NEA Academy offers many free and low cost professional learning in a variety of areas.
