Alabama NBCT Week

The Tuscaloosa City Schools is celebrating Alabama Nationally Board Certified Teacher Week March 6-10 by honoring NBCTs in Central Elementary School. 

Research shows students of Board-certified teachers outperform their peers in other classrooms on achievement tests, and that schools and districts with a high concentration of NBCT’s see marked improvements in school culture, collaboration and teacher retention.

"I chose to pursue Nation Board Certification to improve my instructional techniques to ensure my students would be receiving the best education available," says NBCT candidateNBCT , Haley Morris. 

Other current or in-progress NBCTs at Central Elementary School are Brenadette Bruce, Laurie Coleman, Angelia Nixon, Telecia Strong, and Folante Perry.

The Alabama NBCT Network helps NBCTs across the state support certification candidates, work to improve education in local schools and across the state, and to discover places of leadership in our profession. 

The network's goals include the following: to provide a connections between Alabama teachers and NBPTS and between Alabama NBCTs and to provide a support system for NBCTs as they support candidates, share ideas and concerns, work to improve our schools, and seek leadership positions.
