Since 1999 the Arkansas Department of Education has made it possible for many Arkansas teachers to become National Board certified. Upon receiving certification many educators ask, "What do I do now?"
The answer to this question is an organization dedicated to National Board Certified teachers, candidates, facilitators and other education professionals interested in advancing accomplished teaching in our state.
Two Arkansas National Board Certified Teachers Recognized: President Obama Honors Outstanding Mathematics and Science Teachers
WASHINGTON, DC -- President Obama recently named 108 mathematics and science teachers as recipients of the prestigious Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching. This year’s awardees represent all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, U.S. Territories, and the Department of Defense Education Activity schools. The educators will receive their awards at a Washington, DC, event later this summer.
The Presidential Award for Excellence in Mathematics and Science Teaching is awarded annually to outstanding K-12 science and mathematics teachers from across the country. The winners are selected by a panel of distinguished scientists, mathematicians, and educators following an initial selection process done at the state level. Each year the award alternates between teachers teaching kindergarten through 6th grade and those teaching 7th through 12th grades. The awardees named today teach 7th through 12th grade.
I do not know why some are receiving the emails and some are not, but those who are, would you please pass on the following message.
We still show about 450 NBCTs who have not gone into ATLAS and responded to their Assurance Statements.
