More PGCPS Teachers Earn Prestigious National Board Certification

logoUPPER MARLBORO—Forty-eight Prince George’s County Public Schools teachers have recently earned the highest credential available to educators by becoming a National Board Certified Teacher through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS), ranking PG County among the top five school districts in Maryland and among the top 10 in the nation.

“Achieving National Board Certification requires substantial time, dedication and skill, but the reward comes in the classroom,” said Dr. William R. Hite Jr., Superintendent of Schools. “By helping teachers to hone their craft, the program aids in our efforts to ensure highly effective instruction in all classrooms. I commend the teachers who have achieved this honor and hope they will serve as inspiration to their colleagues.”

Approximately 304 teachers in PGCPS have earned this recognition. PGCPS ranks third in the state, behind Montgomery (693) and Anne Arundel (312) counties, in having the highest number of National Board Certified Teachers.

There are approximately 97,290 teachers nationwide with National Board Certification, roughly 3 percent of the teaching corps. Maryland had a 12 percent increase in the number of educators who received the certification.

National Board Certification is achieved through a rigorous, performance-based assessment of a teacher’s pedagogical skills and content knowledge. The certification takes one to three years to complete.

Prince George’s County will honor its new National Board Certified Teachers in January. A list of teachers is below:
