Oldham County Schools is pleased to announce 10 OCS teachers achieved National Board Certification in December. National Board Certification is a voluntary, advanced teacher credential that can take several years to complete. During the process, teachers are reviewed by peers, analyze teaching methods, and develop strategies inside and out of the classroom to improve student success. Teachers submit videos and essays, as well as student work, to show their methods. Finally, they must pass an exam to demonstrate mastery in their chosen content area. Less than 3% of the nation’s teachers are nationally board certified.
“I am constantly amazed at our teaching staff and the dedication they demonstrate every day to their students and their profession,” said Superintendent Greg Schultz. “This year’s National Board Certified Teachers exemplify excellence in the midst of the challenges of teaching during a pandemic. I am extremely proud of their accomplishment.”
