Two more Richland One teachers have earned the gold standard of the profession— National Board Certification.

Meadowfield Elementary School teachers Emma Bell and Sara Suber join 202 others in the district as National Board Certified Teachers (NBCT). National Board Certification is the highest credential available in the teaching profession.

Created for teachers by teachers, the certification is the public assurance of the most impactful teaching outcomes. Those who receive the distinction complete and pass a computer-based assessment and complete three portfolio components: Differentiation in Instruction, Teaching Practice and Learning Environment, and Effective and Reflective Practitioner.

The certification is designed to incentivize the educational enhancement efforts of teachers in hopes of developing and retaining them.

In addition to the two newest NBCT, 20 Richland One teachers earned the National Board’s Maintenance of Certification ( MOC), which is a five-year extension from their current certificate’s expiration date. MOC ensures teachers are current on the knowledge and best practices in their certificate areas.
