A voluntary process established by NBPTs, certification is achieved through a rigorous, performance-based assessment that typically takes more than a year to complete and measures what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do. This process requires teachers to demonstrate how their activities, both inside and outside of the classroom, improve student achievement. The application process includes submitting portfolio entries and passing examinations.

  1. The NBPT is not an easy certification. It takes hundreds of hours of work and in many ways makes the task of getting a Masters look like child’s play. These educators are to be commended for their personal time, effort and dedication to their present and future students as shown by completing this rigorous process.


  2. We’re proud to say that our son, Tm, and his sister, Anne, have both been re-certified after having been certified for the previous ten years. Tom teaches 3rd grade at Lynnwood Elementary School; Anne teaches Spanish at Mason Middle School in Tacoma. They were joined by their sister, Susan, who was only recently certified; she teaches Sciende at Kamachin Middle School in Tacoma. Thanks for the opportunity to brag a bit!!!
