The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) developed an advanced teaching credential to recognize the most highly-effective teachers across the country. At the end of 2014, there were over 110,000 National Board Certified Teachers in the U.S. and over 2,760 in the state of Maryland. These teachers have undergone a rigorous certification process that lasts anywhere from one to three years. They have met high standards through study, expert evaluation, self-assessment and peer review and have proven their commitment to student learning and making our school better.
