Three Edmonds School District teachers have earned their National Board Certificates — Kelly Hui, Meadowdale Elementary; Suzanne Norring, College Place Elementary and Kathryn Webb, Alderwood Early Childhood Center.
National Board Certification involves an extensive series of performance-based assessments that include teaching portfolios, student work samples, videos and analysis of classroom teaching and student learning. Teachers also complete a series of written exercises that probe the depth of their subject-matter knowledge, as well as their understanding of how to teach those subjects to their students. The entire process can take up to 400 hours.
The Edmonds School District has 214 teachers with National Board Certification.
