When the Journey Is Its Own Reward: Supporting National Board Candidates

By Joy Zimmerman


This knowledge brief is premised on the recognition that the certification process of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is a powerful form of professional development and likely to result in improved teaching–especially when coupled with appropriate candidate support.

Distilling information from seven diverse candidate support programs, the brief will help professional developers see what goes into effective support.

For teachers, this publication offers a clearer sense of what the certification process entails–in commitment and benefits–and the kind of support they might hope for.
