Congratulations to the BCS National Board Certified Teachers who recently received their certifications or re-certifications.

National Board certification is a rigorous, one- to five-year process that enables teachers to use the latest evidence-based methods for making their classrooms more engaging and successful. Buncombe County Schools ranks 18th in the nation for the number of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs). In 2019, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards named BCS a National Board Accomplished District, as more than 20 percent of teachers held the advanced teaching credential.

“It was tough, but the process made me a better educator,” said Pisgah Elementary School Title I Specialist Sara Moore. “I can better assess where my students are and get them what they need. And I’ve found different, research-based ways to teach them. It really makes you look at the profession and why you’re doing what you’re doing. It was totally worth it.”
