Seven teachers in Francis Howell School District have earned or renewed their status as National Board Certified Teachers, the highest credential in the field of education.
National Board Certified Teachers are accomplished educators who meet rigorous standards. The certification, through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, is a voluntary process in which teachers work to advance the quality of teaching and learning.
Congratulations to Christi Kolath, Becky-David Elementary, for earning National Board Certification.
Renewals were earned by Janet Eubanks, Francis Howell; Diane Fingers, Francis Howell North; Roderick Laughman, Hollenbeck Middle; Katie Mastorakos, Francis Howell Central; Jennifer Miller, Francis Howell Central; and Shelly Parks, Francis Howell North.
FHSD has 106 teachers who have achieved the distinction. Statewide, more than 10 percent of National Board Certified teachers work in the district.
“In FHSD, we are proud to have such a large percentage of our staff obtain board certification, because we know that our outstanding schools are a result of having outstanding teachers and staff,” said Nicole Whitesell, chief academic officer.
