Putnam County Schools Celebrates Two New National Board Certified Teachers

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards celebrates its newest National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) for the 2019-2020 school year. Among those include two new Putnam educators.

Congratulations to Putnam’s new National Board Certified Teachers Rebecca Harrison of Conner Street Elementary and Brianne Legg of Lakeside Elementary!

National Board Certification (NBC) is a voluntary, advanced teaching credential that goes beyond state licensure. NBC has national standards for what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do. The National Board certifies teachers who successfully complete its rigorous certification process.

These accomplished educators earned the profession’s highest mark of achievement through a rigorous, performance-based, peer-review process, demonstrating their proven impact on student learning and success.

“National Board Certification is about helping teachers become great, it is about elevating the teaching profession, and it is about helping children achieve at higher rates,” said Peggy Brookins, NBCT, president and CEO of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. “The certification process impacts teaching and learning well beyond an individual teacher’s classroom.”

Congrats PCS NBCTs!
