21 Horry Co. teachers National Board certified

From Horry County Schools:

Twenty-one Horry County Schools' teachers are among the newest class of 291 teachers from South Carolina to have earned National Board Certification (NBC) in 2012, according to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. HCS ranks third in the State for the number of teachers with this new designation, while South Carolina ranks third in the country in the number of teachers with national certification. To date, 418 HCS teachers have earned this distinction. In addition to the 21 teachers who are newly-named, 12 teachers earned certificate renewals.

Teachers seeking National Board Certification undertake a two-part process that takes from one to three years to complete. The process requires candidates to reflect on their classroom practices, their understanding of subject material and their preparation techniques. In addition to preparing a portfolio with videotapes of classroom teaching, lesson plans, student work samples and reflective essays, teachers must complete assessment center exercises based on content knowledge.
