National Board Certified Teacher Candidate Support (NBCT)
The Jacksonville State University Regional Inservice Center provides mentors who work with small groups and individuals to support National Board candidates within its region each year, depending on available funding. Teachers who are interested in going through the NBPTS process or interested in renewing certification are invited to join us monthly from 5-7:00 p.m. CST (dates subject to change – full schedule below) at the Inservice Center room 1229.
Meetings will be devoted to breaking down the individual components and helping candidates think like an NBCT. We will use group activities to help you and become familiar with the vocabulary and terms that will be helpful as you head towards certification. Writing workshop days will allow you to work on the writing portions with mentors to offer feedback and support.
