H-BR teacher earns certification

Published: Wednesday, Feb. 6, 2013 5:30 a.m. CST

Kirsten Kubala, a teacher at Hinckley-Big Rock Middle School recently became a National Board Certified Teacher through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

National Board Certification is achieved through a rigorous, performance-based, peer-reviewed assessment of a teacher’s pedagogical skills and content knowledge. The certification process takes one to three years to complete. While licensing standards set the basic requirements to teach in a state, NBCTs demonstrate advanced teaching knowledge, skills and practices similar to the certifications earned by experts in law and medicine.
