Shoreline Schools Recognized for High Percentage of National Board Certified Teachers

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards recently recognized Shoreline Public Schools as one of 81 school districts in the country with at least 20 percent of its teachers having achieved National Board certification.

Shoreline has 90 National Board Certified staff (listed below).

National Board Certification is a methodical, thought-provoking process for teachers to increase their understanding of the art of teaching while demonstrating the skills and characteristics of excellence in education.

The lengthy application process is an extensive series of performance-based assessments that includes teaching portfolios, student work samples, videos and thorough analyses of the candidates’ classroom teaching and student learning. Teachers also complete a series of written exercises that probe the depth of their subject-matter knowledge, as well as their understanding of how to teach those subjects to their students. The entire process can take between 200-400 hours.
