Gina Wilson, secretary of the MI NBCT Network, presented National Board Certification at the Michigan Department of Education Office of Professional Preparation Service's Winter Conference. The presentation gave district, state, and school administrators information about how to use National Board Certification to increase student achievement, strengthen professional development, and address building- and/or district-specific school improvement goals.
Michigan NBCTs sat on several panels throughout the day at the Elevating and Celebrating Teachers and Teaching in Michigan Event. Several NBCTs served on the planning committee that brought ECET2 to Michigan for the first time! Part of the convening included celebrating teachers that had achieved National Board Certification in the state. It was a great event for NBCTs all around!
