Educators across the nation can achieve National Board Certification by successfully completing a voluntary assessment program “designed to recognized effective and accomplished teachers who meet high standards based on what teachers should know and be able to do” as described by the NBPTS. During the certification process, candidates complete ten assessments that are reviewed by trained educators in their licensure areas.

A total of 1,244 educators from across the state are in the 2011 class of newly-certified National Board teachers. North Carolina boasts the largest number of National Board Certified teachers in the nation, a total of 19,193.
