PELHAM, Ala. (WBRC) - This week Pelham City Schools celebrated several of their teachers for becoming nationally board certified teachers.
Superintendent Scott Coefield, along with others from the central office, went to each school to congratulate the teachers in person. The teachers also received a new sign to hang above their door, indicating their new achievement.
Certification is a rigorous process that takes most people two years to complete. Teachers are required to take a series of tests and send in videos of them teaching. All of these are scored by the National Board Administration.
“It is a very reflective process for teachers. Really grows them professionally, so we are really excited to have teachers who are going through that process, And we feel like as a board, we really helped out by paying for the application process,” Coefield explains.
Pelham city schools administration says they want to make sure that their teachers know they are proud of all the hard work they put into this.
