In November 2009 I posted that I was waiting for my National Board Certification test results. http://pollyannapollyanna.blogspot.com/2009/11/national-board-certification.html Obviously, I passed, since I'm writing about my renewal submission 😃
Last week I submitted my renewal portfolio to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. My initial certification expires in 2019 (10 years), but we're given two years to renew our certifications in the last two years of our current certification.
Now I wait --again-- until November 2018 to see if I've achieved renewal of my certification from 2019-2029. I got lucky, too, by mere timing ...
Beginning in 2021, NBCTs will be required to demonstrate their knowledge and skills every five years.
... I'll have 10 more years of being a NBCT instead of only five. And I'm certainly glad about that!
Previous renewal candidates report the PPG process takes 30-40 hours.
Library Media/Early Childhood Through Young Adulthood NBCT in New Jersey. There's no monetary or status benefit in NJ to being an NBCT other than my own continuing education. (Compare, for example, that there are 696 Library Media/Early Childhood Through Young Adulthood NBCT listed in North Carolina because that state compensates the achievement.)
