WL Director Receives National Board Certification

World Language Director, Catherine Ritz, was awarded National Board Certification in Early Adolescence Through Young Adulthood/World Languages, with a specialty in French on Saturday. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards requires teachers to go through rigorous examinations and develop a portfolio demonstrating that they meet high standards for excellence in teaching.

Teachers must demonstrate:
1) A strong command of content;
2) The ability to design appropriate learning experiences that advance student learning;
3) The use of assessments to inform instructional decision making; and
4) Partnerships with colleagues, parents and the community.

Catherine completed her portfolio and assessments last spring, and received her scores this past weekend.
