CHHS teachers receive board certificationPosted January 22, 2013 at 4:47 PM, Filed Under: Front Page, Schools, Village Mill
Clover Hill High School history teacher Hunter Clark is one of six Chesterfield County Public School teachers to recently achieve National Board certification, bringing the total number of National Board-certified teachers in Chesterfield County to 100.
The certification is considered the gold standard for excellence in teaching and is based on completion of a voluntary assessment program designed to recognize effective and accomplished teachers who meet high standards based on what teachers should know and be able to do.
As part of the certification process, candidates complete 10 assessments that are reviewed by trained teachers in their certification areas. The assessments include four portfolio entries that feature teaching practice and six constructed response exercises that assess content knowledge. Certification is valid for 10 years.
Swift Creek Middle School history teacher Pamela Rockenbach Plahs renewed her 2003 certification.
