National Board Recertified

First-grade teacher Jenny Larsen was recognized by the D103 Board of Education this month for renewing her National Board Certification. 

The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards is recognized as the "gold standard" in teacher certification. The certification believes higher standards for teachers means better learning for students. By attaining National Board Certification, teachers demonstrate that they are highly accomplished educators who meet high and rigorous standards through intensive study, expert evaluation, self-assessment and peer review. 

“Congratulations and thank you, Mrs. Larsen, for renewing your National Board certification and raising the bar for teaching and learning. You are helping to create a climate of professionalism and excellence for our student population by providing the skills needed to succeed” said Dr. Scott Warren, D103 superintendent. In total, the district has 12 National Board Certified teachers.
