The Component 2 Differentiation Portfolio of National Board Certification has many parts and can be overwhelming at first glance. My goal is to share strategies to help break down this component into manageable pieces so you can grow as an educator and score high.
Professional Development Opportunities
This is Part 2 of a 5-part series on National Board Certification in Chemistry. This post will focus on Component 1 - The Test.
My experience with the National Board Certification process was much like a Hero’s Journey plotline utilized in popular movies like Star Wars. Through my National Board Certification in Chemistry journey, I was able to navigate all the highs and lows to transform into a stronger teacher than I had ever thought possible.
I am already planning for my trip to Illinois in July to attend ChemEd 2019! Let me tell you why I want to attend.
Is your school district providing OSHA required safety training to teachers and other staff that will be in the science labs in your building?
Texas teachers Roxie Allen and Amiee Modic share a few nuggets about BCCE 2018 along with some reasons why you might think about attending in 2020.
When I first started teaching I was very fortunate that a local teacher invited me to a high school chemistry teachers meeting. I was really young and really motivated to be a better teacher.

What do you do when you don’t have any local or affordable opportunities for professional development?
