Welcome to the Center for Teaching Excellence at Temple University Website
By and large, these groups are hosted by National Board Candidates and National Board Certified Teachers and serve a place to get insight into the process from those who have done it. They are not officially sponsored by the National Board Professional Teaching Standards or Temple University’s Center for Teaching Excellence. Some candidates have indicated that these forums provide valuable information and encouragement (and they can also be a big time-sink, so be careful when budgeting your time for electronic networking!!).
Teachers.net hosts “chatboards,” “chatrooms” and “mailrings” for National Board candidates. Information can be found at: http://teachers.net/.
There are several Yahoo electronic groups for National Board candidates. Some are more active than others, but here are the ones we know about:
If you know of any others or find that one is no longer in operation, please let us know so that we can update our website.
