December 18, 2018

MADISON -- Wisconsin has 102 teachers, one of them from the Jefferson School District, who achieved five-year certification through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards this month, putting the state among 12 nationwide with more than 100 new National Board Certified Teachers for 2018.

In addition to those earning new board certification, Wisconsin has 42 teachers who renewed their national accreditation. Those who received national certification before 2017 have a 10-year credential. The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards ranks Wisconsin 19th among states for the number of teachers with national certification. Overall, Wisconsin records 1,184 teachers with national board certification.

The successful Jefferson School District teacher was Sarah Schnuelle of Palmyra for her skills in Literacy: Reading-Language Arts/Early and Middle Childhood.

“Congratulations to those earning or renewing national board certification,” said State Superintendent and Governor-elect Tony Evers. “Through this rigorous process, these educators demonstrate dedication to their students, communities and profession. This transformative investment in professional development has demonstrated benefits for our kids. That is why we included a strategy in our budget to close gaps based on national board certification.”
