December (2017) Shades Mountain wishes to congratulate Mrs. Gurganus on her most recent accomplishment of becoming a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT), Early Childhood Generalist.  The process to achieve certification is voluntary, extremely rigorous, and requires a minimum of one year. During this time a teacher works on four separate components centered on five propositions.   The portfolio of work submitted is quite extensive, but all components are centered around how each and every part impacts students and how to personally improve educational methods to best benefit students. 

National Board Propositions: 

  1. Teachers are committed to students and their learning.
  2. Teachers know the subjects they teach and how to teach those subjects to students
  3. Teachers are responsible for managing and monitoring student learning
  4. Teachers think systematically about their practice and learn from experience.
  5. Teachers are members of learning communities.
