National Board Certified Teachers

Okaloosa is proud of our many National Board certified teachers. This certification is a recognition of highest level of professional achievement for a teacher. Teachers must submit analysis, portfolios and videos of their work in the classroom and maintain rigorous standards in the classroom.

These standards are the heart of the work of the National Board for Professional Standards.  The National Board has developed standards in 27 fields. Standards and certificate fields reflect the development level(s) of the students and the subject being taught (e.g., Early Childhood/Generalist, Adolescence and Young Adulthood/Mathematics, Early and Middle Childhood/Art.)

The developmental levels are Early Childhood (Ages 3-8), Early Childhood through Young Adulthood (3-18+), Middle Childhood (Ages 7-12), Early & Middle Childhood (Ages 3-12), Early Adolescence (Ages 11-15), Adolescence & Young Adulthood (Ages 14-18+), Early Adolescence through Young Adulthood (Ages 11-18+), and Exceptional Needs (Ages 0-21+).
