The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) has developed standards of what constitutes quality teaching in every subject and grade level. National Board Certification measures a teacher's practice against these high and rigorous standards. It is a performance-based assessment process that includes a teaching portfolio, student work samples, videotapes, and assessments of content knowledge. Ninety-three percent of candidates-both successful and unsuccessful-say that the board certification process has made them better teachers. Early studies have shown that board-certified teachers are more capable.

The author is a board certified teacher who has successfully led dozens of teachers through the certification process. The certification process is time-consuming and difficult, and Hopkins years' of experience with the pitfalls and obstacles will help teachers avoid the "If I'd only known" syndrome. Full of insider's advice on time management and planning tips, the book contains numerous worksheets to take teachers through each and every step of the certification process to ensure that no deadlines are missed and that they meet all the requirements for applications, the portfolio, and the content assessments. The book is arranged around the five core propositions of the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards and contains the voices and examples of teachers who have already completed the process.

Martha H. Hopkins (Marty) is Professor of Education at the University of Central Florida. Before joining the university Marty taught Grades 2, 3, 4, and 5 in public and private schools in New Jersey and Florida and coordinated a Title I Math program in Ocala, Florida. She received her Masters of Education degree at the University of Florida and her PhD at The Florida State University. After teaching at UCF for 15 years, she became con-cerned that the methods and materials she was teaching in her undergraduate classes might be out of date. At the same time, the university began to discuss National Board Certification and the implications it would have on its graduate and undergraduate programs. Marty requested permission to return to the elementary classroom for one year to refresh her teaching skills and to apply for National Board Certification. Since returning to the university Marty has immersed herself in National Board initiatives. She teaches several online candidate-support classes, hosts a conference for Florida NBCTs each spring, and is presently creating a teacher lead-ership degree for teachers who want to expand their leadership role while staying in the classroom. Marty and her husband live in Florida. They are avid sailors and enjoy travel-ing through the wine country of California.
