STANFORD - Four Lincoln County teachers made the grade this month, receiving national teacher certification after a year of classes, assignments and tests.
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards certified the four teachers after they demonstrated "content proficiency as well as instructional competency," said a NBPTS press release. "NBPTS certification is a year-long, voluntary, performance-based assessment that signifies a teacher has met challenging professional teaching standards."
Those recently certified are:
Terrie Ralston, a special education literacy/strategies consultant in 16 counties. Ralston has a degree in vocational rehabilitation, elementary education, and special education with eight years of experience.
Jeanette Litton is a primary teacher at McKinney Elementary School with degrees in elementary education and instructional leadership. She has five years of experience.
