Waukegan, IL. – Two Waukegan Public Schools educators are among the newest recognized National Board Certified Teachers by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).
Last month Ms. Janet Foltz, an instructional support teacher at Greenwood Elementary and Ms. Christina Doll, math teacher at Jefferson Middle School, were among a select number of educators across the country to earn NBPTS certification.
National certification is a special commendation for educators excelling in their fields. Just 12,000 teachers nationwide have achieved NBPTS certification. The prestigious designation follows a demanding, multi-year process, made up of four components.
“Going through the National Board Certification process was important for me because it required me to do a deeper analysis of, and reflection on, all aspects of my teaching,” said Ms. Foltz, who has worked in Waukegan Public Schools since 1999.
The certification process allowed Ms. Foltz and Ms. Doll to learn from, and be critiqued by, other educators.
“National Board certification was an opportunity to have experts critique and offer ways to improve my teaching,” said Ms. Doll, a decade-long math teacher at Jefferson in the GAP program. “Completing the requirements of the components and the feedback from already-certified teachers challenged me as an educator and helped me improve my teaching practices.”
Mr. Foltz and Ms. Doll join four current WPS60 employees with active NBPTS certification, including: Ms. Emily Guinta, Mr. Patrick Cole, Ms. Ellen Pena and Ms. Carol Thompson.
