NTL Candidate Testimonials
“I am loving the Nurturing Teacher Leadership support program for National Board Certification candidates. In our small certificate-alike cohort today, we shared strategies that worked for each of us in meeting the level 4 rubric descriptors. I have learned so much from awesome colleagues from all across the district that I never would have met were it not for this NBC support program. I value them almost as much as my mentoring team. These relationships are SO important and have broadened my reach and my learning community. Thank you Quest Center.”
