NCSD Board Recognizes Four New National Board Certified Teachers

Four NCSD teachers were recognized at the April 9, 2018 board meeting for earning the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards Certification. The four teachers that accomplished the certification process showed a commitment to educational excellence and are providing their students with the very best educational opportunities. Those four teachers are:

  • Shauna Cannon, a 3rd grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary, certified in English as a new language
  • Erika Moens, a 4th grade teacher at Lincoln Elementary, certified in English as a new language
  • Lisa Sexton, a 3rd grade teacher at Oregon Trail Elementary, certified as a middle childhood generalist
  • Ashleigh Tieszen, a Special Education teacher at Cottonwood Elementary, certified as an exceptional needs specialist

National Board Certification is an advanced teaching credential requiring intense dedication and commitment on the candidates part. Teachers report spending anywhere between 200-400 hours to complete the rigorous process. National Board Certification is achieved upon successful completion of a voluntary assessment program designed to recognize effective and accomplished teachers who meet high standards based on what teachers should know and be able to do. National Board Certification is available nationwide for most preK-12 teachers.

The state of Wyoming ranks 5th in the U.S. for the percentage of Board Certified teachers, and Natrona County School District has 74 Board Certified teachers within their system.

The Natrona County School District Board of Trustees would like to congratulate these four new board certified teachers, as well as all of the district’s board certified teachers, for their tremendous ongoing work and commitment to our students.
