I was stoked to find out that a National Board Certified Teacher from New Mexico, Michelle Felis Accardi has been named as director of state policy and advocacy for the organization. Her statement,
“It’s an honor to be associated with an organization that has set the bar for what it means to be an effective teacher,” said Accardi. “I look forward to creating partnerships with state and local agencies in an effort to expand board certification and other NBPTS initiatives throughout the country – all to benefit our nation’s students and communities.”
It appears that Ron Thorpe may be exactly the right leader for the future of the NBPTS.
This is what the future of accomplished teaching looks like, and it is hopeful.
