UW-RF Offers Teacher Board Certification Course

Teachers who are interested in pursuing certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards can learn about the standards and requirements in an introductory graduate course offered by UW-River Falls this October.

The course, "Introduction to National Board for Professional Teaching Standards and Certification," will be offered October 17-18, beginning at 4 p.m. on Friday at the Somerset High School.

This one-credit graduate course will provide information on the certification process and will assist teachers in deciding if this is the right time to seek certification.

Along with the course, participants can receive ongoing support from instructor Karla Jenkins, a National Board Certified Teacher and a Wisconsin Master Educator. The support program will provide valuable feedback and assistance from peers to ensure that teachers present their skills in the best possible light.

Participants in the support program can earn up to five additional graduate credits or enroll on a non-credit basis for a reduced fee. Cost for the introductory course is $269 for Wisconsin residents and Minnesota residents with reciprocity. Contact the Outreach and Graduate Studies office for registration forms and additional information, at 715/425-3256 or 800-228-5607 or visit the web site at www.uwrf.edu/outreach.
