    National Board Certification to Marin County Teachers

    MCOE and the Ross School District are partnering to offer a local location for the 2016-17 Marin NBC cohort. The cohort:

    • Provides a supportive, collaborative, learning environment
    • Certificate groups are led by National Board Certified Teachers
    • Teachers learn to describe and analyze their practice, which results in deeper understanding and improved teaching

    This year, the Ross School District in Marin County has generously offered to be the host site. There are currently teachers from Bolinas-Stinson, Miller Creek Elementary School, Larkspur-Corte Madera, Mill Valley, Reed Union, Ross, San Rafael, and Tamalpais. Teachers meet as a group, attend most Stanford sessions remotely, and only attend a few sessions at Stanford. This enables teachers to collaborate, but not have to drive to Stanford each month.
