Three Oxford School District (OSD) teachers earned the highest mark of professional accomplishment by achieving National Board Certification this school year.

Newly National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) are:

Kristen Power
Della Davidson Elementary School
Fourth-Grade Math and Science Teacher
She has worked in the education field since 2009 and as an Oxford School District teacher since 2010.

Jackie Leopard
Della Davidson Elementary School
Third-Grade Language Arts and Social Studies Teacher
She has worked in the education field since 2007 and as an Oxford School District teacher since 2007.

Brittney Tolbert
Oxford Elementary School
Special Education Teacher
She has worked in the education field since 2010 and as an Oxford School District teacher since 2010.

To date, the Oxford School District has 50 National Board Certified Teachers in the district. While teacher licensure systems set the basic requirements to teach in each state, completion of National Board Certification signifies that teachers have voluntarily gone much further.

According to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards schools with NBCTs have strong professional communities focused on leadership, learning and collaboration. These schools are characterized by higher rates of teacher morale and retention and increased community involvement.

“The National Board Certification is the highest credential a teacher can earn,” said OSD Assistant Superintendent Bill Hamilton. “These teachers become more skillful in daily classroom instruction and student assessment in order to improve student learning: they have developed and demonstrated the advanced knowledge, skills and practices required of an outstanding educator.”

National Board Certification is available nationwide for prekindergarten (pre-K) through 12th-grade teachers. To be eligible to apply for board certification, a teacher must hold a bachelor’s degree, completed three full years of teaching or school counseling, and have a valid state teaching or school counseling license.
