2021 National Board Certified Teachers
Congratulations to our National Board Certified Teachers
Posted on 02/23/2021
At the February 24 school board meeting, we celebrated five teachers who received or renewed their teaching certifications with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

National Board Certification is an advanced teaching credential that is valid for five years. First time certification represents over 400 hours of work, including the creation of a comprehensive portfolio and a rigorous test.

Teachers with new certifications this year:
  • Michelle Sotelo, Central Kitsap High School
Teachers renewing their certifications this year:
  • Sarah Cole, Hawk Elementary at Jackson Park
  • Koni Mohland, Silver Ridge Elementary School of the Arts
  • Jessica Bender, Ridgetop Middle School
  • Janet Groulik, Fairview Middle School
Congratulations to these fabulous teachers!

If you are a Central Kitsap teacher but have not recently updated your National Board profile, we might not know about your certification. Please take the time to check your profile and let us know if you recertified so we can celebrate you too!
