"I know the process of working on my National Board certification made me a better teacher. It developed in me a more systematic way of thinking about my teaching and established the commitment to better know and understand my students. The most important lesson I learned from National Board certification, though, is the importance of being a reflective practitioner, something I have carried with me from the classroom and use daily."
