Local teacher earns national certification

MARINETTE —  Susan Peterson, seventh-grade literacy teacher at Marinette Middle School, took part in a pinning ceremony at the Governor’s residence in Madison June 25, along with other teachers from the state of Wisconsin who earned their National Board for Professional Teaching (NBPTS) certification during this past school year.

First Lady Kathy Evers and State Superintendent Carolyn Stanford Taylor hosted and presented pins to the candidates. National Board Certification (NBC) is a voluntary, advanced teaching credential that goes beyond state licensure. NBC has national standards for what accomplished teachers should know and be able to do. The National Board certifies teachers who successfully complete its rigorous certification process. It is the most respected professional certification available in K-12 education.
