Event description

Description

National Board Certification is the gift I gave to myself and to my students. It has bonded me to my profession. It has centered my practice and it has invited me to really know my students.
Crystal Culp, NBCT

Starting on your journey to become a National Board Certified Teacher?

Get a great start on the certification process by attending Jump Start!

Jump Start! is a pre-candidacy program for teachers interested in becoming a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT). The 3 day seminar is designed to provide you with important information about the certification process in a supportive, collegial environment facilitated by experienced NBCTs. You will leave with a clear understanding of the certification process and your own plan of action for completion. Jump Start! has provided thousands of teachers with the initial support they need on this learning journey. This training is open to members of the California Teachers Association. There is no charge for the training, but registration is required. Lunch is provided each day.

Last year, one of the CTA participants wrote: I used to think I would have to do this alone; now I know there are a lot of colleagues who I can work with and the experience exceeded my expectations. I am confident going forward.

The training fills up fast so register now!
