Who We Are

The New Mexico National Board Certified Teacher Network began in 2001. A group of National Board Certified Teachers and other educational leaders met and envisioned a statewide network of National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) working together to advance the work of National Boards in New Mexico.

What Teachers Should
Know and Be Able to Do

Teachers are committed to students and their learning | teachers know the subjects
They teach and how to teach those subjects to students | teachers are responsible for
Managing and monitoring student learning | teachers think systematically about their
Practice and learn from experience | teachers are members of learning communities

Every student deserves to be taught by an accomplished teacher. National board certification was designed to develop, retain and recognize accomplished teachers and to generate ongoing improvement in schools nationwide. It is the most respected professional certification available in k-12 education.

Our mission is to promote accomplished teaching throughout new mexico. We do this by advocating for leadership opportunities for nbcts, promoting and educating teachers about the national board’s body of knowledge, supporting candidates through the nbpts certification process and celebrating when achievement is attained. By offering opportunities to all constituent groups, we aim to support and recognize all new mexico nbcts in all school districts in the state and at the state legislature.
