Nineteen teachers in San Diego Unified schools earned national certification this year, more than triple the number of teachers who met the standard last year, according to the district:

The dramatic increase — among the best in California — comes as a result of far more San Diego teachers preparing to meet the highest national standards of their profession as NBCT’s — National Board Certified Teachers. … San Diego’s large gain eclipsed this year’s record 8.6 percent increase in the U.S.

The news brings the total of nationally-certified teachers in San Diego Unified to 166.

To gain national certification, teachers submit a portfolio of classroom teaching, documented in videos or student work, and take tests gauging their subject knowledge. Nationally certified teachers may be eligible for a pay boost in some school districts, and can more easily find work in other states, according to the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.
