Mrs. VanBylant Receives National Board Teaching Certification!

Congratulation to HCMS Art Teacher Mrs. Laura VanBylant! She has received her National Board Teaching Certification! She worked hard during this year-long process honing and reflecting on her classroom instruction while submitting videos and portfolios for review by the NBTC committee.

“The certification process requires that teachers demonstrate standards-based evidence of the positive effect they have on student learning in alignment with the Five Core Propositions. They must exhibit a deep understanding of their students, content knowledge, use of data and assessments and teaching practice. They must also show that they participate in learning communities and provide evidence of ongoing reflection and continuous learning.” (NBCT Website).

More than 122,000 teachers across the United States have achieved Board certification. Mrs. VanBylant was one of 20 who achieved this honorable status in Henrico County.
