National Board Certification option for NASA Endeavor Educators

U.S. Satellite is working with the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). Endeavor Educators are now able to earn the Certificate in STEM Education, and, at the same time, put their coursework toward meeting all the portfolio requirements for becoming nationally board certified.

"The synergies between NBPTS and Endeavor are remarkable in that both programs help foster the best in teachers," said Karen Woodruff, Director of Curriculum for U.S. Satellite. "Effective teaching is what Endeavor is all about. Working toward board certification is a milestone for Endeavor and something in which we hope many will take advantage."

NBPTS has trained Endeavor staff and alumni to become Candidate Support Providers to offer assistance in the process.
