The Education Association of Moore
TEAM Launch is a 4-day workshop that provides support for educators planning to pursue National Board Certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).
National Board Certification (NBC) is a rigorous process through which educators describe, analyze and reflect upon their practice. TEAM Launch, mirrored from the NEA Jump Start, is designed to familiarize participants with NBC and better prepare them for the assessment process.
TEAM Launch, taught by national board certified teachers, is designed to familiarize participants with the rigorous process of NBC and better prepare them for the NBC assessment process; giving the educator the ability to describe, analyze and reflect upon their practice. Participants will become familiar with the foundation, components, and requirements of NBC.
All participants who complete TEAM Launch will be "first-in-line" for the Education Leadership Oklahoma (ELO) scholarship ($1,300) from the Office of Educational Quality and Accountability (OEQA) which subsidizes part of the registration fees for the NBCT process.
**ALSO** TEAM members will not have to use a personal day or the school's professional development days, as TEAM is sponsoring its own special scholarship for TEAM members to cover the cost of a substitute in your classroom on the two Fridays of training.
