North Kitsap School District is proud to announce the following teachers who have earned the highest credential available to American educators by recently becoming a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT) through the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

Deborah Deerwester – North Kitsap High School

Certified in Early Childhood Education through Young Adult, Library Media

Kelly Krantz – Poulsbo Elementary School

Certified in Early and Middle Childhood, Literacy:  Reading and Language Arts

Colleen Fairchild – Suquamish Elementary

These teachers join the 29 current teachers in the district who have National Board Certification.  National Board Certification is achieved through a rigorous, performance-based, peer-reviewed assessment of a teacher's pedagogical skills and content knowledge. The certification process takes one to three years to complete.  While licensing standards set the basic requirements to teach in a state, NBCTs demonstrate advanced teaching knowledge, skills and practices similar to the certifications earned by experts in law and medicine.
