Cleveland High School teacher Tina Ambrose is Johnston County’s newest certified National Board teacher.
National Board Certification is a year-long process of self-reflection and growth sponsored by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. The mission of the organization is to advance student learning and achievement by establishing standards and systems for certifying accomplished educators.
Each year many teachers complete the National Board process but fewer than half earn the credential. Johnston County schools employ 256 National Board certified teachers.
