Congratulations to our National Board Certified Teachers!

Four Federal Way teachers were recognized at the Feb. 28 board meeting for earning the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards Certification in 2016. National Board Certification is an advanced program designed to focus on high and rigorous teaching standards.

Congratulations to the following teachers for achieving this certification:

  • Laura Eberle, Olympic View Elementary, Certified in: Middle Childhood, Generalist
  • Stephanie Mateus, Sacajawea Middle School, Certified in: Early Adolescence, Science
  • Tiffany Salvador, Silver Lake Elementary, Certified in: Early and Middle Childhood, Literacy: Reading-Language Arts
  • Marilyn Schumacher, Thomas Jefferson High School, Certified in: Early Adolescence, English Language Arts

National Board Certified Teachers have successfully demonstrated exemplary teaching knowledge, skills and practices. The National Board candidacy process is demanding, and has numerous benefits to students, as teachers become even more self-reflective about their practice and increase subject area knowledge.
