To all NB
Congratulations on your decision to pursue your NB
certification! As you are finding out, it is an arduous process, but well
worth it in the end.
Many people seem only to look for mentors in their
specific area of specialization. When I was working on my portfolios, I chose
to work with four mentors - two in my area and two outside of it. I
appreciated the different viewpoints of four very supportive and intelligent
colleagues whose advice I totally respected.
Working with mentors
outside my area made my writing much more specific. Since we sometimes
assume the person reading our work has the same background we do, we don't
always explain things adequately enough. The mentors outside of my field
questioned things that I felt were obvious. However, this prompted me to
write in such a specific way that anyone would be able to understand the
points I was trying to make. Due to the space restrictions we are given, my
writing became much more concise and I felt the end product was enhanced
P.S. I am available to read for Florida candidates
in any discipline/grade level.
