Hello to All,
I just found this site. I'm hoping to get some good info from you
experienced certifiers. I am attempting NB certification in AYA/Sci
in chemistry. I teach AP Chem, Chem I, Physics, and Physical
Science. I did a pilot entry last spring. (I was dispppointed to
find out that I only scored a 2.00 on it! I considered tossing the
whole thing but I've already wasted SO much time on it!) I am not
banking that score but will try it again. I am in the last group of
this school year so my portfolio is due on April 15. I'm looking
for any specifics you can give me about the portfolio entries, the
assessment center, or more specifically about the chemistry test.
I am also interested in hearing about your experience. Of the
excellent science teachers that I know, only ONE chemistry teacher
passed the NBs the first time. This really scares me!
