""National Board Certification is a symbol of teaching excellence across the country. My eCoach has allowed our Professional Teaching Development Center to build a true virtual learning community, united through our belief that National Board standards and assessment activities shape highly accomplished teachers and educational leaders. Our Accomplished Teaching and Leadership Team is one- of- a- kind, in an effort to offer a model of collaboration that results in increased learning for kids. I'm thankful to Barbara Bray who brought my vision to life!""
