Kannapolis City Schools’ teacher, Amanda Overcash, recently achieved certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS). Certification from the NBPTS is the highest professional credential in the field of teaching. Ms. Overcash teaches kindergarten at Woodrow Wilson Elementary School. KCS now has 72 teachers certified by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

 

National Board Certification is a voluntary process established by the NBPTS. Certification is achieved through a rigorous performance-based assessment that takes nearly a year to complete. Teachers must document their knowledge of their subject matter, provide evidence that they know how to teach their subjects effectively to students, and show their ability to manage and measure student learning.

 

Amanda Overcash has been teaching for nine years, and she has spent all those years in Kannapolis City Schools. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education from UNC Charlotte, and her National Board Certification is in the field of Generalist—Early Childhood.

 

The Kannapolis City Board of Education will honor Amanda Overcash at its February meeting and present her with a certificate of recognition.
