Kannapolis City Schools’ teacher, Sarah Chapman, has 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. Chapman is an Exceptional Children’s teacher at Shady Brook Elementary School. KCS now has 67 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.


Sarah Chapman has been teaching for seven years, and she has spent all of those years in Kannapolis City Schools. She earned a Bachelor’s degree from Marshall University (Huntington, West Virginia), and her National Board Certification is in the field of Exceptional Needs Specialist/Early Childhood through Young Adulthood.


The Kannapolis City Board of Education will honor Sarah Chapman at its December meeting and present her with a certificate of recognition.
