National Board Certified Teachers

Thirteen Hanover County Public Schools (HCPS) educators recently achieved national board certification meeting the highest standards established for the profession. Their accomplishment accounts for nearly 10 percent of all new national board certified teachers in the commonwealth in 2018. Five additional teachers also renewed their certifications.

HCPS employs 80 national board certified teachers which represents 5.6% of all Hanover educators. The national average is less than three percent.

“I applaud our teachers on their outstanding achievement and their commitment to educational excellence. Their accomplishment will directly benefit our students and further support our ongoing efforts to provide high-quality instruction,” said Dr. Michael Gill, superintendent.

The following teachers attained certification:

  • Caroline Bare, Hanover High School
  • Holly Barr, Chickahominy Middle School
  • Leah Beard, Cold Harbor Elementary School
  • Erica Creasey, Atlee High School
  • Shannon Dickinson, Lee-Davis High School
  • Jessica Dupont, Cold Harbor Elementary School
  • Justin Godard, Hanover High School
  • Kate Miller, Mechanicsville Elementary School
  • Meg Moberg, Oak Knoll Middle School
  • Heather Muldoon, South Anna Elementary School
  • Susan Newcomb, Atlee High School
  • Bernadette Stephens, Patrick Henry High School
  • Kyle Tower, Lee-Davis High School

 The following teachers achieved renewal of certifications:

  • Tracy Aitken, Oak Knoll Middle School
  • Cory Allen, Cool Spring Elementary School
  • Cheryl Golden, Stonewall Jackson Middle School
  • Angela Hobson, Henry Clay Elementary School
  • Amy Jones, Liberty Middle School

The educators were recognized during a recent pinning ceremony at VCU's Sonia Vlahcevic Concert Hall along with teachers from the Counties of Chesterfield and Henrico, and the City of Richmond.

Earning national board certification is a rigorous process that increases the effectiveness of teachers. Through the systematic examination of their teaching practices, educators deepen their knowledge of subject matter and become more skilled in daily classroom instruction and student assessment. Certification lasts for five years and must be subsequently renewed by completing a similar, but shorter, process.
