NAfME Celebrates 50 Members Who Are Newly Certified
NBCT Music Educators

On December 9, 2019, the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards celebrated 3,831 new National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) who join a community of more than 125,000 Board-certified teachers across all 50 states. Each of these accomplished educators earned this prestigious achievement through a rigorous, performance-based and peer-review process, exemplifying their direct impact on student learning and achievement.

This year, there were 54 newly certified NBCTs in Music, Early Adolescence through Young Adulthood; and 58 newly certified NBCTs in Music, Early and Middle Childhood. NAfME is delighted to share that out of those 112 newly certified music educators, 50 are NAfME members. NAfME congratulates all newly certified teachers in all fields of education, and extends our warmest wishes to our newly certified members.
