SMMUSD Proudly Recognizes 17 National Board Certified Teachers at Board Meeting
On February 19, The Santa Monica-Malibu Unified School District honored 17 teachers who have received certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards for the 2014–15 academic year.
Currently, SMMUSD reports that 13 percent of the teaching staff is certified by the National Board, greatly exceeding the statewide total of 2 percent, while LAUSD posts 6 percent of its teachers as National Board Certified. SMMUSD's freshly certified group of teachers brings the District’s total number of certification recipients to 73 out of a teaching staff of 543.
Eight District teachers received certification for the first time, while nine completed renewal certification. The 17 honorees are: Nathaniel Acker, Ursula Caise, Hayde Cervantes, Guadalupe Mireles-Toumayan, Sheryl Murdock, Kate Song, Christina Staroschak, Brian Tickler, Amy Bisson, Sharon Hart, Cynthia Sue Johnson, Adrienne Karyadi, Chon Lee, Jill Matthews, Erica Suzanne Ross, Susan Scheer, and Cyndie Weinstock.
"It is absolutely amazing for a school district of our size to have so many new and renewed teachers reach certification level," Sandra Lyon, superintendent, said. "Our teachers’ commitment to continued and higher level learning advances the quality of instruction our students receive and strengthens our community as a whole."
Opportunity for Bond Program Manager Consultant: SMMUSD is seeking to hire a highly-qualified individual consultant to be the Bond Manager Program Consultant to lead the District’s bond program for and with District constituencies. The selected consultant will oversee the $385 million Measure ES Bond approved by voters in 2012. Click here for the details of this opportunity.
