MARANA, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

A Marana district teacher recently received her certification in Literacy: Reading-Language Arts—Early and Middle Childhood from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards.

Shannon Carmichael, a reading specialist at Coyote Trail Elementary, has been with the Marana Unified School District for more than eight years.  She was recently recognized by the MUSD Governing Board during its most recent board meeting. 

According to a release from MUSD the NBPTS certification is ‘a rigorous, peer reviewed process that ensures certified teachers have the proven skills to advance student achievement.'  This is also an advanced teaching credential that requires teachers to analyze their own teaching context and students needs, submit a video of their teaching, as well as provide samples that demonstrate growth and achievement. 

Through this structured process, teachers expand and refine their content knowledge and pedagogy. The outcome is more powerful teaching that improves student achievement and reflects college and career readiness.

Carmichael joins the ranks with 9 other Nationally Board Certified teachers in MUSD.
