Hartfield Academy is proud to congratulate Mrs. Emily Flint for her accomplishment as a National Board Certified Teacher! Mrs. Flint is a math instructor at Hartfield, and serves as a shining example to our students and teachers of excellence and dedication at work in the classroom.
The certification process is rigorous and often sets the benchmark for accomplished teaching. Mrs. Flint is a true picture of NBCT standards: commitment to student learning, full knowledge of the subject taught, responsibility for managing and monitoring student learning, thinking systematically about their practice and learning from experience, and being an active member of learning communities. Mrs. Flint’s students and fellow faculty members have witnessed her embodiment of these standards, and Hartfield Academy is glad to see her life’s work being recognized in this way.
The National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) inducted 3,831 new National Board Certified Teachers (NBCTs) in 2019, who are helping students reach their highest potential in 2,914 schools across 46 states. Together with 4,786 Board-certified teachers who successfully renewed their certification, Mrs. Flint and her fellow NBCT’s have joined a growing community of more than 125,000 Board-certified teachers across all 50 states.
Jim DeLaughter, High School Principal at Hartfield, shared about Mrs. Flint: “Emily Flint is a fine teacher that integrates technology into her lessons in both Geometry & Algebra II effectively. Emily sought after and successfully completed the arduous process to be National Board Certified and we are so proud of her and proud she is at Hartfield! This is a huge honor only a small percentage of teachers qualify for and receive!”
Congratulations to Emily Flint for such an achievement!
