Feedback from National Board workshop participants:

“I just wanted to take a minute to RAVE (in a good way) about Glennda and the National Board Workshops PENC provides. Once again, she has uplifted me in this process and provided a wealth of information to assist me to be successful. She is a keeper! Thank you so much for providing this opportunity and having such a wonderful resource such as Mrs. McKeithan.”

“I just wanted to thank you for the NBCT workshops offered by PENC. I was at the December workshop, and also attended the workshop in Raleigh last spring. Both workshops I attended were extremely helpful, and I’m hoping to attend again in spring 2016 if another is offered. I am a veteran teacher, but this is only my 2nd year in North Carolina. The workshop in Spring 2015 was what really alerted me to PENC’s work and prompted me to become a PENC member this school year. I know my colleague who attended Saturday also found the experience very helpful and challenging. I hope PENC will continue to offer this opportunity.”

“Thank you so much for providing the National Board Workshops on Saturday, March  14th. Before Saturday, I was more than a little anxious about the renewal process. The presenter did an excellent job getting right to the things we needed in order to achieve renewal of our certifications. Many practical tools were provided. Thank you to PENC and those who worked to set up this workshop!”
