8 Hamilton County teachers earn National Board certificates

Eight Hamilton County teachers have been certified by the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards, the highest teaching credential in the United States. Teachers receiving certification hailed from a variety of disciplines and grade levels, according to a news release from Hamilton County Schools.

The newest to receive the designation are: Lori Bowman, Ganns Middle Valley Elementary; Jayne Dyar, Westview Elementary; Sharon Eaves, East Lake Academy; John Echols, Chattanooga High Center for Creative Arts; Carla Guerra, Battle Academy; Angela Kortyka, Central High; Lisa Leopold, Normal Park Museum Magnet Upper School; and Susan Proctor, East Ridge Elementary.

The Hamilton County Department of Education and the Hamilton County Education Association have partnered in recent years to promote the voluntary national certification. Teachers receive an extra $4,000 per year over the course of the ten-year National Board certification.

About 40 Hamilton County teachers have received the designation over the last six years.
