Facilitator Information

In 2006 the UNCW Watson College of Education and the DPI Department of Recruitment and Retention worked together to create and deliver a state-wide professional development opportunity for those people interested in supporting candidates in North Carolina. UNCW is proud to continue this work by providing an updated version of this professional development opportunity.

Please consider sending your new district NBCTs, new support providers, or those people interested in beginning a support program. We look forward to seeing all friends of the National Board process! If you are interested in providing support provider training as a system-wide initiative please contact us directly.


All support sessions are facilitated by Jenn Hatch Knight, PDS Assistant Director, in the office of Teacher Education and Outreach. Ms. Hatch Knight was an elementary classroom teacher, instructional coach, lead mentor, and is a current National Board Certified Teacher. At the Watson College of Education she coordinates the First Years of Teaching Program, National Board Support Program, and acts as the edTPA Student Support Facilitator.
