Initial Candidates

National Board Sanity Saturday Workshops
The Watson College of Education's National Board Support Program will schedule initial candidate support sessions to be held on Saturdays between October 2018 and April 2019. These support sessions will be held in the Education Building, on the UNCW campus from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. A National Board Certified Teacher will facilitate the sessions. Sessions include a network of trained NBCTs to assist in facilitating small group work, act as readers to review candidate entries, and are an opportunity to work with other candidates in an informal setting for professional growth!
