Working towards National Board Certification is a journey! This professional adventure can take one year or longer. The experiences and reflections that you encounter along the way is what defines who you are!

I would be honored to be part of your professional story and support your learning as you advance your professional skills to that of an accomplished National Board Certified Teacher or another professional goal you have set for yourself.

*NOTE: I cannot guarantee you will earn a National Board Certificate, as a result of our work together.

I can guarantee your work with me will push you further along to reach your professional goals, whether that is National Board Certification or other education goals you have set for yourself.

Welcome Friends!!

I'm Dr. Annette, your personal guide to reach your professional goals!

I remember my NBCT journey! The time commitment, the struggles, the videos, the reflecting, and yes . . the long wait for scores!

As I began my journey, I knew that it would take a lot of work, dedication, and time, and I had to carefully manage my responsibilities (wife, mom, church, and teacher). At times, it was not easy. Multitasking and organizing became my focus. I even spent time "burning the midnight oil". Although I was very busy during my adventure, THIS journey was THE ABSOLUTE BEST professional development I have EVER experienced.

I am excited to offer my expertise in this learning process from the candidate and coaching perspectives. Although my certification area is Middle Childhood/Generalist, I have mentored teachers in a wide range of certificate areas and feel confident I can provide valuable coaching to support your specific needs. I have had the privilege to coach multiple dozens of teachers in my district, state, and nationwide, as they began their personal journey.

Are you ready to begin your journey?

Are you looking for an experienced coach to guide you along this adventure?

You have come to the right place!

Whether you need support for one component or several, I will work as your personal coach to push you to your limits (and then some), as you work towards demonstrating the indicators of an accomplished teacher.

Are you ready to get started?

I am excited to begin this journey with YOU!
