Congratulations to Walla Walla Public Schools teachers Valerie Gentzler (Blue Ridge), Joshua Reed (Edison) and Kristen Wegner (Walla Walla High School) for earning their National Board certification. Last night Assistant Superintendent Chris Gardea presented these outstanding educators with official pins recognizing this accomplishment.
To become a Board-certified teacher, eligible candidates must demonstrate advanced knowledge, skills, and practice in their individual certificate area by completing four components: three portfolio entries and a computer-based assessment.
