Idaho gains 10 National Board Certified teachers
BOISE, Idaho (AP) _ Education officials in Idaho say the state
has more than 360 National Board Certified teachers in public
The state Department of Education says 10 Idaho teachers were
among the nearly 8,900 nationwide who became National Board
Certified in 2009.
In northern Idaho, where the Moscow School District is listed
among the top five districts in the state for the most number of
National Board Certified teachers, three teachers earned this
