Open Position for NT3 Board Certified Teacher Advisor

As a partnership between the Alabama State Department of Education, the Alabama Education Association, and the Alabama National Board Certified Teachers Network, Alabama's Network to Transform Teaching (NT3) is fully funded by a US Department of Education Supporting Effective Educator Development (SEED) grant.  The goal of NT3 is to increase the number of National Board Certified Teachers in Alabama and innovate and improve teacher leadership opportunities for existing NBCTs.

Board-certified teachers bring critical frontline expertise to the Network to Transform Teaching (NT3) improvement team.
