Noyes Speaks To Pierre School Board On National Board Certification

A Pierre elementary school teacher was recognized for her work in becoming Nationally Board Certified. Ann Noyes teaches fifth graders at Kennedy Elementary School and earlier this year completed the multi-year program…

She submitted up to forty pages of documentation including 15 minutes of uninterrupted video from teaching sessions. The National Board Certification would allow Noyes to teach anywhere in the country, but she’s in a position to help fellow educators in South Dakota. She says it’s made her a better teacher…

A second Pierre School District teacher is looking to obtain National Board Certification. Noyes is one of only 111 such Certified teachers in South Dakota.
