I did it.

I'm a National Board Certified Teacher.

I know I'm a determined person. I know I'm a hard worker. But I'm not always confident. I guess, on some level, I'm afraid of disappointment. So I kept telling myself that regardless of the results, I would still be proud that I applied. Just finishing the process is a major accomplishment.

Realistically, it actually is an accomplishment just to finish. For me, however, it's not enough. There is always a part of me that always wants to be the best. If I didn't get it, I would be crushed. Thankfully, the judges liked my portfolio because I did it! I'm in!

So today, I can say I am the best. I did it. I earned my National Certification and I am really, really proud of myself!

What else can I say!

Go me!!

Congrats on getting Nationally Board Certified! It is a lot of hard work and extra hours to complete that portfolio. And I agree with Jami above, how could the judges not love you?!?

I'm doing a little happy dance for you and your certified-ness! :)
