Kennewick teachers earn National Board Certification

Seven teachers did more than their share of homework to earn their National Board Certification this year.

Their names have now been added to a growing list of 108 teachers in the district who have embarked on the rigorous, performance-based process that has become a teacher's mark of accomplishment.

Pursuing National Board Certification is voluntary and done on the teacher's own time and at their own expense. Research shows that the students of Board-certified teachers learn more than students in other classrooms, which is why Washington offers incentives for teachers to pursue Board certification.

Congratulations to KSD's new National Board Certified Teachers:

  • Joe Ansingh, Southridge High School
  • Kathleen Armitage, Vista Elementary School
  • Kaylee Garner, Eastgate Elementary School
  • Kathryn Koegler, Vista Elementary School
  • Michele Maxson, Vista Elementary School
  • Tricia McMullen, Eastgate Elementary School
  • Sara Riesenweber, Southgate Elementary School
