Renton schools add 11 board-certified teachers

Washington has the largest group of new national board certified teachers in the nation, and the Renton School District accounted for 11 of them.

National board certification requires teachers to submit a four-part portfolio and a six-exercise teaching content and philosophy assessment. A national panel of peers reviews the 10 entries to determine whether the teacher meets board standards.

McKnight Middle School social studies teacher Kristin Jonas was among the 11 certified.
