Super Saturday – The World Class Teaching Program at the University of Mississippi invites ALL current candidates (new, continuing, and advanced) to attend a beneficial workshop that will prepare candidates to successfully complete the final stages of their certification journey prior to submission. Talking points include: Been There, Done That (an advanced candidate’s journey), WCTP 601 (touring and using the Blackboard resource to complete your components), and Acing the Assessment Center  (including how to prepare for the assessment center exercises, constructed response and selected response).

*Please, remember candidates are now mentored for the assessment center in their cohort groups.

This is for ALL candidates. Yes, it will benefit ALL candidates. 

Pinning Ceremony – This ceremony is for all candidates that successfully certified as a National Board teacher in the fall of 2017 and were members of the World Class Teaching Program at the University of Mississippi. This includes both advanced and renewal (Jackie Parker’s candidates). No distinction will be made between those that certify because ALL are NBCTs! Family and friends are invited. Come early and enjoy refreshments!

  • There is no pre-registration required. All candidates will register that morning. Make sure you bring your candidate ID with you.
  • A light breakfast (pastries, muffins, breakfast breads, water and coffee) will be provided  starting at 8:30 a.m.
  • Cake will be provided for the Pinning Ceremony starting at 11:30 a.m.
  • The pinning ceremony is ONLY for candidates that renewed in the fall of 2017. If you renewed earlier and would like a pin, you may purchase one directly from the National Board.
  • Pins cannot be mailed, but any candidate that certified this year can pick up a pin at the WCTP office in Oxford. Please, email Tammy Kirkland for more details.
