     Want to be certified as an official Whole Brain Teaching Certified Instructor? Then the Whole Brain Teaching Certification program is for you!

     Unfortunately, I haven't really been on the ball with this program quite yet, although I've been enviously watching everyone else post about it regularly this summer. For some reason my computer or internet connection would not format either the live web casts by Mr. Biffle or the WBT Certification PDF so I was left with minimal information. 

    But that is all in the past now because the wonderful Director of WBT Certification, Nancy Stoltenberg, has set me up with all the info I need. So if you are like me and still just figuring it all out, here is what you need to know:  

     The Whole Brain Teaching Certification program is FREE, available online, allows you to work at your own pace, and has no set time lines. In other words, it can be the PERFECT summer project that we can work on while we prep for our new classrooms and take summer vacations!

     This is how WBT Certification is described by Chris Biffle and Nancy Stoltenberg:

"Whole Brain Teaching certification is available at a variety of competency levels from Novice to International Presenter... A certified WBT educator has demonstrated the ability to effectively use core classroom management strategies and instructional materials available at Letters of recommendation and awards that accompany WBT Certification can be used as significant supplements to an educator's professional resume."
