Teachers from around the state celebrated their National Board Certification recently at the Capitol as the Class of 2014 was recognized. Certification was earned by 201 Kentucky teachers in 2014. This ranks Kentucky 9th in the nation for total number of National Board Certified Teachers.

Gov. Steve Beshear praised the group.

“As teachers, we entrust the most valuable asset of the Commonwealth with you and that’s the children of Kentucky,” he said.
