I also have been interested in doing National Board Certification. One of the main reasons I'm interested is because my husband is in the military and I've heard it makes it a lot easier to transfer certification in most states. I'm already certified in three different states and it's a long and expensive process sometimes. I did find out that the military will pay for almost the whole thing for me, so I think I should do it. I have a few concerns/questions though. I have emailed some questions to them, but I would love to hear your experiences. How long does it usually take to finish? I'm concerned because I will only definitely have a job for 1.5 years if I start the certification in January. We will either go home or move to a new duty station at that time. I'm worried that I won't find another job. Are you able to finish the certification without your own class? How much work would you say it was? We're planning on having kids in the next few years, so I know that might make it difficult. Thanks in advance for any help!
