ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's comments on the certification at the master-teacher level. The process of earning National Board Certification is designed to make teachers reflect on their practice and the craft of teaching. According to him, the teacher must plan instruction in deliberate ways; use local, state, and national standards to inform the curriculum; plan how to assess student achievement; and design instruction based on how best to achieve the designated learning standards. Teaching technology at the elementary school level provides the teacher with a rich context in which to make learning relevant, fun, and interesting.
