Two more teachers earn NBCT

Graves Schools continue as NBCT leader

The Graves County Board of Education honored two newly-named National Board Certified Teachers at its Dec. 15 meeting. Graves County High School business teacher Mechelle Gattis and social studies teacher Khristain Elliott bring to 39 the number of teachers in the district who have earned certification from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards. National Board Certification is the highest honor teachers can attain. They can earn the designation through a rigorous program customized to each teacher’s individual situation to maximize his or her potential.
