New Appointments at National Board, TEAC

Some interesting staffing changes out there in the many Washington-based teacher organizations.

Over at the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, which administers the National Board Certification program, former West Virginia Gov. Bob Wise (now of the Alliance for Excellent Education, a high school reform organization) will serve as the chairman of the board of directors.

According to the release, Wise supported bonus pay for teachers who earn the advanced credential from the National Board, so this appointment makes some sense given that states are scaling back on such bonuses as a result of the financial crisis.

And at the Teacher Education Accreditation Council, a small rival to the National Council for Accreditation of Teacher Education, Mark LaCelle-Peterson has been named vice president. He was formerly the head of teacher education at Houghton College and as an academic auditor since 2005, provided input into the design of elements of the group's accreditation process.
