Yarmouth teachers get national certification

YARMOUTH — Two high school art teachers have earned a national teaching certification.

Holly Houston and Melissa Noack are the first teachers at Yarmouth High School to receive the National Board of Professional Teaching Standards certification.

The certification requires teachers to submit a portfolio and three-hour assessment from the board. During the assessment, teachers must "demonstrate knowledge from their content area, a commitment to student learning, developed pedagogical skills and dedication to their profession," according to a press release from the School Department.

They join about 100,000 other teachers who have been certified since 1987.
