In NC, the fee is paid by the state...and once certified, we receive a 12% increase per year for 10 years...and no certificate renewal for 10 years. Many states are beginning to help teachers more and more accomplish this.
BUT...in my opinion, it is a great accomplishment, because of all the work and reflections we do on the way we teach...and I am proud that I did it. I already have my masters...did that prior to NBC.

> Both take time and money....
> Both require reflection....and hopefully, make you a better teacher.
