A Notebook for doing Washington Professional Certification (ProCert) in OneNote

In order to keep teaching in the State of Washington—after 3 years of getting to a residency certificate, and before that residency certificate expires (3 more years)—teachers need to upgrade their licenses to Professional Certificates.

The Public Employees Standards Board (PESB) has worked with the State of WA and ETS (Educational Testing Service) to create the Washington ProCert (Professional Certification).The web site for the ProCert is called WaProTeach.

As I embark on this next endeavor, I have captured that web site to a OneNote file.  Most importantly, the worksheets (question prompts, i.e. Entry 1, Entry 2, Entry 3) that must be filled out to complete an application for a ProCert are each in that OneNote Notebook.  I expect that I will plan and draft my responses in OneNote  using these templates before I copy and paste them into the form on the website.  The OneNote also contains the rubrics and other supporting information that should help a candidate write their best ProCert application.

Since the OneNote is currently blank, i.e. before I start filling it out, I thought I would share it with folks that might find it useful.  (I exported it to a OneNote file that you can download and use yourself!) 

Here’s a direct link to the OneNote file (56MB!).

 

 

 

 

 

 

1.  Not to be confused with a National Board Professional Certification which implements National Board Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS) on a web site called BoardCertifiedTeachers.  After completing that you are a National Board Certified Teacher (NBCT).
