Long-time Center Street School kindergarten teacher Daphne Moote has been awarded a national board certification, her profession's top honor, as an Early Childhood Generalist by the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards (NBPTS).Moote is one of just 10 South Bay instructors and the only one in El Segundo to receive the honor for the year 2002.

National Board Certification is a voluntary process established by the NBPTS for kindergarten through high school educators as a symbol of their teaching excellence.Designed to strengthen the teaching profession and elevate student academic performance, certification is achieved through a rigorous assessment that takes nearly a year to complete.Through this process, teachers document their knowledge of the subject matter they teach, provide evidence of their ability to educate students effectively, and demonstrate their skills at managing and measuring student learning.
Moote said she was motivated to meet the challenge of National Board Certification by her personal goal to grow as a teacher."I wanted to see if I could meet the rigorous standards and I am proud to say that I did it," she said.She explained that she had to become an expert on teaching all subject areas to children four to eight years old."I am confident that I am a better teacher for having gone through the process, which I found to be amazing," she added.
As part of the application process, Moote began last August to assemble four portfolios she was required to submit to the NBPTS.These included assessments of student work samples, written examples of her professional development and leadership, and videotaped lessons.She traveled to an assessment center to take 30-minute writing prompts, during which she chronicled her knowledge of early childhood education.
During each half-hour written exam she read detailed prompts, analyzed data, and responded to questions about different subjects.After 30 minutes, the screen went blank and another prompt appeared."It was an intense assessment and there was no time to edit what I'd written," Moote said.She credits her ability to master the written prompts to the estimated 600-800 hours of personal time she spent on research while she prepared for certification.
"Daphne is a teacher who exemplifies professionalism at every level and she is a pleasure to work with," said Dr. Wendy Doty, Superintendent of Schools in ESUSD.

Moote was presented a Certificate of Merit for Outstanding Achievement by the ESUSD at the December 10 board meeting in front of a crowd of supporters that included colleagues, former and current students, and their parents.She has taught kindergarten at Center Street School for 16 years and is the president of the El Segundo Teachers' Association.With her husband, Moote has operated a summer learning academy called DAMLA since 1991.
Moote is one of 651 teachers in California to achieve the profession's top honor in 2002, bringing to 1,960 the total number of educators statewide to hold national certification.
