Dr. Gloria Smith and Dr. Lennie Little are presently mentoring 31 pre-service teachers at Jackson State University to help them become familiar with the Five Core Propositions of accomplished teaching and the standards that are the basis for becoming a National Board Certified Teacher as part of The Southwest Mississippi World-Class Teaching Project, at JSU. The Southwest Mississippi World-Class Teaching Project offers the following components to meet the needs of teachers seeking National Board Certification: Mentoring Program, The Pre-Candidacy Program, and Standards Study/Prep Course. To support the efforts of certifying accomplished educators, and providing programs that support excellence in teaching, the World Class Teaching Project (WCTP) has received a grant from the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards to work with pre-service and early-career teachers in Mississippi to help engage them in transforming the profession. This grant was made possible by the Gates Foundation in the Fall of 2013 and will continue through June of 2016.
