A National Board Certified Teacher who is among 12 finalists for Oklahoma's Teacher of the Year says a new state law that would allow funding cuts for professional development and NBCT scholarships could harm teaching and learning. "I learned things about myself that were amazing, and it's so expensive. It's worth every dollar, but we're some of the lowest-paid teachers," said NBCT Meredith Wronowski, adding that a $2,500 scholarship was the only way she could afford to pursue National Board Certification. "I guess I would like other teachers to be able to have that experience," she added.
