There are 12,670 National Board Certified Teachers in Florida -- 1,633 in Broward County alone, the highest concentration of NBCTs in the state. The state typically pays NBCTs a bonus equal to 10% of the average teacher's salary statewide, plus an additional bonus if they mentor other teachers. Officials have said that earning certification improves teacher quality and, subsequently, student performance.
