What if I told you that you could be CONFIDENT you are submitting a great portfolio that will earn a "RENEWED" status with NBPTS

I am Tracey Bryant Stuckey and I know where you are:

  • Stressed because you are in the “Arrive and Survive” mentality from the pressures of mandates from your school district.
  • Trying to figure out “what I have been doing for the past 8-10 years that matters to NBPTS.”
  • Overwhelmed by trying to balance work, personal, and family life, on top of trying to renew in the midst of a pandemic environment.

The Renew Like a Pro program is...

Frequently Asked Questions

You complete your PPG while you are working through the course.  The course helps you to stay focused and complete the renewal process on a prescribed timeline that holds you accountable and breaks it up into manageable parts. As you move through Renew Like a Pro, the process is explained and unpacked to support you in being more efficient and effective. You can get through the course and writing your PPG in just 40 hours if you follow the course plan and stay focused. 

The Renew Like A Pro course begins with a needs assessment and supports you in outlining your PD for the past eight years.  Many teachers have found this to be their favorite part of the course as it helps them realize how much they have accomplished and what is truly important to the process. In addition, you can check out my rubric unpacked video if you already have your PGEs outlined and ready to write.

PGE stands for professional growth experience.  It would have evolved to become the focus of professional growth since initial certification. A PGE may include current content and/or pedagogical knowledge.  In addition, it may or may not showcase appropriate use of technology.  It must be ongoing, varied, and multifaceted. Finally, a PGE would show your commitment and contributions to the professional activities that evidence impact on student learning.

The Profile of Professional Growth (PPG) consists of three interrelated components and a written reflection. The components draw upon a single group of Professional Growth Experiences (PGEs) that you select. (

If you want a guide on your side… ready to answer a single question or multiple questions at anytime via email, text, phone call, or Zoom, then you want to be a Very Important Teacher in the Renew Like a Pro course.  The course by itself is AMAZING, however if the additional security of having an expert reader and an experienced past assessor be at your beck and call to read and advise throughout the process is appealing to you… get in on the VIT early before seats run out.

Renewal candidate scores are typically received by October 31st each year.

For initial certification, an NBCT demonstrated multiple performance-based teaching practices which met the National Board Standards of accomplished teaching and Five Core Propositions. Maintaining certification is not the same as re-certification or going through the certification process again. The MOC process will focus on how you, as an NBCT, have continued to grow in your professional practice and positively impacted student growth. While the evaluation of your MOC evidence will be based on the Standards and Five Core Propositions as with certification, MOC has fewer parts and will take less preparation time than initial certification.(

A milestone is an important part of the PGE. It consists of several "inch stones" that are put together to form the milestone. Make sure you check out my blog post on Milestones. (

Renewal is very different from the initial process.  Let that feeling go and sign up for the Renew Like a Pro course to have a support that will not fail you.  If you like the idea of working inside a group cohort, sign up for the course and group cohort to bounce ideas off each other.  You will not regret this purchase.

Renewal, unlike initial certification, isn’t specific to a certificate area.  Every certificate area uses the exact same portfolio (PPG) path to complete renewal.  So, you don’t need to fret over finding someone in your area as much as you need to find a great support group through Facebook or a group coaching cohort to meet your needs throughout the process.

"I am a great teacher, but I struggled to ‘unpack’ what NBPTS wanted me to do. After attending Tracey’s live course during my first renewal experience, I confidently created my story through four PGEs and found evidence gathering plus video lesson planning to be a breeze. In fact, I completed the PPG process in less than 40 hours and very little stress with Tracey’s guidance and planning system."

Cheryl Brown

"Tracey held me accountable and her course pacing supported me in completing each component in a timely manner. Renew Like a Pro helped me develop my overall story for component 1 and kept me focused on what a great teacher I am and how to write that effectively. I originally thought I would never be able to do this since I moved from teaching elementary school (initial certification) to middle school renewal. A win for me professionally and a win for my students!"

Janet Stuckey
Middle School Math

"Tracey is the National Board Guru! When I began working towards National Board certification several years ago, the School Counseling certificate was pretty new. I was hesitant to work with Tracy at first because I thought, “How can a teacher help me when my standards are so different?” Well, I was amazed! Tracy has a gift, and no matter what your area of expertise, she can and will guide you through it. She will cause you to think even deeper about what, why, and how you work with children and implement your standards. She made the renewal process a breeze as well. From selecting PGEs to getting the perfect video, Tracey’s guidance and planning system will ease your stress and save you time!"

Shand Altman
School Counseling

"When renewing my NBPTS this past spring, I turned to Tracey Stuckey and am so thankful that I did. Tracey is the ultimate professional and knows exactly how to help candidates achieve success. Our sessions were productive and informative as Tracey knows precisely what the National Board renewal process is looking for in candidates. Here suggestions and guidance were spot on and I passed the first time, thanks to her assistance. She breaks down the standards and helps candidates write in the NBPTS vernacular so that reviewers can easily find what they need as they assess one's work. The time spent with Tracey's program is well worth the investment. "
