- Advanced teachers get recognized for their skills. Only 80 teachers in Wisconsin were recognized with their National Board Certification this year.
Among them is Michelle Flohr. Flohr teaches at Crescent Elementary in Rhinelander. She says third grade has its own challenges.
"With elementary students, you never know what you are going to get day to day. So, through the process, when you're planing lesson plans, a lot of times I would have to revamp everything that I had planned in the first place with the lesson to try to get everything that I wanted out of the kids," Michelle Flohr, a Crescent Elementary Third Grade Teacher.
The process can take anywhere from one to three years to complete. But it took Flohr just one year to receive her certification.
