SD 308 Proudly Announces National Board Certified Teacher and Master Teacher



Oswego, Ill. (January 10, 2022) — Oswego Community Unit School District 308 is proud to recognize the accomplishment of Alexis F. Zayed from Oswego East High School who recently earned the title of National Board Certified Teacher and Master Teacher designation on her Illinois Professional Educator License.

Being a National Board Certified Teacher is one of the most prestigious credentials a teacher can earn. Like board certified doctors and accountants, teachers who achieve national board certification have met rigorous standards through intensive study, expert evaluation, self assessment and peer review. The process can take up to three years to complete.

Zayed earned her bachelor’s degree from Eastern Michigan University and completed her Masters of Education in Instructional Design and Technology in 2020.

Additionally, SD 308 also recognizes the following individuals for having re-certified as National Board Certified Teachers: Rachel Cirone (Brokaw Early Learning Center), Tamara DiPrima (Oswego East High School), Kelli Glatt (Wolf’s Crossing Elementary), Luisana Gonzalez (Hunt Club Elementary), Megan Mann (The Wheatlands Elementary), and Julie Peterson (The Wheatlands Elementary).

“We are very proud of this accomplishment of achieving National Board Certified Teacher and Master Teacher designation that Alexis has achieved,” said Dr. John Sparlin, Superintendent of Schools, “as well as the other educators who have continued to grow in their profession and their ability to meet the increasing demands of educating our youth. Their ability to demonstrate the nation’s highest teaching standards is of great value to the students they serve as well as a beneficial resource to their fellow faculty members.”
