Teacher Profile Projects

The Teacher Profile Process is a two-step process.

Step I:

The candidate completes a Certification Application (online or PDF) and submits the application and fees to MTNA headquarters.

Step II:

The candidate completes the five Teacher Profile Projects.

  • Candidates will have one year from the time the application and fees are received to complete the Teacher Profile Projects.
  • All Projects and Videos must be uploaded online. A link will be provided to each candidate following receipt of their application and fee.
  • Applicants will receive written notification from MTNA when the certification process is successfully completed. A certificate and the guidelines for the renewal of MTNA Professional Certification will accompany the written notification.
  • If some part of the Teacher Profile is evaluated as insufficient, certification will be deferred until that Project is evaluated as sufficient.

Application Time Limit Policy

The MTNA Professional Certification process must be completed within one-year from the date the application and fees are received at MTNA headquarters. If the process is not completed within one year, the applicant may request, in writing, a single one-year time extension, after which an application extension fee will be assessed. (See Fee Schedule.)

Resubmission Policy

Applicants will be permitted to resubmit their projects for re-evaluation within a period of 60 days. After the second resubmission, it is recommended that the applicant seek mentorship and guidance from an MTNA member who is currently recognized as an NCTM before re-submitting their projects. Applicants will only be permitted to resubmit their projects a total of three times. Should their projects be deemed incomplete or otherwise not pass after three resubmissions, the applicant will need to wait for a period of six months before reapplying for MTNA Professional Certification.
