Learn why these star teachers and
school leaders became NCEs


"I support K-12 in a large district. I needed to know as much about Newsela as possible so that I could support teacher planning, identify resources, offer suggestions to match the tool to the instruction, troubleshoot, and more."


"I became a Newsela Certified Educator to join a community that could help me learn how I could best use this platform to make reading personalized and powerful for each of my students. Being an NCE has connected me to new ideas, other educators, and impactful strategies to elevate reading in content areas for my students."


“As a teacher, you will be much more confident and comfortable in utilizing all that Newsela has to offer, therefore developing skills and confidence in your students as well!”
