March Zona Leader, Donald Tramp

Congratulations to Donald Tramp, Buckeye Union High School Science Teacher, for being recognized as a National Board Certified Teacher!

Mr. Tramp has been teaching in public education for the past 16years and recently moved to Buckeye Union High School District where he is currently teaching Integrated Science Principles (ISP). He has a Bachelor’s of Science in Environmental Resources in Agriculture from ASU, and a Master of Arts in Education, Curriculum and Instruction from The University of Phoenix.

Mr. Tramp went through a rigorous process to achieve the National Board Certification, which is an advanced teaching credential. As part of this process, teachers must analyze their teaching context and students’ needs, submit videos of their teaching, provide student work samples that demonstrate growth and achievement, as well as complete multiple tests that asses the teacher’s knowledge and understanding of their certificate area.  This process took Mr. Tramp 2 ½ years to complete and receive his National Board Certification.  “I would love to help more teachers in the Buckeye Union High School District accomplish their National Board Certification,” said Mr. Donald Tramp.

Studies repeatedly demonstrate that National Board Certification impacts student performance and school culture.  To learn more about National Board Certification visit
