Betty Castor

Betty Castor, the president and chief executive officer of the National Board for Professional Teaching Standards, recently announced that she plans to leave the organization in October.

Ms. Castor, 61, who has served as the board’s top executive for nearly three years, said she would be moving to Tampa, Fla., to be closer to her family. A former Florida state education commissioner, Ms. Castor plans to start an educational consulting practice.

The NBPTS is an independent, nonprofit organization based in Arlington, Va., that offers a national credential to teachers who undergo a certification process to demonstrate they have met the board’s standards.

Under Ms. Castor’s leadership, the organization placed greater emphasis on research to document the impact national board certification has on students, teachers, and schools.

Penelope M. Earley

Penelope M. Earley, the vice president of governmental relations and issue analysis for the American Association of Colleges for Teacher Education, will leave the Washington-based organization after more than 25 years of service.

Next month, Ms. Earley, 56, will start a job as a professor of education at George Mason University in Fairfax, Va. She will help establish a new education policy center there.

AACTE represents 735 teacher-training institutions in the United States.

David C. Haselkorn was recently appointed the dean of national education programs and policy and associate director of the center for distance and online learning at Lesley University in Cambridge, Mass.

Mr. Haselkorn, 49, previously served as the president of Recruiting New Teachers Inc. The national, nonprofit organization, based in Belmont, Mass., works with federal and state education officials as well as urban school districts to devise programs to attract and retain good teachers.
