State of IL

The more I'm researching this - the more I'm thinking that I shouldn't do it because of the state that I live and teach in. I'm in IL that if I'm understanding things correctly doesn't give a...

Why do it?

I'm thinking of starting the process. What are the advantages and disadvantages to becoming national board certified? Why do teachers go through the process? What is the cost?

I don't use Class Dojo for behavior and I don't want to, but I've seen that they have added a lot of extra teacher resources on it. Is it possible to use Dojo without using the behavior part?
