Should I Go for National Board Teacher Certification?

National Board for Professional Teaching Standards
I'm debating whether or not I will to become National Board Certified Teacher. It's a program would show that I meet high standards in my profession. It also means an extra $5000 a year from the state of Oklahoma.

I'd like to get involved in a course of study and reflection, but the program is very time-consuming, so I would have to drop or suspend some of my other responsiblities including my political ones.

So I don't know. I'm giving myself this next week to make a decision.
