November 2019 #NCTEchat: #NCTE19 Annual Convention

We can’t believe it, but the 2019 Annual Convention is almost here! Join us this Sunday, November 17, at 8:00 p.m. ET, on Twitter for an #NCTEchat all about #NCTE19!


This year’s Convention kicks off Thursday, November 21, in Baltimore, Maryland. More than 7,000 educators from across the country will come together to network, meet their favorite authors, and learn new skills and ideas to take back to the classroom. We can’t wait to see all of our members at #NCTE19, and hope this #NCTEchat will get everyone excited for next weekend! If you haven’t registered for Convention yet but are planning to join us, you can do that here.
