Events - National Council of Teachers of English


November 16-19 in Columbus, Ohio

I can’t wait to cross paths with you all in person in November 2023. I want to learn from the narratives you tell of the pathways you and your students have traveled. Our time together will be a conexión that brings us together to communicate, collaborate, and create and then release expanded versions of ourselves back out into our vast networks of being and meaning, teaching and learning, leading and loving.” Shelley Rodrigo – 2023 Program Chair | NCTE President-Elect
