The Elementary Section of NCTE represents a diverse group of teachers, literacy coaches, reading and special education interventionists, teacher educators, and school administrators interested in literacy development and in literacy teaching at the elementary school level. Our primary task is to connect and support teachers as they work closely with students, administrators, and families to develop and promote lifelong literacy learning. We cordially welcome all educators interested in reading, writing and the language arts.
Candidates for the 2013 NCTE Elections have been announced!
Beginning this year, ballots will be emailed to members with a current email address on file. If you wish to double check or change your email address, please visit the website and update the information by March 20. While there, you can also update your member profile. For those members who do not have an email address on file, a paper ballot will be sent to you by regular mail. Only current NCTE members will be sent a ballot for voting so be sure your membership is up-to-date. All ballots will be sent to members in April.
