Why Join the National Council of Teachers of English

"I joined NCTE because I wanted to be connected. . . .

I think one of the biggest issues facing teachers today is this sense of isolation and NCTE erases that, because all of a sudden you’re part of a community. I couldn’t have survived all this time without NCTE."

Jeff Golub, Member, 30 years
