A Legacy of Pride: Reflections from NCTE Vice President Jocelyn Chadwick
Literacy & NCTE Blog, February 6, 2016
"Since its founding in 1911, NCTE has been an organization devoted to representing, encouraging, and celebrating the fundamental role of English teachers in classrooms across America. The accomplishments of the many teachers who have joined and supported NCTE for more than 100 years have bestowed on us what can truly be heralded as a Legacy of Pride. We the entirety of the NCTE membership today—educators all—caucuses, assemblies, conferences—all of us are the legatees of this rich legacy. And, indeed this legacy is a rich and diverse one."
The African American Read-In happens all month long!

Teaching Is Not a Sacrifice
