I'm a new member to NCTE. I'm a grad student in English Composition, and hope to teach at the college level. I'm also renewing my secondary teaching certificate in English, and may perhaps land a high school position. I know NCTE is one of the best sources to learn about what's going on in the field. I look for new research, scholarship, and teaching strategies. I'm sure I'll learn valuable information.

to understand about NCTE

Sorry about the spelling problems in my earlier post of October 23. Here is a revised version, my privilege as a writer (hopefully), "As a weekly columnist interested in education at all levels, I consider writing critical to STEM as evidenced by the newest acronym, STREAM which includes writing and reading as important to Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math programs." BTW, is there an editing function for comments before final posting?
