Concerning NCTE Executive Director Kent Williamson

Our dear friend and colleague Kent Williamson, Executive Director of NCTE and Director of the National Center for Literacy Education (NCLE), was recently diagnosed with acute monocytic leukemia. Kent received the news shortly after returning home from our nation's capital, where on NCTE's 2014 Advocacy Day he highlighted the release of a new NCLE report titled Remodeling Literacy Learning Together: Paths to Standards Implementation during a briefing on Capitol Hill.  Read more.

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?
