NCTE Annual Convention Program Chair Doug Hesse
Talks about the November Convention

"I'm most excited about our colleagues. There are teachers across this country who are just doing astounding stuff with the way they're designing classrooms, lessons, and the kinds of work that their students do -- just amazing. This is a great opportunity to hear from them as well. What are they doing? How does that affect me? I learn as much from going to some of the sessions by my middle school colleagues as I do sessions from my college colleagues. That's one of the beauties, I think, of NCTE." -- Doug Hesse, 2015 Program Chair
