Franki Sibberson Elected Vice President of NCTE
The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) is pleased to announce the election of Franki Sibberson to the position of Vice President.
"When I was a beginning teacher, NCTE helped to ground me in my beliefs," Sibberson says. "The generosity of our members has continued to be critical to my work with children throughout my 29 years in education. I'm honored to be joining NCTE's elected leadership team as we move into a new era for the organization that has been my professional anchor. It is an important time for literacy education, and I appreciate the opportunity to continue to grow and learn with NCTE's members as we hone our support and leadership in the current landscape."
Sibberson is a third-grade teacher with the Dublin City Schools in Ohio, though her reach has extended far beyond those school walls. A published book author and writer of numerous journal articles and blog posts, she has contributed a great deal of thought and leadership to the content of our discipline. Sibberson has served NCTE in numerous positions, including Elementary Representative-at-Large, and chair and member of the Elementary Section Steering Committee. She currently serves on the NCTE Charlotte Huck Award Committee and on the NCTE Assessment Task Force. She is active in the Ohio Council of Teachers of English Language Arts (OCTELA) and has served on their executive board. Sibberson has presented at several conferences, including ones sponsored by NCTE, OCTELA, Whole Language Umbrella, Colorado Council International Reading Association, and Michigan Reading Association.
"Franki's literacy and teaching leadership ensures she will bring both a commitment to building our future as well as appreciation of NCTE’s legacy to this role. Her track record suggests she’ll also bring current and inspiring ideas to the table at a time when NCTE is committed to forward thinking," said Executive Director Emily Kirkpatrick.

Sibberson will take office during the NCTE Annual Convention in Atlanta, Georgia, in November, will become President-Elect in 2017, and will assume the presidency of the Council during the 2018 Annual Convention in Houston.
