National Day on Writing

As an affiliate on NCTE, BCTELA is participating in the National Day on Writing coming up on October 20th.  We invite any and all teachers and students in BC to contribute an example of their writing to the BCTELA Gallery. The purpose of this event is to celebrate the variety of writing we do every day.  Submit something today!

National Award Recognizes BCTELA Member

Celia Brownrigg has been chosen by BCTELA to receive the 2009 National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Affiliate Leadership Development Award supported by a partnership between NCTE and Pearson Education. The award recognizes her as an early career teacher who has demonstrated a capacity for professional leadership.

Celia has served on the BCTELA Executive for three and a half years and continues to show an enthusiasm for supporting professional development.  She will be attending the NCTE Annual Convention in Philadelphia and will be recognized at the Affiliate Roundtable Breakfast.

Congratulations Celia!

Get Ready to Register…

If you have seen our lovely flyer for the upcoming NCTE Northwest Regional Conference, Asking the Right Questions: Engaging Today’s Learners, you may have noticed that the registration opening date is listed as May 1st (as it did here on the website until just recently).  Registration WILL be open by May 15th so get set, think about which colleagues you may convince to come along with you, and check back here after the 15th for the link.

Are YOU in an LSA? Let Us Know!

Local Specialist Associations (LSAs) are a great way to stay connected with colleagues in the long months between conferences. Do you have an LSA in your district? BCTELA would like to promote the activities of these local groups and make contact information available for other interensted teachers. Don’t have an LSA? Did you know that BCTELA has start-up grants? Ask us!
