British Columbia Teachers of English Language Arts (BCTELA) is a Provincial Specialist Association. We are made up of English Language Arts teachers from all over the province of British Columbia and the Yukon Territory. As an affiliate of both NCTE and BCTF, our mandate is to provide support for our members in their practice and professional development.
The BCTELA website promotes our annual conference and its associated presenters or workshops, its activities, journals and contests. We can not provide anyone access to our membership list for privacy reasons, nor do we provide space for individuals or corporations to engage in self promotion, especially for profit.
BCTELA is coordinated by an executive committee but powered by each and every member educator through the province.
