The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) recently announced that the international affiliate founded by two TASIS England Upper School teachers will be presented with an award at their annual conference in November.
English teacher Stacey Wilkins and IB Coordinator Stephanie Feo Hughes formed the International Council of Teachers of English (ICTE) in 2017. At this year's NCTE Conference on English Leadership, they will receive the Kent D. Williamson Affiliate Membership Award, which recognizes affiliates that have substantially increased their memberships or that have recruited new members for NCTE.
The ICTE caters specifically to teachers outside the United States. Drawing on a wealth of NCTE materials and resources, the organization provides support and professional development to enhance teaching and student learning. By bringing together NCTE teachers from around the world, the international affiliate not only assists with classroom practice but also serves as a useful networking tool.
A special thanks to Stacey and Stephanie for playing their part in helping support education professionals around the world and bringing more teachers into the NCTE and wider community.
