Dear English Teachers of West Virginia,
We are a group of passionate teachers who are committed to providing our students with the highest quality instruction and most valuable learning experience we can offer.
We believe English teachers throughout our state have a story to tell, expertise to share, and the ability to change and shape the lives of our students. We believe when teachers are connected, have a voice, and are plugged in, students benefit.
WVCTE provides teachers a professional experience that inspires greatness, so they can reach their students in ways that result in learning that matters and endures.
Please join us in uniting West Virginia educators. Let’s inspire greatness together.
