Dear English Teachers of West Virginia,

We are 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 that when teachers are connected, have a voice, and are plugged in, students benefit. 

WVCTE provides teachers a network for meaningful professional learning, so our classrooms become places where learning matters and endures.

 Please join us in uniting West Virginia educators. Let’s inspire greatness together.

WVCTE Executive Committee

Let's learn and grow together.
