While “the world is mud-lucious” and growing beautiful and green, school days and spring days come on with some level of frustration, too. It’s opening day of standardized testing season, spring sports, proms, concerts, the works. And it’s that time of year when summer and its available freedoms seem so close yet so far away. Almost every teacher I know seems to have one foot planted in the present and one in the future, handling the anxieties of today and thinking ahead to all there is still yet to accomplish.

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.
