About the Michigan Council of Teachers of English

Founded in 1924, the Michigan Council of Teachers of English (MCTE) is an organization for K-16 English language arts teachers and English educators in Michigan. MCTE provides professional development for English language arts teachers and English education professors throughout the state. Our goals are to disseminate current English education scholarship and assist English language arts teachers as they make decisions about pedagogical practices, student populations, and teaching philosophies.

Dear Michigan English educators, 
Please nominate a great teacher for the 2017 MCTE High School English Teacher of the Year award! For this award, the recipient will be honored at our own fall conference and at the secondary luncheon at the NCTE conference in November.
Time is running out--nominations are due Monday! 

To nominate someone, MCTE needs "the honoree's resume and signed letters of support from at least TWO different constituencies---principal, supervisor, chairperson, peer, parent, or student---about contributions in the classroom and excellent practices exhibited by the recipient" (from NCTE's guidelines).

Note that the letters must be signed, so you may need to print, sign, and scan before submitting. Nominees must be members of MCTE and NCTE. (Join MCTE at http://groupspaces.com/MCTE/.)

Please submit nomination materials to MCTE president Mitch Nobis (mnobis@gmail.com) by Monday, April 17th.
