CTCTE amplifies the voice of educators through personal connection, collaboration, and a shared mission to improve the teaching and learning of English and language arts at all levels and to harness the power of language and literacy to actively pursue justice and equity for all students and the educators who serve them.
In May, 2017, ACES hosted an informational session to judge interest in reviving the CT Council of Teachers of English. A small but mighty group of volunteers worked, with support from the National Council of Teachers of English, to re-establish this once flourishing organization.
Since then, the CTCTE has held 5 conferences, and a number of member events. We are an all volunteer organization devoted to providing support, professional development, and community to our members as we build our muscles as social justice antiracist anti bias educators.
