Join us and Become a Member

The New Jersey Council of Teachers of English (NJCTE) is the New Jersey affiliate organization of The National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE). The NCTE and NJCTE are different memberships.  NJCTE Memberships run from April 1 to March 31.  


We invite teachers, administrators and friends of English/language arts to join us. We encourage our members to dedicate their time to participate and make a difference in the lives of their fellow teachers—and their own!  


We have won the NCTE Kent D. Williamson Affiliate Membership Award!
