NCTE Professional Development

$570 of $1,180 goal

Raised by 16 people in 26 days
I went to the National Conference for Teachers of English for the first time in years last November, and it completely the changed the way I teach two of my English courses. I revamped my instruction for "Hamlet" after taking part in a Folger Shakespeare Library workshop, to the massive benefit of my students, and I picked up great new ideas for teaching "The Great Gatsby" to my American Literature kids, including a really fun year-end "Gatsby Party" that my students loved.

Here's the thing: Those two days in St. Louis last fall reenergized me as an educator and helped make me a better teacher. I could drive to St. Louis, however. This November, NCTE is in Houston, TX from November 15-18, 2018. This will require a flight and a hotel, which neither I nor my school can afford.

I have itemized my expenses as such:

Registration: $270
Transportation: $510 (flight prices as of 5/25/18)
Lodging: $400 ($200/night for two nights)

Any ground transportation or meals would come out of pocket.

I would like to attend NCTE again in the fall of 2018, but I need help getting there. My kids will benefit greatly, just as they did this past school year. Will you help me get there?

Please and thank you in advance. Wish me luck!
