The Executive Board of the South Carolina Council of Teachers of English invites you to be a part of our professional organization. SCCTE is an affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English, and it is devoted to improving the teaching and learning of language arts at all levels of education, kindergarten through college. 


Each year we host an annual professional conference focused on the teaching of English. We encourage members and non-members alike to consider presenting at the conference, sharing the practices from their own classrooms that lead to change - change in student outcomes, change in how students see the world, or practices that lead students changing our world. SCCTE also recognizes the accomplishments of talented teachers each year through our awards. Please visit our awards page and consider nominating an outstanding teacher for their work in literacy.

We hope SCCTE will become a professional home for all teachers of English in South Carolina. SCCTE is an organization devoted to helping teachers grow professionally, from building professional networks with teachers from around the state to sharing the latest information on literacy, our organization is focused on sustaining the work of our exemplary teachers across South Carolina. We understand what teachers need in order to succeed in the 21st Century and we promote diverse learning opportunities that will serve the various learning communities across the state.


We are dedicated to providing support to ELA teachers across the state of South Carolina, including publication opportunities, retiree mentorship, and nationally-recognized awards, in addition to the annual conference.
