The Early Childhood Assembly of the National Council for Teachers of English invites nominations for the Early Literacy Educator of the Year Awards. This award recognizes one master teacher and one teacher educator in the area of early childhood focusing on language and literacy development. The Early Childhood Assembly will select two nominees who demonstrate innovative, rich language and literacy pedagogy in 1) the early childhood classroom and 2) early childhood teacher preparation. The awards will be presented during the NCTE Annual Convention. The winners will be recognized and given a plaque, a set of professional books, and a lifetime membership to the Early Childhood Education Assembly. In addition, an interview with each Early Literacy Educator of the Year will be featured in the Early Childhood Assembly Newsletter. This award is a wonderful opportunity to recognize two creative, dedicated educators each year who are making an impact on language and literacy education in early childhood.
