An affiliate of the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE), IATE serves professional teachers of English at all levels, elementary through college, throughout the state of Illinois. We offer a variety of activities and publications, most notably our annual fall conference. IATE members also participate in regional activities throughout the year and serve on standing committees that promote the interests of IATE and its 1200 members.
Arranged by districts across the state, IATE provides a lively network for the exchange of teaching tips, current research, and professional development—as well as enduring friendships.
The mission of the Illinois Association of Teachers of English is to improve the quality of instruction in English at all educational levels; to encourage research, experimentation, and investigation in the teaching of English; to facilitate professional cooperation of the members; to hold public discussions and programs; to sponsor the publication of desirable articles and reports; and to integrate the efforts of all those who are concerned with the improvement of instruction in English.
