CITE, the Conference of Independent Teachers of English, supports the teaching and learning of English, Media Studies and drama at its member CIS Ontario schools. We do so through two ambitious complementary projects: an annual professional conference for teachers of English and the publication of an anthology of student writing. CITE also facilitates meetings of member schools' English curriculum leaders, and provides a social and professional network for literacy teachers.
Consistently high-quality workshops at our conferences is a key feature that CITE members comment on year after year. It's no surprise because the majority of these workshops are led by CITE teachers like you. Please express your interest to be part of this year's CITE conference by dropping Sally Mastromonaco an email in which you briefly describe your workshop and how it aims to support the conference theme of The World is Your Classroom: Creative Non-Fiction at Work. Send your email to Sally Mastromonaco (firstname.lastname@example.org).
CITE is managed by a devoted group of volunteers, the Executive:
“The Master said, “A true teacher is one who, keeping the past alive, is also able to understand the present.”
