Early Career


The Community for Early Career English

Educators was created to empower and

support new teachers through their first

year transitions, trials, and triumphs.

Designed with the new teacher in mind, our weekly meetings will serve as a space to discuss and apply scholarship in English education, navigate experiences in and out of the classroom, and cultivate sustainable teaching practices.

Meetings will cover topics

important to our field in a small and intimate setting. In this collaborative PLC, we aim to foster authentic relationships among colleagues as well as support personal and professional growth.

Space is limited. Exact meeting time will be determined by participants. 

The Early Career Special Interest Group is directed by Michelle Glerum. If you have any questions, please email her at
