Welcome! TYCA-Pacific Northwest is part of the College Section of the National Council of Teachers of English. We remain committed to our original purposes:
- to provide professional activities for teachers in two-year colleges of the Pacific Northwest region;
- to sponsor an annual conference on the teaching of English in two-year colleges in the region;
- to encourage research, study and writing by teachers in two-year colleges (see links at our resources page);
- to recognize excellence in teaching, we invite nominations for the Lisa Ede Teaching Excellence Award; two faculty, one full-time and one adjunct, may receive this award each year, which includes a cash grant of $500.
As the fastest-growing of the seven regions of the TYCA, we welcome your interest and invite your membership in the organization.
