CATE (California Association of Teachers of English) is a non-profit organization promoting communication, collaboration, and educational knowledge among all responsible for teaching English and the language arts. All California English teachers are encouraged to join.
CATE is seeking two committed, motivated individuals to join the California Young Reader Medal committee as CATE representatives.
Volunteers should be prepared to read a large quantity of books across many different categories, and should be prepared to travel to three meetings per calendar year. CATE will reimburse airfare or mileage for travel to CYRM meetings.
These individuals will participate in the nomination process and award giving for the CYRM medal recipients for a term of three years.
If interested, contact Annie Gervais, CATE Board member and CYRM Liaison, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Include “CATE CYRM” in the subject line.
