“I encourage all teachers, but especially elementary teachers, to join and participate in the National Council for Geographic Education. Your involvement will enrich, renew and reinvigorate you and your teaching.”
“Through my work with the NCGE, I made connections with many award-winning geographic educators. All of my colleagues at NCGE contributed in some way to my growth as a geographer and geographic educator, whether it was how to design a quality research proposal, mentoring graduate students and junior faculty, or simply modeling good scholarship.”
“A buried treasure! A whole organization of people who see the world with a geographic eye, and want to share it. The conference is an annual highlight where educators from grad school down into grade school share their expertise and value each other’s experience.”
“I can honestly say that my 15 years as a member of NCGE and the annual conference with the teachers’ workshop recharges my enthusiasm for geography education each year. I meet life-long friends, dedicated teachers, long-time readers, new readers, and knowledgeable geographers.“
“NCGE and its membership continue to inspire and challenge me, both professionally and personally. I have never felt more at home working on geography education projects with colleagues and life-long friends that share the same passion I have for learning about the world and teaching others.”
“As a first year social studies teacher, in a foreign country with no formal geographic education, I found myself assigned to teach AP Human Geography and world geography. The Journal of Geography and The Geography Teacher were instrumental to my own professional development. NCGE’s webinars and weekly AP Bell-Ringers have been valuable resources.”
“After attending my first NCGE conference, I was hooked; it was a wonderful experience! University professors were mixing with elementary, junior high, and high school teachers, and the common love of geography education superseded people’s academic background.”
“I consider NCGE as my home base national professional organization. I know that I would have had far fewer opportunities to join in such enjoyable joint learning adventures without my NCGE colleagues and friends supporting me.”
