Mattessich Published English Journal Article

Valerie Mattessich, Supervisor of English, Art, and Media Centers, has published an article for the High School Matters column in English Journal, the national peer reviewed journal for English educators published by NCTE. The piece, titled "Looking Backward to Look Forward" explains Mattessich's process of increasing the representation of a wide variety of people in the English curriculum, specifically with an eye to representing folks from the LGBTQ+ community in keeping with the NJ state mandate. The High School Matters column is typically written by a member of the NCTE’s Secondary Steering Committee, a national committee to which educators, including Mrs. Mattessich, are elected and serve in a variety of ways, from planning the national convention to writing blog posts and columns to working with state affiliates to promoting NCTE via social media.
