What's Happening? 

COMING SOON: Look for PDP only workshop offering(s) in the fall!

The NCTA is beginning to organize a Bargaining Council for our member locals. Reach out to Chris Brillant (NCTA President) if you have any questions or would like to come to our next meeting.

The annual NCTA All-Presidents Dinner Meeting with MTA Leadership was held on December 6th. It is always a great way to collaborate with our member locals.

Our October 2023 Free Workshop on Strategies for Teaching Deaf and Hard of Hearing Students proved very useful for all who attended.

 Stay tuned for more workshop/PDP offerings and reach out to us if you have any suggestions!


Our Graduate Offerings include topics like:

ELA & Literacy

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math)

Special Education

Supporting Students & Social-Emotional Learning

Pedagogy & Professional Growth 

All courses earn 3 graduate credits from Framingham State University $595 and 67.5 PDPs. Visit our website ( for more information including course descriptions, withdrawal and late registration policies, contact information and more! 


NCTA is partnered with Framingham State University 
NCTA provides professional development opportunities to help educators enhance their instructional skills, to share best practices, and to better understand and support their students while fostering confidence and independence.  Our online courses cover a wide variety of topics to help professionals in education enrich and elevate their instructional strengths while meeting their re-licensure requirements a/o upgrading their salary. While taking our courses educators are able to access materials 24/7 wherever there is access to the internet.  Educators will interact with their instructor and classmates throughout the duration of the courses dates.  All assignments, papers, exams and final projects are graded and posted by the instructor.  

What are NCTA participants saying about our courses...
  • A very worthwhile course.
  • Love these course offerings, especially Deb Merriam’s classes. Thank you!
  • Great Class. Thank you for offering these classes.
  • This is a fabulous class. I wish I had taken it over the course of a semester instead of a summer intensive so that I had more time to process what I was learning.
  • The instructor was accessible. Helpful and pleasant!
  • This was my first NCTA class- wish I hadn’t waited so long! Thank you!
  • GREAT CLASS! I loved it!
  • Look forward to the fall coarse offerings!
  • This class exceeded my expectations. I learned from both the resources and the other teachers taking it and will refer back to my notes to myself throughout the year(s).
  • I enjoy the course and it helped me look into how I can make my lit circles better for my students.
  •  Great class, thank you!!
  • It was a quick pace but I got a lot out of the course. I would like to see more courses in the realm of social justice or anti-racist curriculum building.
  • The readings and websites offered were excellent. It was a fabulous course!
  • Erich did a great job setting up the course and letting it run without interference. He trusted his students to complete the work and follow the instructions. Kudos to him.
  • This course could not be needed more after this past year. I’m so grateful and plan to use what I have learned on day 1. In fact, I’m already using practices to prepare myself for a great new year. Thank you.
  • Loved the Silverman, ISeman, Jeweler reading. Considering the jargon-laden verbose and methodologically poor nature of most education reading I've seen, this book used concise clear language, and cited its evidence. MUCH APPRECIATED!
  • Great course!
  • One of the best classes I have taken in my 14-year teaching career!
  • Thank you! Great class to help armor me for the fall.
