NECTJ founded in 1992 is a professional organization of teachers of Japanese in K-16 in the east coast of the United States.  It is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the teaching of Japanese language at the pre-collegiate level throughout the Northeast. In 2000, the Northeast Association of Secondary Teachers of Japanese (NEASTJ) changed its name to the Northeast Council of Teachers of Japanese (NECTJ) to cover not only secondary education, but also a wider range of levels including elementary and education for children of Japanese heritage.


NECTJ received the Japanese Foreign Minister Award from the Japanese government for enhancing cultural exchanges and understanding between Japan and the United States of America! 

MISSION: The purpose of the Northeast Council of Teachers of Japanese (NECTJ) is to broaden Japanese language education in the northeastern area of the country and assist educators in their professional work as teachers of Japanese language and culture. The majority of our work focuses on the high school level, but we also work with educators at American middle & elementary schools and schools for children of Japanese heritage. We recognize that teachers need constant help and practical information, opportunities to pool their talents, and to share information about effective classroom practices. Our members are also engaged in grassroots relations with community administration and other school colleagues. Our students come from all ethnic, cultural and economic backgrounds in the US and those who learn Japanese language and culture contribute greatly to relations between America and Japan in many profound ways.
