Seven years ago I attended my first TLC professional development learning opportunity, which forever changed my instructional practices in the classroom and who I am as an educator. Since then I have attended every professional learning opportunity they have provided. At each session my knowledge of math/science content and instruction continue to grow! The math and science professional development offered by TLC is high quality, innovative, and rigorous. Professional development through the Teaching & Learning Collaborative provides teachers with numerous resources, activities, ideas, and collaboration opportunities to support learning and new ideas. TLC fosters professional development that is relevant to current educational initiatives and research. The Teaching & Learning Collaborative, definitely knows how to “hook” teachers in making instructional shifts to best meet the needs of students! Once you go to one PD….you will go to all! ☺

After being introduced to TLC and working with them as part of a collaborative project, I am impressed with the level of expertise and excitement in providing quality professional development for educators. I have thoroughly enjoyed developing our current PD as well as our stimulating conversations on STEM and literacy education. And I can not leave out all the laughter and FUN we had doing it! I hope to continue my relationship with TLC and look forward to working together in the future. This group is STELLAR!

Over the years, TLC has consistently provided high-quality professional development in mathematics and science. Their workshops engage teachers to deepen both content and pedagogical knowledge. Teachers leave prepared to apply this knowledge in the classroom to benefit their students. TLC has had a tremendous impact on my professional career and I appreciate all I have learned - and continue to learn - from them!

I was part of a science summer program, INQUIRE, offered through the Teaching and Learning Collaborative a couple of summers ago. This group has the most up-to-date teaching practices with more hands-on science ideas than a teacher could possibly use. The teachers walked away with field trip ideas for their school yard, knowledge about Ohio mussels and formative assessments with many writing connections. Kelli Shrewsberry, as director, is a full-fledged scientist that shares the love of teaching kids and teachers. A worthy nonprofit organization!

TLC offers courses utilizing professors, current teachers and the most up-to-date research to develop lessons. Every topic covered was fun and full of lessons ready to carry into classrooms the next day for busy elementary teachers. I participated as a facilitator with 30+ years in the classroom. I spent much time learning new information and being so excited at the lesson possibilities. I would not hesitate to take one of their workshops or courses and know the activities they sell to be of top quality.

TLC continues to showcase their talents in professional development programs in mathematics and science. Their focus on developing content knowledge and research based instructional practices has helped teachers from PreK-12!

As the Director of TLC, I am amazed everyday by our participants. Their energy and dedication make us even stronger as they push us to explore and develop new programs in mathematics and science. Their enthusiasm is contagious and I'm excited each day by the conversations we hear participants having during professional development sessions. We value our partnerships with corporate foundations, districts, and the teachers who share their learning with us.

Many of our programs have been evaluated by an outside evaluator and show statistically significant gains in developing teacher content knowledge and instruction, as well as increased student achievement. For these programs, I would expand the scope of the work so that more teachers can benefit.

Review from Guidestar

The Teaching & Learning Collaborative is continuously providing relevant and life changing lessons in science and mathematics for teachers at all levels. They are always on the cutting edge of important issues in education and developing lessons necessary for teachers to be successful. A particular area they have focused on are the Core Standards being introduced across the country. Their professional development classes give teachers the knowledge and confidence to help their students be successful in meeting these standards.

like to see more opportunities for teachers to attend the sessions. I often paid for the sessions myself because my district/school didnt' have available funds to send me.

This was my first of many classes that I will take through TLC. TLC gave me an indepth professional insight into math. Through the TLC professional development programs I am using more specific instruction which helps my students build themselves better number sense as well as problem solving skills.

I first became involved with TLC and their programming back in 2000. Their workshop offerings became an important component of my on-going professional development. TLC has helped me to stay current in the area of science. My use of formative assessments to help guide instruction and meet the needs of my students is due to classes offered by TLC. Their work with teachers focuses on on-going contact throughout the school year. This on-going contact enables teachers to meet, discuss challenges and develop solutions with their peers. Through their work with teachers, TLC is helping the students in Ohio gain knowledge and understanding in the areas of science and mathematics.

I've personally experienced the results of TLC through the science content understood by my fifth grade students. As a teacher, when I become more knowledgeable about my content areas, then my students will reap the benefits.

I wish that this organization could reach even more teachers in the state of Ohio.

I first became familiar with TLC in 2003, when I discovered they offered mathematics training for teachers of grades K-3. I quickly begged to take the training for IMPACT 1 so I could offer the primary teachers in Knox County this opportunity. What resulted from that training is no less than amazing!!! Improving Mathematics Practices and Classroom Teaching has been the highlight of my entire career in education! I witnessed teachers who formerly had not enjoyed teaching math ~ AND students who didn't like math ~ decide they LOVED math! I continue to offer IMPACT training to primary teachers under TLC's direction. Kudos to you, Teaching & Learning Collaborative for a WONDERFUL program!!!
