TEACHING & LEARNING COLLABORATIVE
September 12, 2011
I have worked with TLC for years in a number of programs. They have taken a lead in the state - and I would say set an example nationally - in 2 particular areas.Their more than 15 year old Math Teacher Leader program was continued from a prior organizational structure. They were a leader in the nation with the concept of math teacher leader, and now, as the elementary mathematics specialist initiative has developed nationally, the TLC provides an example of a quality program to train and support teacher leaders. In the second area of their leadership, the TLC's IMPACT program attends to the needs of primary grades teachers teaching mathematics. This often overlooked group is well supported through IMPACT, with a sustained and comprehensive program. The quality of the TLC programs is always a hallmark of their contributions!

Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
I just wish they could have more funding and more human resource support for the work they do.
Professional with expertise in this field & I helped plan and deliver programming for TLC.
