The Teaching & Learning Collaborative is a registed 501(c)(3) non profit organization located in Worthington, Ohio.  The mission of the Teaching & Learning Collaborative (TLC) is to provide high-quality, innovative professional development and support for pre-K through 12th grade educators in mathematics, science, and technology.

Background of TLC:

The Teaching & Learning Collaborative (TLC), formerly known as the Science & Mathematics Network, is a coalition of school districts, organizations, businesses, and government agencies with whom we collaborate to design and carry out our work. TLC works at a variety of levels, from the classroom to the state level, to ensure that all students have access to quality education in science and mathematics. Currently, our work is focused in three areas: professional development in science, mathematics, and technology for grades K-12 educators; special initiatives; and tailored contracted professional services.

Simply put, TLC helps K-12 teachers teach science and mathematics more effectively.  When possible, our professional development involves multiple interactions over time with the same teachers. Research indicates that ongoing professional development is most likely to result in classroom implementation of the concepts and strategies.  In our sessions, participants explore and try new techniques, and adapt them to their particular needs and classroom settings.

It is our vision to give all educators the expertise and resources needed to design and facilitate engaged learning experiences for students in mathematics, science, and technology.

Funds from the Charity Day 5k will support valuable programs for educators and their students.  During the 2015-2016 school year, TLC worked with over 800 educators representing XX districts throughout Ohio.  By joining “RunwithTLC” for this event, your support will reach educators across Ohio who are focused on the same goal we are:  engaging students in rich learning experiences!

So, don’t COUNT the miles….make the miles COUNT and join TLC for the Charity Day 5k!
