I'm running the Disney Princess Enchanted 10k on behalf of the Teaching & Learning Collaborative. T&LC works to give students access to quality math and science education and is on runDisney's official list of charities for the Princess Half Marathon weekend.
Partnering up with T&LC makes me part of the "Pi-Rate" Princess Crew, hence why I'm raising $314! (There are a lot of pirate puns found here, and it made me happy: http://www.teachinglearningcollaborative.org/princess-half-marathon.html)
If you're interested in more of what they do, here is an excerpt from T&LC's website:
The mission and vision of the Teaching & Learning Collaborative represents a promise that we make as an organization to develop professional development programs that are innovative, based on critical needs in mathematics and science education, help increase teacher effectiveness and student achievement, and provide an opportunity to develop and sustain new collaborative partnerships.
TLC programs provide teachers with deeper content knowledge and effective, research-based instructional strategies to use in the classroom, thus providing students access to the quality education needed to advance their understanding of mathematical and scientific literacy for the future. Through its coalition of school districts, organizations, businesses, and government agencies, 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.
