BENEFITING: TEACHING & LEARNING COLLABORATIVE
ORGANIZER: TEACHING & LEARNING COLLABORATIVE
Many of you are aware, some are not (now you know =]) that Ryan and I have been Training for this Disney Princess Half Marathon coming up in February 2016. We figured hey, what better way to kick off the New Year by checking something off the Bucket list, and pushing each other to start living a healthier lifestyle: Let’s run a Half Marathon. YIKES! We are both very excited and let me tell you I am scared/nervous.. We both have had knee surgeries and hate running.. BUT it’s for a great cause. This is a HUGE goal of mine and I am reaching out for a little bit of help from you all. Anything and Everything helps.
We are running in conjunction with the Teaching & Learning Collaborative (TLC) Charity Group. We both have to raise the funds before the run and we are asking for your help. All of the funds raised for TLC will support professional development programs for grades PreK-12 mathematics, technology and science educators.
I chose this Charity group because I am most interested in the following two Topics/Areas/Programs that TLC has helped drive:
1. They Partner with TECH CORPS on E4Tech- This is a professional development initiative for Grades 3-4. It is designed to Engage, Excite and Empower Educators in the effective integration of computer science into the classroom. Lessons are designed to emphasize mathematics and science content through a computer science focused curriculum in three innovative modules: Robotics, Programming, and Circuits & Computing.
2. The mission of this organization is to help increase teacher effectiveness AND Student achievement while providing an opportunity to develop and sustain new collaborative partnerships.
These are just two of my favorite points about this wonderful organization. For more information on The Teaching & Learning Collaborative's professional development and resources check out the webpage: teachinglearningcollaborative.org
We hope you will help support STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education and give a little TLC (ha ha) to our team. Every donation will all "add up" to support an amazing cause! Side note All donations are tax deductible as well. 100% of the proceeds directly support TLC programs.
