Teacher Leadership Center


The Teacher Leadership Center

The Teacher Leadership Center (TLC) is an invaluable resource for teachers.

Our extensive collection includes inquiry kits from the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, EnviroScapes, textbooks, science references, activity books, educator periodicals, and National Geographic Book Packs. The TLC also offers teachers the use of our Laminator and Ellison Die Cut Machine. 

Many of our resources can be reserved and checked out for free through the TLC Loan Program. To learn more about these resources, click the button below.
