CTC’s Resource Center is a place where teachers, parents, pre-services students and staff from community organizations connect to discuss instructional ideas, develop curriculum and attend workshops. CTC provides an organized and efficient workspace for developing classroom materials, computer equipment and cultural resources along with an extensive collection of teacher resource books and video tapes, including the PBS collection. A great place for pre-service teachers to work on projects with expert staff.
