Teacher Centers

The IU13 Teacher Centers provide teachers with the materials, tools, and workspace necessary to create instructional materials for their classroom and students.

Teachers have the opportunity to create bulletin boards, games, displays, and instructional aids. With a vast range of materials and support by certified teachers on staff, these “Make and Take” centers are a valuable resource to teachers.

The Teacher Centers are open to public and nonpublic school teachers whose schools have secured a school membership.
