Mike Ward, Educator and Coach from Michigan. Nearly 30 years of teaching students from all walks of life has led Mike to a unique philosophy called TLC3 for E. His philosophy leverages Technology, Literacy, Content, Curriculum, and Creativity for Educators seeking to give all students every opportunity to be successful. It blends a standards-based approach with authentic learning experiences to engage students and encourage lifelong learning.

The TLC3 for E philosophy is driven by a format called A Template 4 Success. Each learning unit has its own unique template. The template provides an organized course plan, complete with appropriate content and documentation infused with 21st century skills. These essential skills include, but are not limited to, creativity, problem-solving, communicating, collaboration, decision making, entrepreneurship, and research. Mike has taken great steps to make the activities real, which allows students to take ownership of their learning. In addition, the template clearly communicates most, if not all, expectations to students, parents, administrators, and the community.

His philosophy helps teachers maximize effectiveness and efficiency. It has been successfully implemented in many academic classes as well as with the football players he coaches. Since time management is a key ingredient in success and job satisfaction, the template has helped teachers use limited time to maximize effort while continually turning out a better product for students.

The journey to perfect this philosophy has been a long one. Mike’s resources are designed to pique your interest and encourage future collaboration, so you and all of your students can begin to reap the benefits.

Mike’s passion for teaching is only surpassed by his excitement for learning.
