WTLC is a community of educators of all subject areas and grade levels that provides inspiration, support and delight through its exchange of ideas and resources.

WTLC is the hub through which Wisconsin educators connect with others who are committed to including local cultural studies in their teaching and outreach. WTLC enables PK-16 educators to recognize local culture and then help their students understand what being a social creature is all about, to understand their own cultural depth, and develop a respect for the deep and broad cultures of others as lived locally.
