TMC Inspiration Station

The Inspiration Station is a hands-on creative space in the front of the Teaching Materials Center dedicated to education students working on lesson plans and other classroom projects. Many craft materials are available such as: markers and crayons, stencils, stamps, construction paper… and so much more!

A highlight of the station is the Ellison machine, which is used to create cut-out shapes that are ideal for bulletin boards and posters. Among the available Ellison die cuts are the alphabet, numbers, holidays, world countries and shapes.



Students are invited to leave feedback and suggestions for future additions to the space. As one of these comments stated: “Love it! So happy you got this, I can make my work/projects even better now!” The Inspiration Station is a vibrant part of the library that’s always growing- just like the TMC itself.
