Inspire the Future,
Become a Science or Mathematics Teacher

 

The University of California has committed over $2.2 million to strengthening the state's pipeline of math and science teachers through its CalTeach Program by creating an early pathway each year for 1,700 predominantly STEM majors at 9 UC campuses to explore a career in teaching at the undergraduate level. Through enhanced outreach and recruitment efforts, particularly at its HSI-designated campuses, this commitment will provide up to 250 newly credentialed math and science teachers annually for the next 5 years who are prepared to meet the educational needs of diverse learners and dedicated to teaching in high need schools.

 

Why is NOW the time to prepare for a career in teaching science and mathematics?

There is currently a critical shortfall of qualified science and mathematics teachers in California classrooms. Because of this shortage, prospective science and mathematics teachers are extremely competitive in securing positions soon after graduation.

They are able to:

  • find internship jobs immediately upon graduation at salaries comparable to entry-level credentialed teachers; these intern opportunities often lead to permanent teaching positions
  • find job openings in the school district of their desire
  • become emerging leaders in the school districts and communities
  • benefit from the financial incentives, including loan-forgiveness programs, offered through the governmentsmi facebook

UCR-SMI is part of the UC-system wide California Teach - Science and mathematics Initiative
