Cal Teach works within the Physical and Biological Sciences to support students to explore and prepare for secondary math and science teaching careers.
Cal Teach is a University of California systemwide program that was launched on all UC undergraduate campuses in 2005-2006 to increase both the quantity and quality of new K-12 science and math teachers. At UC Santa Cruz, Cal Teach provides academic and professional preparation for science, math, and engineering majors who are exploring teaching careers. The primary activity of the program is to offer K-12 school-based internships and associated coursework for undergraduate science, math, and engineering majors. After completing the baccalaureate degree, Cal Teach students may enter a teaching credential program or simultaneously pursue work as a teacher and a credential, and the program provides some support for graduates into their early teaching careers. As a unit within the Physical and Biological Sciences Division, Cal Teach cooperates and coordinates with academic departments in three divisions (Physical and Biological Sciences, School of Engineering, and Social Sciences), and with the Division of Undergraduate Education, the Graduate Division, and the Student Affairs Division.
Under the general supervision of the Cal Teach Director, the incumbent provides administrative and program support to program staff and faculty. The incumbent serves as the first contact to the program for students, the campus community, and the public. The Cal Teach program assistant holds substantial responsibility for planning and implementing effective procedures for running the office and supporting the internships and other Cal Teach activities and events. Frequent communication across units is accomplished by the program assistant who must establish and maintain positive working relationships within the campus community. The incumbent helps in recruiting new students and advises and supports prospective and current students on requirements and procedures for participating in Cal Teach and preparing for teaching careers while completing a science, math, or engineering major.
