About CalTeach

CalTeach is a program for undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) majors interested in exploring a career in education. Through our courses, students learn conceptual teaching skills and practice these methods in local K–12 classrooms. CalTeach offers the Science and Math Education minor as well as a unique opportunity for students to complete both a bachelor's degree and a California teaching credential as an undergraduate. 

Mission & Vision

CalTeach is part of a national movement to address the challenges facing K–12 education.

History

CalTeach was proposed and funded in 2005 and began hosting courses in 2006. Over the next few years the program expanded it's course offerings, and by 2010 the Science and Math Education minor had been fully implemented. That same year the experimental CalTeach Credential Program was approved. Also occurring in 2010 was the founding of Cal Teach's sister program for veteran teachers, Math for America Berkeley. These two programs together comprise the Berkeley Science and Math Initiative (BSMI).

Announcement: The ARC (Advising & Resource Center) is Open!

The CalTeach ARC, located in Evans Hall 30 on the ground floor, is a space for students and staff to check out inventory items, utilize our fridge and microwave, ask quick questions to our peer advisors, and hang out.

Due to capacity limits, the ARC is being used primarily for 15-minute ARC and inventory visit slots.  You can sign up for a slot at tinyurl.com/arcinventory. Please visit our inventory website at: calteach-inventory.myturn.com.

If you would like to sign up for a peer advising appointment, we are conducting those virtually! Please sign up at tinyurl.com/calteachpeer or email us at calteach_peers@berkeley.edu.
