As a component of the University of California's Science and Math Initiative (SMI),
CalTeach addresses the critical need for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics
(STEM) undergraduate teacher preparation. Designed to address California's science
and mathematics teacher shortage, this innovative program recruits and prepares mathematics
and science majors for future teaching careers by providing special coursework and
field experiences in K-12 schools while they complete their undergraduate degrees.
Teach for America:
Teach For America is growing the movement of leaders who work to ensure that kids
growing up in poverty get an excellent education. We recruit a diverse group of leaders
with a record of achievement who work to expand educational opportunity, starting
by teaching for two years in a low-income community.
Volunteers in math teach basic concepts, including remedial math, geometry, algebra,
statistics, probability, and calculus. Volunteers in science teach general science,
biology, chemistry, and physics.
Depending on your specific assignment, you might:
- Collaborate with local teachers to develop teaching materials and improve teaching
- Integrate health and environmental education into the curriculum, and support other
school and community activities, such as HIV/AIDS prevention and education

Fire Academy Student
"I chose the fire technology program at Allan Hancock because of what it can provide for me. It's giving me a step above the other academies and throughout the state. Graduates of this academy have gone on to be the chiefs and the captains that are going to be hiring us, so when we go in for interviews by being able to say that we graduated at this academy they know what we've experienced. Allan Hancock College has provided me with the physical and mental capabilities through the classroom training we do each day and the physical training we do each morning. This academy pushes you to your boundaries and then you begin to work on those weaknesses; your weaknesses then become your strengths so you're actually growing as a person. Allan Hancock has made a difference in my life it's really taught me who I am and where I want to be."
