CalTeach Mission Statement

The UC Merced CalTeach program is designed to address the shortage of science and mathematics teachers in California's elementary, middle and secondary schools, particularly in the Central Valley region. This innovative program recruits and prepares mathematics and science majors for teaching careers by providing special coursework and field experiences in K-12 schools in the Central Valley, as well as direct pathways to a teaching credential in California.



The CalTeach offices have moved to Science and Engineering Building, Room 270. If you need to make an appointment to talk about the NSED or NSEC minor, or need some advice on a teaching career, email Chelsea Arnold.

2017 February 17: The CalTeach website is currently undergoing a redesign. Please excuse any errors on our website while we make changes. If you have any feedback about how our website can improved please let us know by emailing us at: calteach@ucmerced.edu
