Become a Teacher

As California experiences a shortage of teachers with backgrounds in math, science, bilingual education, and special education, as well as with identities that better reflect the increasing diversity and multiculturalism of today's K-12 students, there is no greater time than now to become a transformative educator. At SJSU and the Lurie College of Education, we have numerous teacher preparation programs for you to start or continue your journey towards pursuing equity and social justice in education.
