The Future of Teaching is in Your Hands!
Thanks to the assistance and generosity of our many educational partners, we are making a difference. We invite you to see how, by joining us in our annual Celebration of Teaching at CSUSB, where we define the future for our students. During the Celebration of Teaching Event, local district representatives will share information on job prospects and the increasingly attractive compensation packages many of them now offer to newly hired teachers. This will also be a great opportunity to network with other students, faculty, and staff as well as current teachers, counselors and administrators from local school districts as you explore the possibility of teaching. Raffle prizes will be awarded. The event is a partnership between the CSUSB College of Education and College of Natural Sciences, and is supported, in part, by a Department of Education Advising 4 Undergraduate Success (A4US) grant.

Meet the Speakers
The next generation of highly qualified teachers are not hard to find. They are here, our diverse CSUSB students from all walks of life who are highly capable and driven to pursue excellence and share their passion for learning. With encouragement and support from our trained staff, advisors, faculty, and administrators, we can help these students develop a love of learning into a love of teaching and pursue the honorable and rewarding teaching professions. The need for teachers—especially those from underrepresented and minority backgrounds—has never been greater. To that end, we are pleased our Celebration of Teaching event can play a robust role in uplifting and assisting the next generation of educators forward, toward a brighter, diverse future.
