Come Join the Ranks of Industrial and Technology Teachers!

Teaching in the State of California, like many other states across our nation, is in crisis. Few teachers are being prepared for teaching in Industrial and Technology Education (ITE), and many jobs go unlisted because teachers and administrators despair of finding a well-trained candidate

Teaching in ITE and VocEd is a wonderful profession: Interesting, fun, and rewarding.

As ITE teachers retire, there are few candidates to replace them. Join this great profession!
