Host Teachers

Are you interested in supporting the next generation of outstanding math and science teachers? Become part of the UCSC Cal Teach community and host a Cal Teach Intern!

Local math and science teachers are an integral part of the Cal Teach program. We depend on veteran secondary school teachers to serve as mentors to our interns and we are always eager to collaborate.  

During field-based internships, host teachers open their classrooms to Cal Teach students, offering guidance and support as they begin to learn about middle and high school education. Cal Teach interns work in the classroom for 2-4 hours a week during an academic quarter (10 weeks) to observe, engage with students, and learn pedagogy through real life experiences.

If you are interested in having a Cal Teach intern in your classroom, please email Melissa George, Internship Coordinator, at
