Position description

The Education Department at the University of California, Santa Cruz (UCSC) invites applications for an ongoing pool of Supervisors of Teacher Education in Math and/or Science. Responsibilities include supervising student teachers in middle and high school classroom settings; teaching the beginning, intermediate, and advanced student teaching seminars at the University; and serving on Education Department committees. Supervisors are also responsible for assisting credential candidates to complete a comprehensive assessment of their instruction based on the California Teaching Performance Expectations.

The Department prepares approximately 65 credential students per year for teaching in K-12 California public schools. The program, which also grants a Masters of Arts in Education, operates on a year-round schedule (summer to summer). The University of California, Santa Cruz, a Hispanic Serving Institution, serves a mix of suburban and rural schools in which many students are immigrants or the children of immigrants. We are committed to inquiry-based pedagogies for preparing teachers to improve the education of linguistically and culturally diverse students and promote equity and social justice. More information on the department can be found at

Supervisors of teacher education may hold full-time (100%) appointments during the academic year. Appointments are based on student enrollment and are typically less than 100% time. In which case, accepted candidates may also apply to the Education Department’s Lecture Pool if they would like to be considered for an additional appointment as lecturer.

Applicants who are authorized bilingual teachers (BCLAD or equivalent) are encouraged to apply.

Internal candidates will be given priority consideration.

The hiring unit will not sponsor employment-eligible immigration statuses for this position.
