22-23 Pathway to Teaching – Teacher Candidate
Pathway to Teaching is a one-year teacher credentialing program that operates inside of SFUSD. We are dedicated to meeting the need for impactful teachers by increasing the number of teachers of color in San Francisco. We currently offer credentials in Multiple Subject, Multiple Subject- Bilingual Spanish, and Education Specialist- Mild/Moderate.
Pathway teachers begin their preparation with a seven-week summer pre-service preparation program, complete with fieldwork, coaching, and courses in content and pedagogy. At the start of the school year, they begin teaching as intern teachers in their own SFUSD classroom, supported by a Pathway coach who provides real-time feedback to help teachers quickly improve their practice. Over the course of their Pathway intern year, Pathway teachers also complete credential coursework and state testing requirements to become eligible for a preliminary teaching credential in one year.
