Earn money while earning your credential in one year.

Put your science, technology, engineering or mathematics (STEM) degree and knowledge to work by changing the lives of urban high school students. A unique program, Transition To Teaching Online (TTTO) at CSUDH prepares you to become an effective STEM teacher in just one year, and get paid while you're finishing your credential. 

If you've ever dreamed of becoming the kind of teacher who inspires students to learn, TTTO will get you there with:

Full Salary and Benefits

TTTO participants work full-time as teachers in high schools across the state of California while earning their credential. What's more, they earn full salary and receive benefits while teaching.

Flexible Classes

Developed by CalStateTeach and CSUDH College of Education faculty, the TTTO Curriculum is self-paced, self-guided module-based curriculum and is completed online to accommodate the full-time schedules of participating teachers. The spiraling nature of the curriculum will allow candidates to revisit concepts, gaining deeper understanding of pedagogy and teaching practices. Expert instructors are available to help guide you through your coursework.

Hybrid or In-class Option

We offer our candidates two options, Hybrid (online coursework and monthly meetings to supplement instruction) and In-class (all coursework is face-to-face).  Choose the option that is right for you.

Clinical Experience

Through the TTTO Lab School, candidates will gain valuable teaching experience by putting into practice the theory learned in the modules in a real life teaching setting.  Candidates will be assigned to instructional teams, lead by a master teacher, to deliver a STEM-based curriculum at a local partner school.

Complete Your Credential in One Year

TTTO's accelerated program means you'll complete your preliminary Single Subject Credential in just one year.

Individualized Coaching

TTTO participants receive three years of individualized coaching from classroom and subject-matter experts. Your coach will be available to help you learn the ropes, build your confidence, meet the challenges, and reap the rewards of teaching in today's urban high schools.

Advising at Every Step

Your advisor will help you at every step of the journey as you make the transition to teaching--from applying to CSUDH to enrolling in teacher education courses to applying for a teaching position.

Tuition Reimbursement

All participants receive a $5,000 stipend (plus qualify for the TEACH Grant - $4,000). 

Strong Support Network

You'll emerge from TTTO as a member of a strong peer network that supports your success throughout your teaching career.
