A Message to California Teachers

Teaching is both a career and a calling. In these pages, I hope you can find resources designed to take you through the various stages of this important work, from becoming a teacher through working with students and pursuing professional development. For example, you will find here information on the Common Core State Standards, age-appropriate reading suggestions for your students, and a list of trainings offered around the state. We want to support you just as you support your students. —Tom Torlakson, State Superintendent of Public Instruction
