STUDENTS NEED YOU

California needs 33,000 new math and science teachers over the next 10 years

The Need

EnCorps was founded in 2007 in the San Francisco Bay Area and has served the Golden State since then. Although Silicon Valley and Silicon Beach are rich in tech industry, and the west coast fuels biotech innovation, California students are struggling in STEM fields.

Only 40% of students in California met or exceeded the math standards in spring 2019. In addition, California alone needs 33,000 new math and science teachers over the next 10 years.

California bodes our largest cohort of Teaching Fellows and alumni teachers making a remarkable impact on education. In San Diego, Krisztina Hagey was awarded the 2020 San Diego County Engineer’s Council Outstanding K-12 Engineering Educator. Ms. Hagey teaches math & engineering at Hoover High School in San Diego. In Los Angeles, within the second largest school district in the nation, two EnCorps teachers were recognized as LAUSD Rookies of the Year: LaTeira Haynes in 2017 and Yujia Ding in 2021.
