Where and How Will You Find a Teaching Job?

California employs around 315,802 teachers to educate its 6.2 million students in over 1,037 school districts (Source: California Department of Education, CalEdFactsIcon indicating a URL to an external Web site).

While all the subjects taught in the public schools are important, there is a greater shortage of teachers in math, science, special education, bilingual education, and career technical education. Some geographical areas like rural and urban areas have unique staffing challenges. Those school districts need teachers.
