Founded in 2009, Teachers College of San Joaquin (TCSJ) is the first WASC accredited institution to be housed within a county office of education. San Joaquin County Office of Education (SJCOE) in Stockton, CA supports and partners with TCSJ to offer graduate level programs. Teaching and Administrative Service Credentials, Induction (BTSA), Masters in Education and non-degree programs provide a variety of options for those who wish to pursue a career in the field of education.
We believe that all candidates bring rich and diverse experiences to TCSJ. We also believe that if we are going to create schools and curriculum that meet the challenges of 21st century learning environments, that it is important for administrators, Career and Technical Education teachers, and K-12 academic teachers to spend time thinking together.
Everyone's unique set of experiences is recognized and valued; however, as a TCSJ student, your prior assumptions will be challenged by faculty, the research, and by your peers. Rise up to this opportunity—think new, be bold, create! You will be encouraged to examine old ideas—keeping what makes sense and redesigning what doesn't. Know that your contribution will be valued.
TCSJ is a credential granting institution accredited by the California Commission on Teacher Credentialing and is a WASC accredited institution offering Masters in Education (M.Ed.) degree programs.
The TCSJ mission is to develop a workforce of teachers and school leaders who are comfortable with collaboration, understand the need to prepare students for both work and higher education and have the skills to develop, implement, and sustain innovative educational ideas.
TCSJ exemplifies the notion of learning opportunities that are rigorous, provide relevance, are relationship-driven, and incorporate reflection for professional growth.
