About Teaching Credentials
The Teaching Credentials Branch prepares teachers and leaders to be agents of change, committed to social justice, equity and inclusion in culturally and linguistically diverse schools and communities.
Our vision is to be the regional leaders in preparing and developing excellent teachers. In collaboration with our schools and communities, teachers prepared at Sacramento State create and sustain equitable inclusive educational environments which are designed to optimize access and student success.

Research shows that students who have two consecutive years with an effective teacher experience success as learners, regardless of factors like poverty and English proficiency.
