We are seeking a faculty member who can instruct and supervise teacher candidates in the Teacher Education Program's Bilingual Authorization in Spanish Program. This candidate will also instruct other courses in the Teacher Education Program and the Department of Education's graduate and undergraduate programs as needed In the Bilingual Authorization Program specifically, this faculty member will teach courses in bilingual education and bilingual teaching methods, work with local districts to find placements for bilingual teacher candidates, and supervise candidates in their fieldwork. In addition, this faculty member will ensure the program meets all requirements necessary to maintain and grow the program, including meeting accreditation requirements, supporting student and staffing needs, and fostering the expansion of program partnerships. This faculty member will ensure that the course offerings in the existing Bilingual Authorization in Spanish Program meet the Teaching Performance Expectations (TPE's) as outlined by the Commission on Teacher Credentialing and build or expand existing course offerings to ensure alignment. The faculty member will also have opportunities to collaborate with colleagues throughout the Department and School of Education to create courses in bilingual and multilingual education, and conduct research.
The ideal candidate for this position will have experience teaching diverse learners in Spanish-English multilingual educational contexts and in preparing bilingual teachers. We welcome applicants for this position who have a strong understanding of the historical and current contexts of bilingual education in California, a broad theoretical knowledge of the development of bilingualism and culturally and linguistically sustaining pedagogies, and experience working in TK-12 educational settings. We especially value candidates who actively center racial, class, linguistic, and cultural diversity in their teaching and service in order to prepare teacher candidates for teaching in a multilingual society.
The Teacher Education Program (TEP) at UCSB prepares approximately 90 teacher candidates to earn a teaching credential in one of the following areas: multiple subjects teaching (MST), education specialist in extensive support needs (ESN), education specialist in mild to moderate support needs (MMSN), single subject teaching (SST) in English language arts, history social science, math, science, or Spanish. Candidates from each of these programs who are bilingual in Spanish can pursue a bilingual authorization through participation in the Bilingual Authorization in Spanish Program (BASP), which involves coursework and fieldwork in bilingual classrooms.
