Our Teachers

Breakthrough SJC trains college students to teach in the summer and school-year programs as part of the program’s unique students-teaching-students model. With guidance and support from directors and experienced professional instructional coaches, college students shoulder the responsibilities of full-time educators as they implement curricula, plan daily lessons, oversee student behavior, and commit their time to helping younger students follow in their footsteps on the road to college.
