CATE: Chabot Association of Teacher Education

Join CATE and Educate! 

Teachers are society’s heroes. Is teaching your superpower?

CATE at Chabot Gladiator Day

We are an organization at Chabot College whose purpose is to inspire the next generation of teachers. We offer academic and social support to future teachers—holding general and regular weekly meetings, hosting socials, sharing resources and stories, and creating an overall network of support.  We believe in doing community outreach that builds bridges between different ages and groups of people for mentoring, role modeling, and sharing a dream of higher education. Our complex world needs more socially conscious educators, who we hope to foster in CATE. We believe in professional development for pre-service teachers to learn about the field of education, professional requirements, and opportunities. We’d like to hear your ideas on how education can continue to grow to meet the challenges of today. 

Meet others who share a passion for teaching or are interested in learning more about the field by joining us in CATE!
