WEST SACRAMENTO, Calif. – Consistent with its commitment to ensuring a financially sound retirement system, the California State Teachers’ Retirement Board today voted to adopt a new set of actuarial assumptions that reflect members’ increasing life expectancies and current economic trends. Today’s decisions were based on the multi-year CalSTRS Experience Analysis, commonly referred to as the experience study, spanning July 1, 2010, through June 30, 2015.
Steve Davis, a bicycle shop teacher at Seven Hills Middle School in Nevada City, California: “This is my passion. I love working with kids and I love working on bikes, and I’m just as fortunate as I can be to do what I’m doing.”
CalSTRS member Dan Bunz has a celebrated past and a secure future. A first-round draft pick for the San Francisco 49ers in 1976, Dan’s football career included a famous game-saving tackle called “The Stop” in the 1982 Super Bowl.
In 1995, Dan discovered his second love – teaching Physical Education at Sutter Middle School in Sacramento. He now also spends part of his time with special needs children at Sutter. For his third act, Dan and his wife, Elizabeth, farm and sell lavender products on their foothill property near Sacramento.
