Teachers connect in classroom and beyond

Pension Sense blog | April 29, 2020

We celebrate educators at CalSTRS all year long, so we wanted to give you some extra kudos to celebrate National Teachers’ Day this May 5.

Your love for your students and passion for education are particularly evident during these challenging times.  

Despite social distancing, teachers up and down the state continue to provide connected educational opportunities. In-person lessons have given way to remote learning and digital platforms. Because of you, students are still learning everything from their ABCs to advanced math and are participating in virtual labs and field trips.

By continuing to further your students’ education remotely, you’re also providing continuity in their lives. California appreciates you.

That spirit is the reason we come to work at CalSTRS every day: to do our part in protecting your financial future. You deserve a secure and enjoyable retirement. As you continue to discover creative ways to educate from afar, we’ll keep working tirelessly to look after your pensions.

When you have time, remember to check out our online resources related to COVID-19, including information on CalSTRS’ Contact Center, online services, school closures and service credit, and our investment portfolio.

We want to care for you and your families as much as you care for your students.
