Earn between $50 and $75 an hour on your own terms, that is, when you wish, where you wish, without any imposition, quota or participation fee.  The charity Optimizing Education, Montebello, California, is co-developing a service for teachers in the classroom, "teaching tours", whereby interested retired teachers, using WiFi, Skype, FaceTime or Google Hangout, would give real-time tours to teachers and children hundreds or thousands of miles away, thereby enriching children's learning without teachers and parents stressing about cost, available time, health or safety.  This service would be useful for underserved children, special-needs children--in fact, most every school-age child.

This service is in development.  Essential to its success is feedback from retired teachers.  There is a quick, anonymous, six-question survey.  Please take the survey at this time.  If your last name ends in A through M, please go to .  If your last name ends in N through Z, please go to .

CalPREP Needs Volunteers!
Posted 2/23/16

CalPREP is a one-on-one mentoring program that is geared towards providing students in 5th-8th grade with information and support regarding college and careers. Many of the students we are working with are first-generation students here and might not receive this kind of knowledge from their parents or community. As a result, the college attendance rates in the area are pretty low. CalPREP Volunteer Mentors help inspire these students to see college as a possibility, acting as their personal link to the world of higher education!

This is a great opportunity for CalRTA members to stay in touch with their communities and passion for teaching/mentorship. We have several school partner-sites throughout Napa and Sonoma counties, for those volunteers interested.

Puppy Kisses Needs Your Help!
Posted 2/18/16

Volunteer opportunity

Make a difference in children’s literacy with the Puppy Kisses™ children’s short story ‘dream big, change the world’ literacy story project.

Children literacy – Making a difference

What if it was fun and easy to make a brighter future for children?  What if your efforts inspired just one child to be a better reader and writer? What if your efforts inspired thousands of children for improved literacy? ‘What if’s’ are thought provoking starting points to make a difference, at Puppy Kisses, we want the ‘What if’s’ to be reality with your help.

How You Can Help

We are looking for enthusiastic experienced education volunteers who have a flair for writing and literacy to help develop example stories and templates for the Puppy Kisses ‘dream big, change the world’ literacy story project.

About the literacy project

This project empowers children to write inspirational short stories about school life to be published on-line for other children to read. Children choose one or more of the six Puppy Kisses characters to tell their inspired stories. Each puppy has a unique set of characteristics that children can relate to and personalities to express their own personal experiences. This is what makes the Puppy Kisses short stories a valuable literacy tool for self-expression.

Why use Puppy Kisses characters rather than just writing stories of personal experience?

  • Using the puppy characters, students have a sense of creativity and freedom when expressing their own personal stories through each of the characters.

  • Each short story has a framework for literacy learning, including the use of the characters personas as well as a teachable lesson told by the student themselves regarding school life, friendship and achievement.

  • The Puppy Kisses puppy characters storyboard provides a fun community of literacy writing and reading for students and educators to participate in.

  • The Puppy Kisses characters are easily relatable to by children as friends and story tellers.  Cora, Tess, Jacob, Scarlett, Emily and Zach all of which are BFF's for life and love school.

Contact Puppy Kisses

Contact Puppy Kisses at

About Puppy Kisses™ - Say hello to Puppy Kisses, an exciting new social movement where we promote inspirational messages and stories around literacy and schools for children using the Puppy Kisses band of puppy characters.

Puppy Kisses is proud to support community events such as the upcoming FRATERNITY DAY OF SERVICE Silicon Valley Children's Literacy Event.
