Armanti Hardesty is ready to join the next generation of teachers.

“We’re all going into a more technological age,” said Hardesty, an alumnus from Long Beach. “It’s great to have new teachers learning the best ways to help students.”

Hardesty left UC Merced in May with a degree in sociology and a minor in natural sciences education, and is planning to enroll at Fresno Pacific University to pursue a multi-subject teaching credential. He’s one of nine other students headed to that university. Their path to teaching was guided by the campus’sCalTeach/UC Science and Math Initiative.
