Catholic Teacher Resources (CTR) is a non-profit organization located in the Archdiocese of San Francisco, California USA. Since 1970 we have provided Catholic resources to assist Catholic teachers in implementing religious instruction using technology in the classroom.
Our CTR website was launched in September 2009 for all the Catholic K-8 schools in the San Francisco, San Jose and Oakland dioceses. The proceeds from this website provide multi-media equipment to our inner city schools.
In 2011 we decided to share these popular resources with other K-8 Catholic schools around the country and internationally. Our content provides a uniquely Catholic faith-based perspective by using interactive resources, which bring our Catholic teachings alive in your classroom.
At CTR we know how important it is to focus on teaching the whole child and have provided lessons that align with classroom teaching as well as nourish the soul. We strive to bring you innovative, standards-based content that engages all learning styles with a clear focus on our Catholic faith.
All of our materials provide a stronger Catholic identity for all students as they continue to develop their faith foundation while incorporating the use of technology in the classroom.
