Why does Steve Ly's campaign flyer have "teacher" listed but no one can tell me his credential area?

I believe he's a teacher of foster kids for the county office of education.

To me teacher indicates a credential. There are support personnel that help students in foster programs that don't have a credential. I think it is misleading to use the title "Teacher" if you don't possess a credential. I still can't get a straight answer and that is a red flag for a school board candidate.
