You are a life-long learner.

You are looking to expand your career.

You desire to make a greater impact in the lives of your students.

If you are a teacher who desires to work effectively with culturally and linguistically diverse students, the English as a Second Language Endorsement or Bilingual Endorsement is designed specifically for you. In today's changing classroom demographic, you must be equipped with strategies to provide equal access to success for all students. Current educational best practices —including engaged learning, learning styles, technology integration, collegial collaboration, and authentic assessment —are threaded throughout these programs. They incorporate these best practices with interdisciplinary learning. Both programs have similar coursework, but because the Bilingual Endorsement requires fluency in a language other than English, passing the Target Language Proficiency (TLP) test is also required. As a teacher with a busy life, you'll appreciate the flexibility and convenience of this online program.
