ELL Teacher Education
ELL and Bilingual Teacher Endorsement Program
Interested in working with culturally and linguistically diverse students? This program prepares you to become an English Language Learner (ELL) teacher, sometimes referred to as an English as a Second Language (ESL) teacher. While the program focuses on K-12 ELL education in the United States, those interested in bilingual education, teaching English overseas and working in adult ELL programs would benefit from the coursework.
Nationwide, there has been a 95% increase in the number of K-12 ELLs enrolled in U.S. schools since 1990, with over seven million ELLs currently enrolled in K-12 schools. Future projections of growth in the ELL population are high, and many areas in the nation are experiencing significant shortages of qualified ELL teachers. A career in ELL education opens up many doors for employment in a fascinating and growing field!
