ESOL Training

The ESOL Training prepares teachers to serve students who have special needs because they enter the school system speaking a native language other than English.

Effective teachers strive to create inclusive, effective learning activities for all students. ESOL certification and endorsement guide your tailoring of instructional support to help the language learner master content and overcome social barriers to participation in classroom learning activities.
