Are you interested in teaching children in kindergarten through grade 8 in multilingual classrooms? This two-year program begins in the fall or spring semester and culminates in both a Bachelor of Arts in Education and an Elementary Certificate K-8 with an ESL endorsement once all certification requirements are complete. During all four semesters of the program, you work in schools with diverse populations of children and teachers who are invested in supporting new teachers. The ESL endorsement prepares you to teach all children.
