English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) Endorsement

Off-campus and online courses provide educators with flexible ways of earning their ESOL endorsements. 


This program has changed the way I teach. I am now more aware of my students’ individual needs. I use a variety of teaching strategies throughout the school day, and I have a greater focus on their home lives.
