What Can I Do with a English as a Second Language Endorsement - Arizona Department of Education, Endorsement?

If you are interested in providing ESL instruction in public schools, you need either a bilingual or ESL endorsement. The ESL endorsement requires that you complete coursework, including foundations, ESL methods, linguistics, culture, and assessment of limited English proficiency (LEP) students. Studies will also require teaching reading and writing to LEPs, and a practicum in an NAU-approved ESL or bilingual setting at the appropriate grade level. This endorsement program can be embedded in the following degree programs: M.Ed. Elementary Education or the M.Ed. Bilingual and Multicultural Education.

Please be aware that to receive this endorsement, you must also be certified to teach elementary, secondary, or special education; the endorsement alone does not certify you to teach in Arizona.
