About ESLteacherEDU.org

While the United State has always been a melting pot of ethnic and cultural diversity, it is only in recent years that America’s public school system has invested in accommodating new residents and other non-native English speakers. But TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages) programs are about so much more than simply catering to the needs of school-aged children that lack English proficiency. These programs have been created with a clear vision: To ensure non-native English speakers are given every opportunity to thrive during their school years, and to ensure they are prepared to become productive, fully-integrated and successful members of American society.

ESLteacherEDU.org was created with a similar vision: To ensure that aspiring and existing teachers who are called to work with this unique population of students have the resources they need to be successful in their pursuit of ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher certification.

ESLteacherEDU.org serves as a state-by-state guide that details the specific education, examination, and assessment requirements that each state’s Board of Education has established for qualifying teachers for TESOL certification.

Whether you are an experienced teacher looking to add an ESL endorsement so as to be more effective in teaching core competencies, or an aspiring teacher looking to begin your career teaching English as a second language, we encourage you to use ESLteacherEDU.org freely to find the information you need to become certified in your state.
