Teaching English as a Second Language Endorsement (PreK-12)

Why Choose the Teaching English as a Second Language (PreK-12) Program?

The Teaching English as a Second Language (TESOL) endorsement enables the recipient to teach English as a second language to students in grades PK-12. It is attached to an existing state of Ohio teaching license in a related field. This program is limited to individuals who hold an Ohio teaching license.

The licensure can be done independently or as part of a graduate program degree. Contact Dr. John Haught for details.
