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

The Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) endorsement enables you 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. You must hold an Ohio teaching license. 

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