Education Certification - English as a Second Language

In addition to initial certification as EC-6, Middle School, or Secondary teachers, students may earn a supplemental certification in English as a Second Language (ESL) at Baylor. Teachers with ESL certification are in demand in Texas public schools.

ESL teachers work with students whose home language is a language other than English. ESL teachers provide sheltered instruction support to ESL students who are learning both English and subject matter in Texas classrooms.

No foreign language proficiency is required for the ESL certificate.
