Preparing Teachers for ESL Licensure

Teacher Qualifications

The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education requires teachers of English for English language learning to be licensed in English as a Second Language (ESL):

“English as a Second Language (ESL) is a required component of Sheltered English Immersion (SEI). ELS instruction is delivered by a licensed ESL teacher” (Massachusetts DESE).
