As society continues to globalize, teachers encounter an increasing number of non-English speaking students in schools. With a supplemental ESL certificate from University of Houston-Clear Lake, you’re able to help foreign students grasp English more quickly, keep up with their classes, and integrate into your school’s culture. This supplemental certificate will give you the foundation to augment your skills and increase your value in your school as an ESL educator.
