Respond Effectively to the Needs of Non-Native English Speaking Students
Significantly improve the lives of students struggling to learn English by obtaining a Post-Baccalaureate Teacher Certification in Core Subjects EC-6 with ESL Supplement from University of Houston-Clear Lake. Often, ESL students are too intimidated to participate fully in the classroom, and the insightful communication and management skills you have acquired from your previous profession could make the difference for a child struggling to learn English. The skills and life experience you bring to your classroom, combined with the instruction you'll receive from dedicated faculty will ensure that all non-native students you teach will become fully proficient in English.

These lower-level requirements are described in the Core section of the catalog.
