The landscape of foreign-born students in US schools is the highest it has been in a century. Never before have immigrant populations grown faster than today. Both Latin America and Asia remain the highest influx of English Language Learners (ELL’s) in US schools. The steep demand for ESL teachers has skyrocketed this decade. Teachers earning ESL certification find the advancement of status, salary and job security a plus in addition to helping foreign-born students become fully integrated into American classrooms.. Every state has issued an ESL policy or recommendation for teachers and every state as of 2018 has a shortage of ESL trained teachers with experience.
Schools making a commitment to granting their teachers funds to further their knowledge and skill level of competency in the classroom of English Language Learners are revealing a deeper respect for improving our immigration policies and standards. Teachers with advanced ESL certifications are considered for positions that are the most coveted and admired programs in the PK-12 school system. These ESL programs help foreign-born students excel at the same rate as non-english language learners.
