Start A Rewarding Career Teaching English To Non-native Students

Approximately 11 percent of U.S. residents are foreign-born. Of that 11 percent, 20 percent speak a language other thaneducation-degree-graduate English (James Madison University, 2006). As a result, many schools are finding that they need to accommodate children who don't speak English. That's why graduates of an Early Childhood Education degree with an English Language Learner specialization are so demanded.

Impacting Lives

Schools need teachers who can create ways to effectively teach English to children. As a teacher in this specialization, you can have a lasting impact on students learning English through teaching learning success strategies, which will better prepare students for their future educational accomplishments and challenges. Additionally, you'll facilitate involvement with parents and encourage them to take an active role in their child’s development. A rewarding career teaching young children to speak English can allow you to help others and make a lasting impression on their lives.

Looking to Start Your Education?

Look for a college with a curriculum based on National Association for the Education of Young Children (NAEYC) standards, which will ensure that your education is as relevant and valuable as possible. For a career teaching young children, you'll need to eventually get the Child Development Associate (CDA) credential, so degree programs that focus on preparing you for the exam may be beneficial.
