Earning an add-on certificate in reading, ESL, bilingual education or structured English immersion (SEI) can help you advance your teaching career in Arizona. According to the U.S. Department of Education, elementary reading specialists were one of the teacher shortage areas for both the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school years. Further, the State requires all teachers - regardless of subject or area - to have an ESL, bilingual education or SEI endorsement to teach. ESL and Bilingual teachers were also in demand during the 2010-2011 and 2011-2012 school years. Arizona's state report card shows a large number of elementary students lacking reading skills. According to the Department of Education, a whopping 44 percent of fourth graders read at below basic level - only 25 percent of fourth graders in the state read at a proficient or advanced level. By earning an add-on certificate in one of these reading-intensive fields, you will prove useful to your district and your students.
