Becoming an ESL, Bilingual/Bicultural teacher one day at a time. This site is for future teachers and teachers of English Language Learners/ CLD. You will find resources in English and in Spanish that can serve as a guide in your journey.
The first time I visited the UNC website, I was so overwhelmed with the amount of information there. I decided to use the search bar and just type what I was looking for.
In the School of Teacher Education page they have what they call “Checkpoint courses” there are 0 credit courses you have to take. For each checkpoint, there is paperwork you have to do to help you get your teaching license. Below the list of checkpoints, you can click on a career mayor you are interested in; in my case I clicked on the Undergraduate, Elementary Program and find out what courses you need.
When you meet with your advisor for the first time you will go over your 2 year plan (if you are a transfer student) and your 4 year plan (if you are a Freshman). Keep in mind that it is a “career plan” things can change in your college years, just keep an open mind. You’ll advisor should explain when you have to take these courses. Once registered you will receive an email with deadlines of your documents and things you need to look over.
These are some steps that helped me:
Hope these steps give you a piece of mind in your career journey.
