TESOL Intensive Teacher Institute (ITI)
The TESOL Intensive Teacher Institute (ITI) program, offered in partnership with the New York State Education Department and New York City Department of Education, offers current content and classroom teachers the opportunity to achieve additional New York State certification in teaching PreK-12 English to Speakers of Others Language (ESOL).
Over a five course sequence, you will learn the skills necessary to teach English to speakers of other languages using specialized methods and techniques that differ from those used by teachers of English to native speakers. You will also receive specialized mentoring and coaching feedback throughout the program. Upon successful completion of the program, graduates are eligible for New York State certification in ESOL as an additional license.
The TESOL ITI program is only open to certified teachers who are currently teaching in NYC DOE schools. Tuition is significantly subsidized by the New York State Education Department (NYSED). Coursework begins in the spring semester (typically and end of January) and is completed in 3 semesters (spring, summer, fall).
