Loyola offers MEd in Teacher Leader and ESL

Beginning spring 2015 the School of Education will offer an MEd in Teacher Leader and English as a Second Language (ESL) with dual ISBE endorsements in Teacher Leader and ESL. The program is exclusively offered through Loyola’s School of Education.

The teacher leader master’s degree is specifically designed to provide candidates with the knowledge and skills to effectively teach English Language Learners (ELLs) in multiple contexts (P-12) while also providing the candidates with the knowledge, skills and dispositions to effectively lead, supervise, and advocate in school and district-wide programs that serve English Language Learners and their families.

Applications for the January 2015 Vernon Hills cohort are being accepted now. The program is available through Chicagoland Partners for English Language Learners (CPELL) program. CPELL partner district faculty and staff who meet the eligibility requirements will receive a discount on Loyola tuition for their specific program. Read more about the CPELL program.
