Credentialed teachers traditionally came from college and university-based programs that put students through a rigorous training program that include subject proficiency, education and pedagogy classes, and supervised student teaching. In an effort to assist school districts in finding qualified candidates, alternative routes to credentials have been developed.
Our program is designed for teachers wishing to complete their California Preliminary Credential while teaching full-time. ESI is a two year program for Special Education credentials in which interns gain expertise in teaching through coaching, suppprt and by completing coursework each year. Teachers are employed as interns in Special Education classrooms during the day while attending credential classes two evenings per week.
