We are currently accepting inquiries for our K-6 Elementary MNGOT Reading Corps program. This pathway is designed for non-licensed Reading Corps members with bachelor’s degrees (see Reading Corps website for eligibility). About the program:
MNGOT K-12 ESL is designed for non-licensed district staff with bachelor’s degrees, including paraprofessionals, educational assistants, substitute/reserve teachers, and teachers on a district waiver who are interested in earning a MEd and license in K-12 ESL. The next cohort for K-12 ESL begins Fall 2024. Please contact MPTO@umn.edu to express your interest.
Year One: Work full-time at your school and complete 18 credits of coursework and 100 hours of field experience. Field experience can often be completed at the school site where you are employed.
Year Two: Depending on the cohort and year, there are two options for student teaching while completing the remaining 18 credits of coursework. All student teaching is supervised by the University.
We are able to offer a reduced rate of $600 per credit. The 36-credit program will cost a total of $21,600; this rate will save participants nearly $3000. In addition, working is allowable during at least the first year of the program, depending on individual student teaching scenarios and district employment opportunities. Scholarships are available for eligible students.
