What Others Have Said
"I am a veteran ELL teacher in North Dakota and I, like most of the ELL teachers that I started with, had no previous education in the ELL field. UND's online programs and their instructors have not only enabled me to be qualified to continue teaching ELL, but also become specialized in the field that I love and have had many years of experience with.
What I experienced through UND's programs was a genuine concern for meeting the needs of the ELL population that we deal with in the Midwest. I consider UND to be a great advocate for our district ELL program and that the instructors have always cared about me personally as well as respected me professionally."
- Carrie Kasowski, ELL teacher, Grand Forks Public Schools, Grand Forks, ND
“The [English Language Learners] program really gave me a leg up. I always knew that I wanted to be a specialist where I could work with small groups of students. The ELL endorsement opened more doors for me.”
- Kerri Whipple, Assistant Director, Bilingual & Language Aquisition Programs, ND Department of Public Instruction
