BE In the know....
Florida and Pinellas County Schools requires all teachers to have a certain amount of ESOL training hours. For many teachers it is only 60 hours, but for English and Reading teachers we are required to have 300. I am currently finishing up my second 60 hours.
By the end of this semester, I will have a total of 120 of the 300 required for all English teachers. By the end of the school year, I will have 180 of those hours.
I am also working on my Reading Endorsement. I am currently enrolled in my first 60 hours, but I will have 120 of the 300 by the end of the school year.
Please bear with me. These classes are both time consuming and costly.
Thank you for your understanding and patience,
