The TELL (Teaching English Language Learners) Certificate Program is designed to prepare teachers to meet the needs of English Language Learners in their classrooms. The Program consists of two courses and a 10-hour, non-credit training in the Massachusetts English Language Assessment-Oral (MELA-O) leading to certification as a Qualified MELA-O administrator. These requirements satisfy the Massachusetts recommendations for skills and knowledge for teachers of English Language Learners.
Teachers interested in enrolling in the TELL certificate program should hold Massachusetts certification in Reading, Early Childhood, Elementary or Secondary Education.
