SUNY Brockport’s program meets the academic requirements for adding the Bilingual Teacher Extension-Initial to an existing initial or professional New York State teaching certification except for those certified in a foreign language or ESOL (English to Speakers of Other Languages). Proficiency in a language other than English is required. This program allows you to gain the knowledge, techniques, and skills that you will need to teach in different types of bilingual programs through coursework and field experiences.
