    I just recently took and passed the K-12 ESOL exam. I was originally under the impression that I could apply for the ESOL endorsement on my certificate (b/c I also took 2 ESOL classes). However, now I find I am eligible for an ESOL certificate, not endorsement. Does anyone know what that means? Is it worth applying for? Thanks.

    I have the endorsement on my certificate. The difference is with the endorsement you do not have to pay every five years like you would need to with certification.

    With the certificate every five years you will need to use 120 MIP points (i think thats the correct number) and then pay to have it added to your certificate again. With the endorsement (which you get by taking classes, in my county at least) it is on your teaching cert. for as long as your cert. is active.
