Hi fellow educators, In a nutshell, I have a clear CA elementary credential which includes EL authorization. I also recently got an Initial NY license for Childhood Education (Gr 1-6). I've always wanted to teach ELL students, which is what I used to do in CA. However, it seems that I can't teach them in NY with my current certifications. Has anyone else dealt with this? It's confusing and frustrating, since CA has the highest % of ELs in the country and my credential there has an embedded EL authorization. Don't understand why it won't be accepted in NY! If anyone knows what I need to do in order to move into ENL (as it's designated in NY) from a classroom certification, I would greatly appreciate your input. TIA!
