If you have already earned a bachelor's degree or higher and seek Illinois Type 04 Teacher Certification only, successfully completing Kendall's certification-only track will qualify you to apply for the Illinois Type 04 Teacher Certification. If you also seek endorsements or special approvals for your Illinois Type 04 Teacher Certification, Kendall has options as well. You may choose to take four additional courses in Special Education, which will allow you to apply for an Early Childhood Special Education approval on your certification. If your passion is working with children whose primary language is one other than English you can choose to take additional courses in English as a Second Langage (ESL). This leads to an ESL or Bilingual endorsement on your teaching certificate. Kendall's School of Education is approved by the Illinois State Board of Education for its certification preparation program that leads to Illinois Type 04 Teacher Certification.
