"English as a Second Language (ESL) teachers are involved instructors who enable children from different backgrounds to learn English for use in everyday life. In an interview, expect to answer questions about your teaching style, philosophy towards ESL, and ability to connect with students on a personal level. It's helpful to know that nearly all schools require some level of ESL certification and public institutions also require teaching credentials."
