This program extends your New York state teacher certification to teach in bilingual settings at the same grade levels as your original certification.
Education: B.A., Hamilton College; Ed.M. & Ph.D., State University of New York Buffalo
Teaching and Research Interests: TESOL; language acquisition; bilingual education; elementary education, reading fluency (prosidy), English language learners.
Proudest Moments: Dr. McPhail is proud of a federal grant for more than $1 million that allowed Nazareth College to host the ELL Consortium for 5 years and to begin the bilingual extension program. That program provides an important service to the greater Rochester community in a specialty in which it is perennially difficult to recruit appropriately certified teachers.
Nazareth also offers certification and non-certification programs for Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages.
