  • Teachers-TESOL Info

    Licensed Teachers,GMCS is providing a great opportunity for licensed teachers to receive their TESOL endorsement. Our goal is to dramatically increase the number of TESOL endorsed teachers in the district so that we can improve instruction for our students. Therefore, GMCS has engaged in an incentive program that reimburses tuition costs for teachers upon completion of TESOL coursework. San Juan College has offered GMCS a fair cost for tuition for course completion required by NMPED. This includes coursework of 6hrs in both Methods and Assessment.  

    I am encouraging teachers who are in a position to obtain TESOL endorsement to enroll and register for courses. Tuition is $220/3credits in state and out of state is $575/3 credits. Again, this cost is reimbursed by GMCS upon completion of the course. In addition, we will provide you the TESOL addenda of $1600 while enrolled in this program. 

    Current Fall 2017 enrollment is only at 9 students for both courses offered and we do not want to cancel these courses this fall semester due to low enrollment numbers. We hope you consider this opportunity. The course enrollment is now open through the end of this week. For further information please contact Sandra Freeland at:
