NNELI offers professional development in STEM and ESL for licensed, practicing K-12 classroom teachers. Teachers who hold a current ESL endorsement, have taught for three or more years, and teach in Title 1/STEM -designated schools or schools with at least 25% ELs are eligible to apply. (Bilingual teachers preferred.) Successful applicants will receive advanced training, including strategies for working with ELs within STEM content-based disciplines and the development of Academic Language with ELs. The program provides financial assistance toward courses and books, and is open to a limited number of WCSD teachers. Teachers from other districts or private schools in Northern Nevada who meet eligibility criteria will be considered if there is space.

These graduate level courses, specially designed by NNELI, in collaboration with the Washoe County School District (WCSD), will focus on:

  • Inquiry Instruction
