Freedom Prep Academy Plan for Hiring ESL (English as a Second Language) Teachers for ELLs (English Language Learners)

Freedom Preparatory Academy requires all teachers of any language instruction program for English Language Learners (ELLs) to be fluent and competent in the four domains of language assessed by the English Language Proficiency Assessment: reading, writing, speaking and listening.

A teacher’s fluency in all areas, reading, writing, speaking and listening will be documented and evaluated during the pre-interview / interview process.  Our interview process includes a sample lesson that is developed from the material relevant to the position for which the candidate is being interviewed and will capture three of the four areas (reading, speaking and listening). Our writing fluency is measured during our pre-interview process where the candidates are asked to complete written responses to essay questions.
