Meets Waiver Requirements?

Hi AK,I taught second grade from 2011-2012 and completed an ESL practicum for my undergraduate minor in my classroom during this time. There were a small handful (4-5) of ELLs in my classroom, and I created curriculum targeted to their needs, but most of my students weren't ELLs. Would this experience meet the requirements for a waiver, or should I plan to do the field experience?Thanks!SaraSee More
