Enseñamos en el Valle Central
The Fresno State Bilingual Authorization Program (BAP) trains future teachers with the skills needed to support linguistically and culturally diverse students.
It also provides teachers with the skills to communicate effectively with families and have a deeper understanding of cultural competencies.
Currently, our Bilingual Authorization Program is under a course redesgin from a five course pathway to a three course pathway.
If you would like to view our current program requirements for Spanish or Hmong, please visit the Bilingual Authorization program page.

The Enseñamos en el Valle Central Initiative will continue to create connections with partnered high schools to either establish or support Future Teacher Academies. These academies will cultivate a pathway into teaching, either through community college or recruitment to Fresno State through the Enseñamos en el Valle Central Initiative.
If you would like to collaborate with the Enseñamos en el Valle Central Initiative in estabilishing a High School Teacher club on your campus, please email Marivel Bravo-Mendosa at email@example.com for more information.
As part of the Enseñamos en el Valle Central initiative a K-16 counselor’s network meeting has been occurring every semester. Given the current context of continuous change we feel it is valuable to bring together High school, K-12, and community college counselors along with Fresno State faculty and staff in order to broaden collaboration and partnerships. Bringing in all individuals who are integral in helping to cultivate future teachers.
We invite you to be apart of these conversations. We hope it creates future Latinx and Bilingual teachers and cultivates additional pathways into teaching. If you are interested in learning more about this particular K-16 Counselor Network there is a YouTube recording link to the Spring 2020 K-16 Counselor’s Network meeting. Additionally, we have provided links to CBEST/CSET updates, information regarding the current California Executive Order N-66-20 and important resources.
If you have further questions or would like to be part of our K-16 Counselor's Network, please contact Jessica Loera at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Stay tuned for our upcoming Fall 2020 K-16 Counselor’s Network!
In addition to the ambassadors, the new academic advisor will be supporting students feasibility in navigating through the process of obtaining BAP and the multiple subject credential by providing academic resources, information and university resources, ideally before credential admission.
Through our Testimonios we plan to share a humanized and individual look at the Latina/o/x teacher journey. We hope to inspire motivation and interest in the profession. Future teacher students will be able to share their stories through these testimonios and inspire incoming future teachers at Fresno State.
