This case study examined one 13-month elementary certification program.
The study highlights teacher educators’ efforts and challenges in providing preservice elementary teachers with opportunities to learn about educating students learning English as an additional language.

A key finding is that all teacher educators felt responsible for and made efforts to guide teacher candidates to educate linguistically diverse students in elementary classroom settings.
However, they did not work toward this goal collectively or cohesively.
