I want to teach special education, GT, ect. What extra classes do i take?

I'm about to graduate with my associates degree in agricultural science and I'm transferring to another school next year to work on my bachelors (and most likely masters) in Agricultural Education. I was also wondering about teaching special education classes, gifted and talented classes, model un, being a counselor, being a principal, things of that nature. Are there special certificates you can get or certain courses to take? I think Special Ed is another degree plan all together but I wasn't sure. I know when I was in school I had one teacher who taught Gifted and Talented in our Jr. High, then Art and Model UN (which is technically a gt class) in our high school. And what do you need to do to teach AP Classes? And if you know of any other certificates and things of that nature that can add on to what I can do as a teacher (like gt) please let me know! I'm interested in being able to do as much as possible. My long term goal is to be a vice principal or principal, or maybe even a counselor. I know all the principals I had were teachers for years before they changed positions. Do you need your masters and a special certificate?
