Im in college in special education, I'm wondering what I need to do to land a teaching position in special education and what job prospects are like.
I am 48 and thinking about going for Special Education program. However, friends told me that sped jobs are exhausting. Do you know anyone who worked as special education teacher AND retired on this job? I worried if what my friends said was true, then I might work a few years and burn out before I retire. Is it better if I go for Mild and Moderate disabilities such as ADHD and Autism?
I graduated as PE/Health Teacher last year. Like previous posts I am extremely disappointed for the fact that I can not land a teaching job.
That aside I am thinking strongly of pursuing a masters in special education to hopefully land me a job.
If I go after this will it be easier for me to get hired?
Do they teach all grades and subjects or just specific ones? Also, do they usually have large classes or teach students on a more individual basis? Is teaching special education a rewarding job?
I am in college to become a teacher. I like keeping an eye on the local districts regarding new happenings and what jobs are available. I noticed that around the end of the school year there were several Elementary Education and Special Education job openings in my county (8 at the time). They were all filled - the last of which was filled the first week of school.
My question is this - If the school filled all of the positions this year, how likely is it that jobs will be open in those fields next year? How do jobs open up for teaching?
I already have my Bachelor's degree in paralegal studies. I have always wanted to be a special education teacher, but i chose to be a paralegal instead. Now, after working as a paralegal, i know i made the wrong decision and would like to go back to school for special education. Are there any jobs in the profession that i can obtain while i'm in school working toward my degree? I would really like to gain experience working in the field. Preferably in Ohio area. Any input would be greatly appreciated.
I just graduated with my AA in Psychology, but plan on going on to receive a dual major in Education and Special Education. Is there any jobs that I can do now that would benefit me going into education?
I am wanting to teach special education. My advisor told me that he strongly recommends getting a bachelor's degree in elementary education and then a master's in special education. However, I don't want to get my master's degree, at least not immediately after finishing my bachelor's. Are there any special education teachers here who only have a bachelor's?
Thanks for your time!
I'm starting a job in Deerfield Beach FL, and need to find a place to live with good special-education programs at the middle-school (8th gr) and high-school (9th gr) levels. My kids have been in both UK and CA special-education school programs, so this is what I have to compare to (if that helps).
I understand Deerfield beach is in Broward county, surrounded by Bucks, and Palm Beach counties. Do the towns/cities in those counties break their schools into catchment or homeschool enrollments. If so do you have to apply for permits to go to different schools and are they usually approved?
What can I do with a bachelors in psychology and my masters in special education?
I will be graduating in 2013 but i just wanted some ideas. I know i want to work with special education children and im double majoring in psychology and french.. I am also going to graduate school to get my masters in special education ... What are some choices in jobs?? Thanks!
I have no desire to further my career at the high school level. I would really like to get into some type of professional job (financial aid office, recruiting etc.) at a community college, but I'm not sure how to go about doing so. Also, I'm afraid to take a pay cut. I have a bachelor's degree in Business Administration and an Alternative Master's in Special Education. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

My mum has been fostering special needs children since I was 8, I'm now 18. I love what she does. I love special needs children, I think they are gorgeous.
One of our fostered boys is in the special needs class at school. I love his teachers, I think they do an awesome job with him and all the other kids and I think I want to be a teacher in the special education unit at a primary school.
What qualifications would I need?
I am teaching a special education class on job retention skills. We are now on interviewing. I am looking for a fun (and easy)way to teach them the basics of interviewing. The class is at different functioning levels. So the easier to understand the better...Maybe role playing? Or is there a free online source where you can download free full educational videos that I could show?

I am a sophmore in highschool and special education and elementary school, expecially special ed elementary school are my passion. I would love to make a job out of it. What degrees should I attain for this goal/what schools can help me to that occupation?
I'm really interested in teaching special education. Now, I do have some experience working with kids with disabilities. I volunteer with a therapeutic horseback riding program, and I have really enjoyed it. But I realize that teaching would be quite different. I would really appreciate some information about the pros and cons of the profession. For instance, I've heard that there is a great deal of paper work. Is this true, and does it detract a lot from the job?
I already hold a bachelors degree in secondary education for history. I am looking to become certified in special education (k-12) in order to help me get a job. How is this certification possible to obtain?
The majority of my work experience is working as a CNA (certified nursing assistant). I am interested in becoming a special education teacher, and have a bachelor's degree in another area. How can I get experience prior to earning my certification?
I have applied to quite a few jobs as a paraprofessional- no luck, just yet. Any other suggestions?
