I love being a Special Education teacher. OK, the paperwork gets completely overwhelming, but there's nothing like helping kids who've lost hope find success and ways to believe in themselves again. Is there any way to describe that feeling?
Connecting with other Special Education teachers and reading about their experiences is great for a few reasons. The job gets tough so it's nice to be able to relate to other teachers going through the same thing. I also believe that necessity causes Special Ed teachers to be extra creative in order to reach students. They are always filled with great ideas that make difficult subject matter relatable and fun. Here are some great blogs written by some even better Special Education teachers.
