Teaching special education may be one of the most challenging, and most rewarding, careers you can pursue. Being a special education teacher requires commitment, compassion, focus, and exceptional organizational skills. Special education teachers can make a real difference in the lives of their students if they are fully prepared and fully committed to help students who need their talents and training the most. The Special Education Major leads to an Intervention Specialist License (Grades PreK-12).
