Hello everyone!

I'm Angela and I'm currently studying to be a special education teacher. I am married and have three children and one on the way, no issues.

I currently attend a liberal arts college so I have no idea where I want to teach, where to start, etc. I will be looking into getting my Master's in Teaching as soon as I graduate.

hi angela,

i follow you in the august ddc. i just wanted to encourage you in your endeavor to be a spec ed teacher. it is so gratifiying. i worked as a para-pro (read that as t.a.) in southern cali for over 11 years. to say i loved my job is an understatment! i worked in a school district that allowed me to have a huge amount of freedom teaching as well as with a SE teacher that could trust me with backing her up in every way. i had my own groups of kids that i specifically did pull-out with, as well as a lot of one on one. i also sheltered the 504 kids when i could (there came a time when the policy was that i could not assist the 504's but i did anyway). my DIL, lissy, is in university looking forward to a teaching career in the near future. i think they will ultimately end up in WA so there is not shortage of teaching jobs there. i don't know where you live but i definitely don't recommend cali at this time- they are laying off teachers as well as many admin/classified staff due to our state being broke. its tragic for the kids.

good luck!

Thanks!! I am currently in WA State... I'm not sure how exactly I'm going to pursue my goal, but I'm definitely thinking of going with the Master's degree and then going for special ed, that way I'm completely ready.

Thanks again for your help
