Children in special education face many challenges in their education, social life, and future. Most of these children are poor and do not have good role models at home. They struggle to learn how to read and excel in math. They learn inappropriate behaviors that pull them away from their peers that end up having negative consequences as they get older. I have seen these individuals graduate from high school and not know how to write and do simple intermediate algebra. I have seen them make poor decisions and end up with the wrong crowd and with a criminal record. These children need excellent teachers as good role models—someone who teaches these children to excel through their disabilities and succeed in a suitable career path.
Special educators are the immediate support channel to these children in the classroom. Special educators recognize the child’s social challenges with their peers and reinforce appropriate behaviors to succeed in the classroom environment which will help the child later in life. Special educators recognize particular learning challenges and finds a way to turn these into a strength and have the child feeling adequately and successful.
Most of these children are discouraged and need the proper role model to believe in them and feel successful with their peers and their intellectual abilities and foster in them as sense of hope. Being a special education teacher is an extremely rewarding field. This is why I majored in Special Education and have two semesters left to graduate.
