Angelica Jewell's insight:

I think this website is perfect! it helped me and i'm not even a special ed teacher yet! it tells you how to deal with the stress that this job causes. its 5 steps to help you from going crazy. the first one is called "Understand that it is not about YOU." that's saying that you need yo remember why you started teaching in the sped area in the first place. then t says that you need yo make sure that you make friends with the gen ed teachers because they can really help you so you don't feel so alone. the second step is called "Realize you are not alone." that step is saying that it's easy to feel isolated and alone in this job, but that the teacher just needs to remember that they have a big role in the education system. the thirst is called "Develop your Personal Learning Network (PLN)." that one is giving you websites to help with your learning community. the fourth is called "Have high expectations of yourself and your students." that's talking about not giving up on a student just because they aren't as easy to help as other students. and not to think that something is wrong with you because you can't help everyone. the fifth one is called "Make friends with General Education Teachers and then collaborate with them." that one is talking about how talking with gen ed teachers can help you because they have a different environment in their classroom and it can help you with your class. great tips!

Special education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Special education - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

In most developed countries, educators modify teaching methods and environments so that the maximum number of students are served in general education environments. Therefore, special education in developed countries is often regarded as a service rather than a place. Integration can reduce social stigmas and improve academic achievement for many students.

Angelica Jewell's insight:

this website helps me because it basically tells you everything about being a special education teacher. first it tells you what a special education teacher is and that is the practice of educating students with special needs in a way that addresses their individual differences and needs. then it tells you how to identify those specific students, methods and strategies to help those students. also, it talks about what kind of issues they could have, and it gives you references to help with more questions.
