Editorial Reviews

Those who are successful special education teachers have many, many wonderful and unique talents. You do not just decide to become a special education teacher on a whim. The career picks you-either through firsthand experience or, as in my case, just always knowing from a very young age what you wanted to do. Those of us who are special education teachers/administrators have jumped in with both feet. There is no only going part way. For me, it became a lifelong commitment to see that my students were as successful as possible.
