Professional Career

Special education teachers usually work in secondary or elementary schools with students with mental or physical disabilities. Teachers teach students course prospectus at each student’s pace and help students improve basic life skills, so they can function independently beyond the classroom. Special education teachers normally work on a permanent basis following the school district’s academic schedule. They are typically off during summer vacation and school holidays, but may have additional work or meetings to attend during the summer.
