When a student truly connects with a teacher, magic can happen. This is perhaps most true in special education, where it takes a very certain magic to reach students with additional needs and help them find success. As a Blugold enrolled in the special education program, you will find multiple avenues to explore and develop into that teacher you strive to become.
You may discover your passion through a student organization that connects Blugolds to community youth with additional needs. It could be found in an immersion program in Scotland where diving deep into holistic education theory ignites your passion. Whatever opportunities you choose, you will be inspired to make a difference in the lives of the students you serve.
