From my Factoidz Pages: A special education teacher will undoubtedly have a class filled with children that come to school with varied disabling conditions, temperaments, skills and abilities. Some students will arrive with emotional/behavioral disorders that may or may not have been yet diagnosed. Others may have physical or heath impairments that require specialized equipment. As broad as they are, the teacher needs to be aware of the definitions and characteristics of disabling conditions. Additionally, the teacher must have in his or her tool box strategies for creating and maintaining a classroom where expectations are high, motivation to learn is fostered and every child is embraced and accepted for who he or she is. The teacher should be ready to meet the child where he or she is and guide that student to a new more skilled and independent place.
