Special education teachers are the best. I know this is a generalization and therefore by nature a false statement. I also know that because I am a special education teacher, this statement may be a little bit biased. I'm OK with that. It's my blog, my opinion. Here's why I think that: Special education teachers are the best because they spend weeks, months, even years teaching skills only to have students progress at a glacial pace and then when they do make progress, they celebrate it like a 30th birthday!
I am a reader. When I am happy, I read. When I am sad, I read. When I want to relax, I read. When I want to learn more, I read. As a special education teacher, here are some of the top books on my reading list. This is not an all encompassing list, this is just a list of the books that have inspired me to be who I am both as a person and as a professional...for me, it's not just a job, it's part of who I am.
