Hello! My name is Bethany and I am an elementary teacher. I am currently taking a special education course called Students with Special Needs. I am trying to learn more about how to best educate my students that have special needs. I was hoping that maybe some of you could help enlighten me. I am hoping to come out of this class with a whole new understanding so that I can make the utmost difference in each of my student's lives. I just have a few questions. First, I was wanting to understand the effects of your child's disability on your family. Next, I was hoping to learn more about the collaboration that you have with your child's teacher. Also, if you have any other suggestions that you would like to share with me I would greatly appreciate your feedback. Thank you so much for helping me be a better a teacher.

Hi Bethany! You've chosen a great career path! I've been a special needs teacher for the past 10 years and I've had so many wonderful experiences. My one advice to you would be care as much as you can about the children you are working with and always maintain a close relationship with the parents.
