Special Education Teacher Blogs to Follow

Special Education blogs

There are so many great reasons to be a Special Education Teacher! OK, the paperwork gets completely overwhelming, but there's nothing like helping kids who've lost hope find success, who've had a fixed mindset find a growth mindset and who have lost faith in themselves believe in themselves again. Is there any way to describe that feeling?

I'm a high school special education math teacher and know that confidence is everything. When kids know they CAN do it, real learning starts to happen and it's magic.

Connecting with other Special Education teachers on Facebook and reading about their experiences is great for a few reasons. The job gets tough so it's nice to be able to relate to other teachers going through the same thing. 

I also believe that necessity causes Special Ed teachers to be extra creative in order to reach students. They are always filled with great ideas that make difficult subject matter relatable and fun. Here are some great blogs written by some even better Special Education teachers.

    1. I'd love to add your blog! What grade/s do you teach?

    2. Thanks for responding and offering to add my blog! I teach 4-6th grades, although it fluctuates each year, so I don't have my grades too specifically targeted in my blog. I would say I'm in the upper elementary group most consistently, like grades 3-5.

  5. Thanks for sharing the educators blogs list on the post, idea is good to have all the information at one place. Keep on sharing the useful information and keep expanding the education blog collection. All the best!

  6. Thanks for sharing such an amazing and informative post. Really enjoyed reading it.
