PHILOSOPHY OF SPECIAL EDUCATION 2 As I approached this assignment, I spent many hours thinking about what my teaching philosophy was. As I thought, I continually thought of my goals, my ideas of what my classroom might look like, what it might be like in my class and what my intent for teaching was. This essay will enlighten my readers as to where I see myself as a Special Education teacher, my classroom and the passion within my heart. The purpose of attending a graduate program in Special Education is to provide a level of learning so that I may become a certified teacher in Special Education, grades 1 through 6. Special Education teachers are those who want to help students with disabilities (SWD) achieve the level of education they deserve through individual support and a diverse academic environment. SWD are students who have a disability related to emotional disturbance, anxiety, learning, hyperactivity and so many other classifications. The common denominator in all SWD is they each have a desire to learn and can learn with the help of individualized support. Every child has a story relating to their disability, home life or simply the fact of who they are. As an educator is it my responsibility to get to know each of my students, learn their struggles, learn their triumphs and most important commit to helping them find their true potential.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
