Special education teachers should ask themselves and their prospective employer several key questions to determine if the job will be a good fit.


While it might be tempting to do, never round your GPA on your resume or other applications documents. Employers trust teachers and teacher candidates to be honest and ethical; don't risk being ruled out because you've stretched your GPA beyond its actual value.


A person's chronological age is simply a number, which is never 100% good or bad when it comes to searching for a teaching job. Rather than worry about your age factor (young or old), concentrate instead on all of the strengths and skills you possess and work hard to make these clear in your application materials so that school administrators will want to meet you to learn more.


Maintaining a journal of your student teaching experiences - good and bad - will allow you to reflect upon those experiences, and to grow as an educator.


Tips and advice regarding what student teachers should do during their placement/s, as well as what not to do to put their best foot forward.
