Job Description for Special Education Teacher, Middle School
A middle school special education teacher typically educates students with disabilities in sixth to eighth grade. These students, normally about 10 to 14 years of age, have mental and/or physical disabilities that make special education outside regular classrooms (for part or all of the day) optimal for their development. The special education teacher helps design and execute a curriculum that fosters achievement and the intellectual development of their students.Read More...
Special education teachers are expected to take a hands-on approach to educating the students in their classroom. This typically involves tailoring achievement goals and testing for each student's unique needs. The special education teacher is expected to closely monitor the progress of students and provide regular feedback to supervisors and parents. For a teacher at the middle school level, the primary focus is preparing students in the program for high school-level special education and developing a continuing written assessment of the students' progress and abilities for their future educators.
Special education teachers in middle schools must possess a strong background in education. Most schools require at least a bachelor's degree in education with an emphasis on special education, and private and charter schools are likely to prefer teachers with postgraduate education and certification. Special education teachers need patience, warmth, and empathy, and they typically work during the school year from early mornings until the evenings. (Copyright 2019 PayScale.com)
