Special Education Teacher Resume

A special education teacher has to teach youth with physical disabilities both at the basic and the advanced levels. For children with hearing or speech disabilities, the teacher has to learn and use special techniques to read lips or sign language and eventually, reading and writing in Braille. The teacher must be able to teach children these special communication systems. In some cases, the students can also be adults that have lost their eyesight at certain points in life. In addition, the teacher must be prepared as any teacher to teach primary school subjects (math, literature, physics, chemistry, geography, history, foreign languages, etc).


The special education teacher has to make a curriculum, to set objectives for each lessons and to evaluate the student's results and performance. In addition to instruments used in general by any teacher, the special education teacher must consider the special needs of his students. Text readers, voice activation software, special equipment for the method of writing and printing in Braille, are just some examples of tools used in teaching.

If you are interested in teaching students with special needs make sure you presented your great abilities of teaching and of understanding the needs of your students. A great advantage will be to possess knowledge in advanced teaching methodology, psychology or speech therapy.
