Over the summer, we decided to make some changes to our flagship blog, Reality 101 for New Teachers. Instead of having veteran special educators blog for new teachers, why not hear from the new teachers themselves?
So, we set out to recruit CEC members to write for the blog for the entire 2009-10 school year, and we were overwhelmed by the response. Out of dozens of excellent blogging applicants, we chose four newly minted special educators – all in their first, second, or third year in the field – to share their teaching experiences with the CEC community.
Next week our blog team will make their debut! We encourage readers, both peer and veteran educators, to get to know these bloggers, offer them advice, and share their own stories through the blog. There will be successes and challenges, ups and downs . . . but no matter what, their stories will showcase just how rewarding a career in special education can be.
