Hello everyone, I am a freshman college student at a junior college in Los Angeles. Just a few months ago I posted to the Elementary Education board asking for information and advice. I've learned a lot about the teaching profession since then, and I've found myself on the fence between regular elementary teaching, and special ed teaching. I wanted to just ask what special ed teaching is like (vaguely), and what exactly would be considered the "best" educational path towards this goal? I do have firsthand experience in this setting as a student actually (I grew up with mild autism and briefly attended a private special ed school before going back to public school) and admittedly I really find myself drawn to giving back and doing something meaningful like this. And sometimes I think I'd personally enjoy it better than teaching general ed. So yeah, to cut a long story short, anything you think I should know in my decision making would be very appreciated.
