Hi, I am new to this forum. I am currently enrolled at a community college to start taking classes. Right now I am applying for Teacher Aide positions in the schools around my area. My goal is to become a special education teacher but everyone around me is telling me that it wouldn't be a good decision right now because of the economy. Did any of you new teachers have problems finding a job after graduation? Also, is more schooling involved in most states to become a Special Educaiton Teacher? Thanks!
