I recently came across an opportunity to use my second certification, secondary special Ed at the school I already teach at. My problem is I have been sped certified for 8 years, but have remained a general education teacher. I am torn between doing what I have done for 11 years now, or switching to the sped teacher for our high school. I have no real experience in being the sped teacher, it would be a completely new experience for me. I feel uncomfortable or perhaps unconfident with this change but I would like to explore this, and make myself a more well rounded teacher in the process. Have any of you made the switch from general education to special education at the secondary level? If so, what advice do you have for my decision on this?
