I am a Sociology major that is trying to obtain a Spec Ed job in the Fall. I think I want to do Mild or Interellated, but I am trying to determine which is best and what grade level. I heard of the collab, self-contained and resource settings and I was wondering which is best for a new teacher like me. I was also wondering the difference in teaching Elem, Middle School and H.S. I like older kids but is kind of nervous about Middle School and very nervous about H.S. I thought about teaching maybe 3-5. How is it to teach diff levels and so forth? and should I try to do an Alternative Prep Program versus just doing a Provisional while enrolled in School? I would appreciate the responses! Thanks!
