I have a Masters in Special Ed. and a BS in Childhood education. I was never interested in teaching Special Education, but wanted to get my Masters in it to learn more about special ed because while getting my BS, I was never exposed to it. I am going to be applying to jobs soon in Las Vegas and I'm afraid they are going to put me in a Special Ed. position. How can I say that I don't want to teach Special Ed and want to teach General Ed. without sounding rude and getting turned down completely. I only wanted to get my Masters in Special Ed. so that I could better assist students that were having difficulty in my general ed. classes and to learn more about Special Ed...but now with everyone wanting people who have a special ed. background, I feel like I have messed my chances and will always have to worry about being placed in a special education classroom Please help!
