In order to teach special needs a High School Diploma andBachelors in Special Education is needed. A teacher in Davidson County,North Carolina averages around $33,000 a year. Ms. Kennedyworks close to or more than50 hours a week. Spending ten or more hours outside of the classroom. The amount of paperwork that a special needs teacher does is unbelievable.

There will be good and bad daysbut never give up on showing these children love and affection. Be sure to complete your internships. These will be an important part of your career. Pay attention to your studies and learn what is needed to do your bestat your job. Good luck!"
