My Plan: I’m going to go to Delta for my first year or two to do my pre- requisites & other classes. After that I plan on transferring to SVSU to finish the rest of my degree. It usually takes about 5-6 years to complete a special education degree, because you have to take different classes than regular teachers. You also have to do a whole year of student teaching rather than only a semester which is what regular teachers have to do. Five years is awhile to be in school, but in the end it will be worth it because I’ve always wanted to be a special education teacher, & I’m really excited to go to Delta this coming fall & get started on it.
