    Children who have special needs dont learn as fast as average children. So to give them extra attention and care there are special education teachers.
    I chose this career because I have a little brother who is eleven years old. I have gone to many special Olympics and a few of my brothers classes. I enjoy helping my brother learn new things so I think a special education teacher would be a good job for me.

    Specialized Computers (larger screen and keys)- Many special education children have a tough time relaying what their trying to say to people. So some teachers used to use picture boards, but now many use specialized computers.
    Laptops- Some special education have begun to use laptops instead of textbooks. These laptops help to make the students more motivated.

    After everything I have learned this job is still appealing to me. Its still appealing to me because I like to help people and I like to help people who are like my brother. My personality was the guardian, and I was under the category of the protector. One of the suggested jobs for protectors was education. Also protectors are known to deal with disability and neediness better than others. They are very serious about their jobs as well and will work hard.
