I am very excited to be a student in the ARC program at SPU. I am seeking an endorsement in Special Education K-12. Teaching is a new career path that I am very pleased to be embarking on. In making this career change, I have been fortunate to be able to volunteer with a wide range of diverse groups of students in various settings. Through these experiences I have been drawn towards special education and the numerous possibilities that this field offers. I also feel extremely fortunate to be currently employed as a Special Education Assistant in an urban public middle school.
