If you want to be an elementary classroom teacher and/or a special education teacher, this program is for you.
At the end of your program, you will be qualified to apply for two endorsements, one in special education and one in elementary education.

Furthermore, you will be prepared to be a special education teacher (e.g., resource room) with expert knowledge of the general classroom operations and communications.
The Special Education Department offers exemplary faculty, small class sizes, and extensive field experiences. Candidates complete their program as thoughtful, knowledgeable, and effective professionals. Graduates from the Special Education Department are some of the most well-respected and sought after teachers in the State of Washington.
