Make a Difference With Your Special Education Endorsement and Meet High Demand
The demand for special education teachers is among the highest in the field of education. Because of that, earning an endorsement in special education will make you a highly sought after teacher in the workforce. Driven by understanding and empathy, you can become a successful special education teacher with the one-on-one support you will receive from our education faculty.
With an endorsement in special education, you’ll work closely with counselors and parents to develop individual education plans, which will allow you to work in a variety of environments providing services for students with verified special needs.
Overall employment of special education teachers is projected to grow 3 percent from 2018 to 2028. Demand will be driven by school enrollments and the need for special education services. The national medium annual salary for special education teachers is $61,030 and the median for Nebraska is $53,268.
