I'm a special education teacher, with a Masters degree in special education. There appears to be five different endorsements under special education for the DoD, which are:

0415 Assessor (Special Education)

0417 Teacher, Severe/Multiple Disabilities

0420 Mildly Learning Imp

0423 Teacher, Moderately/Severely Learning Imp

0427 Emotionally Impaired

After they evaluated my certification and transcripts, they only qualified me under "Mildly Learning Imp." As I work to get other endorsements, does anyone know which Special Ed endorsements have the most demand?

SpedTeacher74 I'm really enjoying the co-teaching a lot more than I thought I would. My co-teacher is a first year teacher, so I was afraid in the beginning it might be tough, but he's probably the best first year teacher I've ever seen. I do have to handle a lot of the discipline issues though, partially because a lot of those kids are on my caseload and becaus...See More
