Reviews of BEEd in Special Education graduates:

G. E.
◈ Studied Bachelor in Special Education
◈ At Central Philippine University
◈ Graduated 2012

list bulletAbout my college education:
College is a happy roller-coaster ride. Experience is the best teacher indeed. And I was overall in awe of what college imparted to me.

I have learned that you will not enjoy college if you are not happy with your chosen course. You have to love what you do.

In order to succeed as a college student? Skills and hard work are natural if you allow yourself open to learning, dedication and a motivation of self-fulfillment. But what I have and need was all the while with me - God. And I don't need anything else.

list bulletMy current job:
I'm currently Teaching now as a SpEd and preschool teacher.

list bulletAm I using what I learned in college:
Yes, I actually used things I've learned in college. The knowledge imparted and the basic know-how's such as making of Individualized Education Program for each SpEd student and how to handle each of them.

list bulletHow long did it take to find a job after graduation:
24 days (I didn't even applied! Talking about God's favor.)

list bulletDo I recommend studying BEEd in Special Education:
I would recommend my course only to those who love Teaching, children, and have great patience within them. Teaching is by far the most fulfilling profession of all!
In case of salary level, I think it is only applicable in other countries. SpEd teachers here earn less but do the most tiring work ever. The ironic part is - if you truly love teaching, you don't fret for the child's improvement and learning is what makes you stay in the teaching field. As I have said, it is a fulfilling profession.
