Reviews of BEEd in Special Education graduates:

Aurene Jamil
Studied BSEEd in Special Education
at Xavier University , Cagayan de Oro
Graduated: 2007

About my college education:
I was first hesitant in choosing special education as my major since it would be more challenging than regular education. But I wanted to know more about special children and their process of learning and so I took the challenge and glad that I did. Throughout the course, I have not just learned the different specialties of children but I have learned to love them as well. Some cases, like the deaf/mute was hard since we needed to start from scratch as to learning how to communicate and teach them. But overall, our major classes were the best subjects throughout the course.

My current job:
I am currently working as a customer service representative for a telecommunications company.

Am I using what I learned in college:
Yes. It somehow molded me as a person that I am now; socially, spiritually and mentally.

Because of what I have gained in school, I am more confident in facing all the challenges that my chosen career throws at me.

How long did it take to find a job after graduation:
Before I graduated, I already found a job and was scheduled for training right after graduation.

Do I recommend studying BSEEd in Special Education:
I would recommend my course to other people who have the passion to teach especially those who have the heart to teach special children.

If you don't have the patience and the determination to help these children, then this is not for you.

Teaching is a noble undertaking. It is not just a job to fulfill but a service.
