alright good job, man. least from what I have seen around here in North Texas, there aren't many special ed teachers that are male. in all my certification classes men comprised 5-10% of the students. in my graduate classes, i was the ONLY guy in like 18 of the classes..which wasn't a BAD thing...and now out of 2 diagnosticians and 8 teachers and 5 teacher's aides, there are only 3 of us that are men (1 diag, 1 teacher and 1 aide)
honestly, there is a real need for men in the high school SPED ranks to really work with these kids that need the most help
hang in there
