Folks, two of my professors so far have said that I have the perfect background, even gift, for special ed.

I recently looked into a Masters in Special Education myself. I plan on getting my Masters from the same university where I received my Bachelors and their SPED certification program is very rigorous. It probably depends on what university you'll be attending to get your degree; there are several people in my family who are SPED teachers or have their SPED certification and I know they've talked about how much work it involved but I don't think any of them regret it.

It depends on the individual state

I think the others have offered good advice. Check with the university and the state department of education to see what is required for licensing and what

I went straight into teaching SPED with my Bachelor's degree so can't offer you any pointers.

It would be at least a 2 year, full-time class load.
