A placement in
Elementary School Special Education is a very unique Co-op different from the
traditional teaching placements and provides a more personalized experience.
Working with Kindergarten and grade one-two students with special needs
one-on-one and in small groups provides a great opportunity to build stronger
relationships with students and to know that you are making a difference in
their day. This is a great opportunity to learn about working with others and
also allows you to assess your own personal development and career goals. The
skills learned in any Co-op placement will be beneficial when working towards
future goals and the opportunity is one that everyone should consider taking.
