When I was in elementary school, I was a special ed. student. I was in a pullout classroom through second grade. After I was mainstreamed, I went to resource room a couple of times a week through fifth grade. During that time, I learned a lot of wonderful strategies that have helped me both as a student and a teacher. In fact, I think that having those experiences have made me a better teacher because I have been able to identify with the special ed. students in my classrooms and have been able to teach them the same strategies that I learned as an elementary student. Were any of you special ed students, and if so, do you feel that your experiences make you a better special ed teacher?
