While gaining advanced skills that are immediately applicable in the classroom and your school, you’ll study how to develop effective learning and behavioral interventions, differentiate instruction, provide ability-appropriate accommodations, and collaborate with fellow educators to help special needs students meet their full potential.

MSED and EdS in Teacher Leadership Graduate
Being able to exercise, rehearse, and express my ideas regarding my passion in education has been a reflective process. I realized we should all aim to effect positive social change in our communities. If we leave a positive mark, then our job has been done well!
Having a master’s degree that focuses on the specific age group I teach has been extremely valuable to my employer, my students, and me. I am a better-prepared teacher and better able to meet students’ needs because of my coursework through Walden.
Walden’s instructors are there to assist in your education. You are never alone in your journey.
