In the field of Special Education, should I receive my bachelors degree and begin teaching or get my Masters Degree before teaching

I would like to begin teaching right after my bachelors degree to help me start earning money to pay back college loans, but I heard that it is difficult to teach and work on your masters degree at the same time. #special-education

Thank you comment icon I believe you should get your Masters Degree before you start teaching because many people will look and see what type of education you have before hiring you. Besides that I believe that the bachelors degree is just the beginning and you where you learn the basic's of your career that you chooses in your case Special Education. Lastly, if you are planning on completing your Masters degree I don't you will have time for teaching and studying both take a lot of time and dedication. But it's up to you, good luck. Fatima

I think it depends on your schedule. I've always studied and worked at the same time and now I'm used to it, but it's not easy. You can get your bachelors and start teaching. That teaching experience will be an advantage to you, allowing you to reflect upon your Masters in a more deeper way. If you do it like this, make sure you'll be able to dedicate time to your masters. Otherwise, I'd get a bachelors and the masters and then start teaching.

In my opinion, I would say that you do not need a Masters Degree before you go into special education. Schools are always in need of special education teachers. A lot of the time, depending on the district, they may pay for you to go back to school and receive your masters degree. You can go back for another degree when you have time and more experience as a special education teacher. I wouldn't say that there is anything wrong with going and getting your masters first though. It can depend person to person and their situation.
