“LC State was a great school to be at as I worked toward getting my minor in special education. The classes I took have been beneficial to me as I have started my first job as a special education teacher. I think one of the best features of the program is the internship portion. While you can learn so much from textbooks and in a class, being put in a special education classroom with an experienced special education teacher is the best way to learn the ropes of special education." - Stephanie Roeper ‘18
