Special Education Teacher
Student enrollment in kindergarten and elementary schools is expected to increase over the coming decade. At the same time, schools will place increased focus on evaluating curriculum and teacher effectiveness. This presents an opportunity for professionals with training in teaching and education. The number of education, training, and library occupations is projected to grow eight percent from 2014 to 2024, about as fast as the average for all occupations. About 697,600 new jobs are projected to be added from 2014 to 2024. State and local accountability measures – such as test scores and graduation rates – and the need to translate data and results into actionable goals will prompt the need for instructional coordinators and mentors for both staff and students.

I homeschooled both of my sons and as they got older, I really wanted to invest in my family’s future using everything I’ve done through homeschooling. Granite State’s undergraduate education program was a natural transition for me.Heather Roberson|Class of 2018
