Special Education Trainee Teachers’ Perceptions of their Professional World: Motives, Roles, and Expectations from Teacher Training
The aim of this study is to examine how special education teacher trainees who were about to begin their training perceive their professional world. The findings revealed that participants described the world of special education as being very closed, consisting of only teacher and students, completely devoid of any learning environs or community and organizational systems. In the world they described, special education teachers serve as role models for others, and devote their lives to their students. Unlike their expectations that they will be working in a closed environment in which they are solo players, they will have to work in complex, multidimensional working environments that also comprise children without special needs, other teachers and professionals, parents, and members of the community.
