Christy Chamberlain, a graduate student in the Special Education program, is not a nervous test-taker, but she did want to ace the Special Education Praxis exam on the first try. Admittedly, she did have a few butterflies in her stomach on test day.
When she sat down to take the exam, she was pleasantly surprised with how well her Drexel education prepared her.
“As I started the test, I quickly found out that I knew all of the answers,” Chamberlain told Dr. Michel Miller O’Neal, assistant professor of Special Education. “It was really amazing to see each question and remember it being covered [in class].”
Chamberlain says that, based on her experience, the Special Education program provides an enriching, relevant curriculum that graduate students can apply practically in their careers.
Chamberlain says the program prepared her not only to take the exam, but to be a great Special Education teacher.
