Endorsement in Teacher of Students with Disabilities (TSD) Elementary Education

About the Program

The Teacher of Students with Disabilities (TSD) Elementary Education enables students to teach Special Education at the elementary level. The program will give you a wide range of opportunities, such as teaching in a resource room, self-contained setting, or a general education inclusive classroom.

The TSD Endorsement can only be combined with programs following a content major coupled with Education and an Endorsement in Secondary or K-12. The endorsement requirements are included in the Education Programs with Elementary Education.
