Keeler, Kristy M.
ProQuest LLC, Psy.D. Dissertation, Capella University
The purpose of this study was to increase understanding of the lived experiences of special education teachers. The Giorgi phenomenological model was utilized for this qualitative project. The study looked in detail at the lived experiences of five special education teachers actively working in Pennsylvania schools. Information gathered came from in-depth interviews with the teachers who shared candid views and perceptions of their experiences. It was predicted that they would provide unique perspectives to the experience, including positives and challenges that they live daily. Knowledge gained from this project should provide knowledge of common fundamental themes unique to this sample.
