Michigan’s list of teacher shortage areas, as identified by the U.S. Department of Education, is dominated by special education. The state needs more teachers qualified to work with students with autism, emotional impairment, cognitive impairment, and other learning disabilities. Teachers hired in shortage areas are eligible for deferment or cancellation of some federal student loans, and an advanced certificate in special education may qualify you to teach in one of these shortage areas.
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, Michigan has almost 10,000 special education teachers, and they average around $58,000 – slightly more than other teachers.
