Voices of the online master’s in secondary special education program: Tim Wealton, Graduate of the Program

As a high school teacher who worked in a life skills program with students with low incidence disabilities, KU graduate Tim Wealton realized what he really wanted was to be able to focus on the transition needs of his students. When he was looking for a master’s program, he wanted a program that did more than just boost his salary.

“I wanted to find something that was really meaningful for my instruction. And the way that the KU staff and the people behind the curriculum and program itself designed everything, was to allow for a very challenging but still accessible program.”

Tim found that the content was meaningful and he was able to implement the course readings, discussions and learnings in real-time with his own students.

To hear more from Tim about his passion for helping students with low incidence disabilities reach their full potential, and how KU’s online master’s in secondary special education and transition helped him increase his impact, watch his full response in the video below.

And that’s just what one of our online graduates has to say—hear from Dr. Rick Ginsberg, dean of the University of Kansas School of Education and Human Sciences, about how KU prepares current and future educators to spearhead positive change in our blog post here.
