Teacher Tuesday

- Every couple of Tuesdays, we will feature a current or former student from the special education Program to share why they chose special education and why they chose UW-Madison.

  Graduate student Katie McCabe     

Katie McCabe is a current doctoral student in our Special Education Ph.D. program. She currently supervises our student teachers in our Bachelor's and Master's programs. 

Why Special Education? My interest in special education came from my passion for social justice and equity and my relationship with individuals with disabilities who have positively influenced my life. 

Why UW-Madison? I moved from Syracuse, NY to attend grad school here. I choose UW Madison because of its rich history in education and I wanted to be a part of that legacy. I'm so humbled every day I am able to walk through those iconic red doors.

Assistant Professor, Dr. Aydin Bal Receives School of Education Community Engaged Scholarship Award
Dr. Bal, professor of Special Education, works with schools in the implementation of a framework for Culturally Responsive Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports to address disproportionate impacts of school discipline on youth from nondominant cultural and linguistic backgrounds. He recently co-authored an article in the Review of Educational Research (journal of the American Educational Research Association) which offers a new way of assessing the cultural responsiveness of research  ​in special education.
