Olivet College introduces new special education major
Sep 12, 2007

The Olivet College Education Department is offering a new special education major this fall. The major, which was approved by the state of Michigan last spring, was created in order to meet the demands of local school districts that indicated the need for teachers of special needs students. This program will provide students with a foundation in the knowledge, skills and application requisite for all special education teachers, as well as those specific to the area of emotional impairment.

To help teach courses within the major, the college has hired Wayne Buletza, Ed.D., as an assistant professor of education. Buletza, who is an expert in the field of special education and emotionally impaired students, was serving as the associate superintendent for Eaton Intermediate School District (ISD). He is an experienced K-12 educator for emotionally impaired students, having worked as the director of special education services and the special education supervisor for Eaton ISD. He earned a bachelor’s in elementary and special education, a master’s in educational psychology and doctor of education degree from Western Michigan University.
