A volunteer role with Special Olympics led Sarah Michels, of Iron Ridge, to study special education at UW Oshkosh. Michels was busy with two papers during her last week of school and is student teaching at a high school in Mayville. She enlisted her mom to decorate her cap in a Disney theme. “I loved UW Oshkosh,” the commuting student said. “It was perfect for me.” Michels said she began as a math major, but switched to special education. “I’ve got a lot of job prospects—everyone needs special education teachers.”
