The objective of this research is significant because it derives the core competency factors that members of education communities must have in order to form warm education communities through investigating the perception of special education teachers. To achieve this, 352 special education teachers and teachers working at special education institutes were asked to record three of the most important factors out of a total of 18 factors that members of an educational community considered to be required in order to form warm educational communities. IBM SPSS Statistics 23 was used to analyze the collected data. First, in oder to examine the demographic characteristics of the educators surveyed, frequency analysis was conducted. Second, frequency analysis on the factors that special education teachers considered to be most important to form a warm education communities was conducted by teacher experience and type of education institute they worked for. When analyzing the research results of main factors that special education teachers considered to be important by teacher experience and type of education institute they worked for, responsibility was confirmed to be the most important factor. The second most important factor was communication and the third most important factor was responsibility and trust. In summary, the research confirmed that if mutual trust between the members of an education community can be established and if problems can be solved through cooperation and through open communication, and if each member of the community serves their role responsibly, a warm education community can be formed.
