I loved reading about two of our CCB graduates, both Marty and Melissa.
They are both strong, ambitious blind women who have demonstrated their
ability to work effectively in their chosen careers while still contributing
to the NFB.  They are truly changing the lives of blind people and sighted
people wherever their lives take them.

I love stories about successful NFB folks.  Employment is still a major
barrier for all of us.  My congratulations and love go to both Melissa and
They make us proud.

Hello Everyone,

Blind Coloradans are employed in a broad spectrum of jobs.  Sharing
employment experiences can encourage blind individuals who are seeking work.
Employment possibilities and opportunities are very often elusive to say the
least.  I think it is perfectly acceptable to "brag" about blind
Federationists who are successful in their jobs.

These short introductions are my first"brags":

Marty Rahn is in her second year as a teacher of blind children at the
Colorado School for the Deaf and the Blind in Colorado Springs.  She is a
grad of UNC in Greeley, Colorado.  She started her teaching career as an
itinerant teacher traveling 4 counties and schools on a weekly basis in
Northeastern Colorado.  She has her Masters Degree and Certification as a
Teacher of Blind Children.  Marty enjoys her profession as a teacher and
appreciates the support of her friends through the NFBCO.  She is very
involved with the Federation's Dog Guide Division activities.

Melissa Green is in her second year as the Director of a Montessori School
in Greeley, Colorado.  She has Her Masters Degree and Teacher Certification
from UNC.  Melissa teaches Pre-school age children along with performing her
administrative duties and responsibilities for the Montessori School.  She
keeps very busy with her extensive Federation activities and NFBCO Dog Guide
Division interests.  Her Federation friends and administrative/teaching
profession are most important to Melissa.

I encourage you to share individual's employment  success stories with all
of us.  Good news is always welcome!
