Hmmmmm... well for starters, the human resources department all to often
sees the blind teacher at a disadvantage in all to often sighted individuals
believe you need your sight to teach, especially in the lower grades.
Believe it or not this was told to me over the phone by the head of hr in a
local district I live in, despite my dual masters in education.  Perhaps you
and I could speak off line. Feel free to contact me at

Nobel members and contributers,

    My name is Peter, who is a sophomore in a major university. My
major is social science/history education for my under graduate
degree. I was wondering what you guys thought about that as a viable
major for a blind teacher and in general as teachers or students
yourself? There will be no minor because I've got a total of 73 hours
left to go and I think minors by and large are pointless. What are
some common challenges that blind teachers face in a public, private
or non-profit setting being a teacher in elementary, secondary or
post-secondary facility? Thanks for all of your post as long as they
are constructive.
