Peter,  I think, in general, finding a teacher position in social studies or 
history is very difficult for anyone.  There are more teachers than needed 
at this time.  I think you can teach anything you want to teach with a 
visual impairment but you will have to work to sell yourself to the school. 
I found schools a little afraid to hire me because they thought I would 
request all of the same accommodations they provide for students.  If you 
want to be a teacher look at areas where there are teacher shortages in your 
state and think about going into one of those fields.  By the way, history 
is my passion but I am a teacher of children who are visually impaired.

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.
