I have had many jobs over the years. After my children left home I went
back to college online and obtained my certificate as a teacher of children
who are visually impaired. This is my first year as a teacher. I work with
three totally blind students. One student is in a college prep program and
plans to study to become a music therapist when she begins college. The
other students have additional disabilities so are in special education
classes. My job is to provide training related to their visual impairments
and to support their classroom teachers. I find many teachers are
intimidated by visually impaired students in the classroom.
