I was emailing in hopes of receiving some suggestions/ tips from blind educators who are already working in a public school. I recently graduated and I am searching for a teaching job in KY. I am certified to teach English grades 5-12, and from what I have heard, I am the first blind educator in the state to search for a position in a public school. I have had several interviews this summer, but I have not landed a job.
Does anyone have any suggestions/ tips? I fear that principals may fear giving me a position because I am a first year teacher and I am blind. I have also stated, when asked, that a growth area is classroom management, which I think concerns some principals, but I feel like that is very typical. My strengths are in my content knowledge and teacher/ student technology use.
Thanks for any help
