I think you're the same one I saw on nabs ACB list.
Welcome. I'm not teaching, but as I have  a passion to
help kids and adults learn, and have comtemplated grad school, I am on the 
list to learn how you teachers do it.

I'm in search of a job before trying grad school.
If I ever taught professionally, I'd either teach writing as that's my 
strongest area; maybe reading, or being a TVI.
I could even see myself teaching kindergarten.

I am wondering if your english for speakers of other languages class is 
volunteer. When you say its community based, I suspect it is.
What exactly do you do? How did you access the curriculum?
I think it would be impossible to teach them reading and writing as they 
cannot verbalize what is there. Well, maybe advanced speakers, but not 
I think if I volunteered for ESL, I'd focus on speaking and listening.
ESL is a very good thing to get involved  in and its nice to see another 
blind person doing it.
It’s a lot of work but really makes a difference in someone's life.

What are you studying? I think you're at liberty, right?
I know a blind student studying history there and can connect you two if you 

Take care.

My name is Miranda, and I am currently assisting in an English as a second
language (ESL) class for adult English language learners (ELL's) in my local
community. I am studying to teach ESL as part of my college education, and I
am completely blind. I have joined this list to connect with other teachers
who are visually impaired, and to possibly connect with anyone who is
teaching in the same subject area as well.

Thank you, and I wish each of you a Happy New Year!
