I am a blind teacher of the blind and visually impaired.  I recommend that 
you don't put it on the resume, but bring it up during the interview.  This 
way you can mention it along with any other leadership situations you have 
experienced, yet not focusing on your rol  as am NFB Chapter President being 
soley a blindness related roel that you have played.

Subject: [nobe-l] resume question

I am in the process of finalizing my resume, in preparation for
applying for teaching positions.
My question is: should I include my association with the NFB on the
resume?  Since I am a local chapter president, I would think that
would show leadership qualities.  However, I do not want them to
assume things about blindness, before I can get to the interview
One of my cooperating teachers did mention my blindness, in his letter
of recommendation.
I have been student teaching, and believe that I can answer their
inevitable questions, as to how I can do the job.  However, I don't
want misconceptions to prevent me from reaching the interview portion
of the process.
Thank you in advance for your thoughts and experiences.
