I’ve been on the list, lurking, for a while. Mostly because I’ve been so busy with other things, but my education’s coming down to the wire, and I can put off questions regarding the teaching profession no longer.

I’m a senior in college and am hoping to teach in the elementary mainstream school setting.

My methods courses are coming up—the ones our college makes us take before student teaching but where we’re in a school classroom observing and fulfilling other assignment requirements.

My advisor is really interested in helping me through this process, but she admits she does not know the best way to do so.  I’m not really sure there has been a totally blind person pass through that program, who wasn’t teaching special ed.  

So, what accommodations would need to be had for me to teach mainstream kids?  Any detail, no matter how small, would help here.

Also, what did you all think of the praxis exam?  Did you request any accommodations?  Did it take forever to get them?  When I look at it, it seems it’s a bit more of a pain to register for it, and not as straight forward, if you have a disability than if you don’t.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks. :)
