Title or Position (e.g. Teacher, Parent, etc.):
VI Teacher/Certified O&M Specialist/iCanConnect Trainer
Level of Students:
I am a graduate of Boston College with a Master's degree in Rehabilitation Teaching. In over 30 years in the field, I have provided services to blind and visually impaired children and adults and their families in the areas of early intervention, case management, rehabilitation teaching, low vision clinical services, and school-based services. I am a National Board-certified Teacher of the Visually Impaired, and two years ago I went back to school to earn my ACVREP certification as an Orientation & Mobility Specialist. I am employed as a TVI/O&M Specialist for the School District of Pickens County in SC, and I also do contract work with The Vision Institute of SC, a non-profit agency for visually impaired individuals. I have always had a keen interest in technology, and am so excited to see the worlds that have opened up for my students and clients through the use of technology. I am definitely a lifelong learner and get about 95% of my best ideas from colleagues, online resources, and most importantly, my students and clients!
