    I have worked as a vision teacher since 2006.  I began my career at the New York State School for the Blind in Batavia, New York.  I obtained this position based on the experience that I acquired as a reader for a blind professor while obtaining a dual Bachelors Degree from Buffalo State College in Elementary and Special Education.  During my first year at NYSSB, I completed a graduate level program through Hunter College to obtain my Teacher of the Blind and Visually Impaired certification.
                
    After completing this program I moved to Florida and began teaching in a combined 3rd-5th grade classroom of students who were losing their sight to degenerative eye diseases at the Florida School for the Deaf and Blind.During my two years at FSDB I continued my education by taking several ESL certification courses.In 2003, I returned to Western New York to obtain a Masters Degree from the University at Buffalo in Early Childhood Education with a Literacy Emphasis.I also returned to my previous job at NYSSB for the summer school session.In the fall of 2003, I began working as a special educator and vision teacher at the Olmsted Center for the Visually Impaired Preschool.I worked there for three years before beginning my current position as a Vision Teacher with the Kenmore Tonawanda UFSD.

     

    I look forward to applying my knowledge and experience to help your child further his/her educational career while promoting his/her visual independence.
