Level of Students:

About Yourself: 

I have been employed as a TVI at the Wisconsin School for the Blind and Visually Impaired since 2003 and currently am the Assistive Technology Instructor for the school.  I became a CATIS (Certified Assistive Technology Specialist) in the summer of 2017.  I work with students ranging from 5 to 21 years of age on a variety of topics including touch typing, keyboard commands for AT software, use of braille notetakers, using switches/communication boards, and tablet/phone accessibility.  Basically, if the students need to learn to do it, I am willing to teach it, even if it means I have to actually learn it first!  I love my job and enjoy teaching just as much as I enjoy learning new things.  In my spare time, I enjoy reading, knitting, and fostering cats/kittens for the local Humane Society.
