Tony Mayer, Director of Student Services in Hudson, steps into the batter’s box to raise diversity awareness within the community to support students with visual impairments.
Thank you for your interest in the Instructional Coaching program!
You may have a protégé or coach working in your district, CESA or company, or you may be interested in supporting a new teacher. We know that it is important to recruit and retain teachers in education and we are excited to be part of this effort to support teachers who serve students who are blind and visually impaired!
A July 2016 memo on emergency licensing, from the Department of Instruction, states that an individual with a bachelor’s degree going through a preparation route to licensure will be considered qualified (to teach) under four conditions. One of these conditions is that the individual:
“Participates in a program of intensive supervision that consists of structured guidance and regular ongoing support for teachers or a teacher mentoring program”.
This is where WCBVI Outreach comes in!
In an effort to align the practices and supports that are required for new teachers in all districts, WCBVI is pleased to coordinate vision-specific instructional coaching for our new and emergency-licensed Teachers of the Visually Impaired and Orientation & Mobility Specialists!
