About Careers in Education and Educators Who Are Blind or Visually Impaired

Teachers of every kind are more in demand than ever, and countless adults are pursuing degrees in education. From pre-school to higher education, teachers are vital for the success of our nation as well as for those seeking to improve their chances for getting hired and their and job options.

The one constant thread in all of these careers is that educators are needed. Going into teaching gives you the ability to shape a life for a better future.

Questions: Did any of these stories help you decide whether going into education is the right choice for you? What was it that helped you solidify your decision? Where did the workers get their training and how much did they have to have?

Education Career Cluster Message Board: Ask questions and participate in discussions with others who have vision loss.

Many articles provide a link at the end that you can use to contact the mentor directly.
