The 2017 POSB (Principals of Schools for the Blind) Conference will be held at Texas School for the Blind and Visually Impaired (TSBVI) April 2-5, 2017. This event will take place just prior to the NCTM Annual Meeting set for April 5-8, 2017 in San Antonio, TX (about 100 miles south of Austin).
- To build community and a support system among teachers of the visually impaired. Often, teachers feel isolated and don’t have easy access to other teachers for guidance and support.
- To provide professional development opportunities. The “POSB Institutes for Instruction”would include a training component, focusing on a particular area of instruction to inspire teachers and provide them with tools to improve their instructional practices.
- To establish online communities for individual disciplines in order to provide ease in communication and to share documents and other materials related to instruction.
