About Yourself: 

While working as a Braille Transcriber for El Dorado COE, I enjoy teaching and creating Braille, producing quality enlarged work for the visually impaired students, and especially, seeing the light go on as children and youth learn concepts. I have discovered that including Braille art, tactile books and drawings, and even music in teaching, can help students to be more engaged and enthusiastic. I believe creativity helps us learn faster because it enlivens the mind and soul.
