The National Federation of the Blind Teacher of Tomorrow Program provides participants an opportunity to enhance their educational experience by learning about blindness from successful blind adults, parents of blind children, and blind students. The program addresses questions that participants may have about how blind people succeed in school, how they contribute to their communities, how they obtain employment, how they raise families, and how they manage their blindness so that it does not become a barrier to their success. Further, one of the leading objectives of this program is to share methods on how to discuss blindness with students and how to best encourage them to develop positive attitudes about blindness.
The Teacher of Tomorrow Program also exposes participants to the latest in instructional strategies, access technology, and countless blindness resources. Through this program, participants will also enjoy forming friendships with other professionals in the field of blindness education.
We provide this training via weekend workshops, online mentoring, and participation in NFB events. The Teacher of Tomorrow Program is a wonderful opportunity to connect what students learn in their courses with the lived experiences of blind people. We encourage students who are presently enrolled in teacher training programs to apply today!
