Crispy braille blog post

TVI, or Teachers for the Visually Impaired, face challenges as educators that are unique to braille for literacy and communication.  Students may “scrub” the dots down, making re-reading impossible or difficult, or they may show up for your tiny 30-minute time slot with fingers coated in dust from the playground or chili-cheese powder from a preferred snack.  I borrowed a verbal cue from another educator who uses positive phrases, savoring the freshly brailled page, saying, “I love the way that crispy braille feels!” I would love to keep the enthusiasm for low vision and blind learners “crispy,” so feel free to offer some comments!  This is where I will share some insights on motivation for low vision learners.
