Full- and Part-time or per diem positions available. School sites located in the greater Boston area.
M.Ed. with current Massachusetts DESE licensure (or eligibility) in Visual Impairments is required though students in need of a supervised practicum experience will be considered based on the recommendation and approval of their university advisor. Strong organization, interpersonal and communication skills are a must, as is a working knowledge of current mainstream and adaptive technologies and resources for teaching both low vision and non-visual learners in general and special education environments.
The Carroll Center for the Blind empowers those who are blind and visually impaired to achieve independence and to lead a fulfilling life.
