Teacher Narrative: Lisa
- 244 Downloads
A blind teacher of sighted students in the Midwest, Lisa has spent much of her life defying stereotypes and proving her capabilities. She rejects the term “outsider teacher,” as she has made significant efforts to integrate into her community. Her classroom practice demonstrates proactive inclusiveness and is informed by her own experiences learning to adapt to an environment that was not designed for her. She draws on her experiences of struggle to overcome obstacles to engage and encourage students. Lisa makes a compelling argument for intersectionality.
