New day, new experiences

I'm staying on this beautiful campus and the weather was glorious once again today!

Met with Sharon today, a fabulous teacher of deaf blind students, here at Perkins and spent time with her class. Some students have CHARGE and Perkins have a webcast about this condition, if you're interested. The idea of their webcasts made me reflect on the fact that it really is thanks to me watching the Perkin's Accessible Science webcasts that I contacted Kate Fraser here. So it really is thanks to these webcasts that I'm here at all, because it was so nice to view someone and get a feel for that person (something that text alone can't really communicate). Kate has been every bit as great as I thought she would be. We really do share so many views on teaching methods of visually impaired students and have already talked about several tactile models that we could make together in the two weeks that I'm here!
