The Carroll Center for the Blind is seeking a qualified Itinerant Teacher of Students with Visual Impairments (TVI) to provide services in Greater Boston, Southeastern and/or Central Massachusetts. Responsibilities include conducting Functional Vision and Learning Media assessments, direct instruction, and consultation for students ages 3-21 years, including those with additional disabilities. Additionally the TVI will prepare/obtain materials, and work with school-based teams in developing and implementing IEP’s. This is a ten-month position with the option to work summers. Full and part-time positions are available. Additional certification in Orientation & Mobility is a plus.

Requirements:

Current Massachusetts DESE licensure (or eligibility) in Visual Impairment is required, though graduate 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, adaptive technologies and resources for teaching both low vision and non-visual learners in general and special education environments.
