Challenges in Teaching: Meet an Incredible Overcomer!

Hello, Everyone!

What are some of the obstacles that you must overcome as a teacher? Maybe your obstacle is juggling the time and organizational constraints of school and family. Perhaps it's the challenges of ever-changing curriculum or a difficult administrator. Sometimes, something as minor as a headache on the day of a tough-to-teach math lesson can loom before us like a brick wall.

Well, today I have the honor of introducing you to an educator who daily faces and triumphs over obstacles that make all of the ones I mentioned seem like a mere pebble in your shoe. Meet Sharon Dudley,  a Pre-K teacher in Maryland.  



Sharon has been teaching for more than 20 years.
She blogs at http://www.teachingwithsight.blogspot.com/  .   Great blog - check it out!!
She is an author/seller on TeachersPayTeachers   , with 123 great products in her shop!
She holds National Board Certification.

Sharon is blind.

Please take a moment to watch this clip and see Sharon in action.

                                       



Wow. I can only say "Amen!" to the teacher's words on the video: "Sharon is amazing!"
Sharon, thank you for allowing me the privilege of sharing your story.
