Learners with Visual Impairments Participate in Goal Ball at CMS North!
According to Amanda Ziaer, Principal at CMS North, Special Educator, Keith Wright has gone above and beyond the call of duty this year with the learners served in the VI program on their campus. The VI program is completely new to North and to Keith. He was excited to take on this new challenge and make a difference in the lives of the kids at North. Principal Ziaer states she is continually amazed by the activities he plans for his kids. He has brought in specialists to train the kids, he developed a buddy program to assist them during emergencies, he has created real world scenarios and practices at restaurants and malls. Most recently, they visited Vista Ridge Mall where the group worked together to complete a scavenger hunt through the mall as part of their Expanded Core Curriculum work with Stacey Chambers, Teacher of the Visually Impaired for the district. This week, Keith and Stacey brought in two Goal Ball specialists from Region 10 to teach the learners the game. Keith created the time and space for the learners with visual impairments to be able to have a sport to play during club day. Ms. Ziaer and the Brock staff are proud of Keith Wright and Stacey Chambers and the positive impact each is having on kids lives daily!
