Winter 1998 Volume 3, Number 1

Editor's Corner

Just a few quick notes before you launch into this edition of SEE/HEAR. Let me begin by saying I think 1998 is going to be a great year since we are welcoming new staff members to the team. Marie Lopez, new Outreach Administrative Assistant joined us in October. Ann Rash will join the team as VI Teacher Trainer and Connie Watters-Miles will come on board as DB Teacher Trainer in January. We are thrilled beyond belief to have such fine people joining the team.

KC Dignan, Personnel Preparation Program Coordinator, is pleased to announce that we are beginning our search for the Mentor Coordinator Position in January. This position will be responsible for futher developing and implementing the mentor program for pre-service VI Teachers and O&M Specialists. Applicants must be certified in both vision and orientation and mobility. If you are interested in applying for this position or want more information, contact Cyral Miller at (512) 206-9242 or visit our Website at <www.tsbvi.edu>. Speaking of the website, if you have not dropped in for a visit yet, you should! Our Webmaster, Jim Allan has created an incredible resource for families, professionals, and the public at large.

Another new project begins in 1998 when TSBVI in conjunction with Stephen F. Austin University and Texas Tech University will be hosting VI Teacher and O&M Specialist training at TSBVI beginning this summer. Participants will be given the unique opportunity to take courses from a university and work with students attending the TSBVI summer programs.

Look in the "Classified" section for information about the 1998 Deafblind Symposium which will be held in Austin on February 13-14, 1998. A long list of national speakers and presenters from the Lone Star State, and the Deaf-Blind Multihandicapped Association of Texas (DBMAT), our statewide family support organization, will help us bring this event to the families and professionals of Texas.
