Bring Your Boss to Work Week: November 5 - 9

One of the most common refrains among VI professionals is “I wish my supervisor knew what I was doing.”  In fact, in a recent survey on issues related to performance evaluations, the most common comment was “Ride with me, see what I do.”

Again this year, TSBVI and TAER will partner to sponsor the Second Annual Bring Your Boss to Work Week, November 5-9.

By encouraging your supervisor to spend a half-day with you will be able to increase his/her understanding of

  • the scope of students and the range of their challenges and

  • what it is like to be an itinerant VI professional.

This experience can also provide you with a chance for informal and child-specific conversations about being an itinerant VI professional; about the importance of expanded core curriculum programming, professional development and a chance to demonstrate how VI-specific resources benefit students with visual impairments.

In addition to the advantages listed above, those who agree to complete a short, ½ page survey will receive a $20 i-Tunes card!  They could also win 1 of 2 free registrations for the 2013 TAER conference!

Information about the Bring Your Boss to Work Week and invitations for administrators have been sent to each ESC in Texas and will be distributed to all of the TVIs and O&M specialists in the region.  The invitations are to be shared with a special education supervisor, a building or other administrator. 

If you have not gotten your invitation or have any questions, please either contact your ESC or KC Dignan.
