Bev Sharritt - PATINS Panel

Bev Sharritt is a presenter from PATINS. She fell into the Blind/Low vision teaching field when she shared a doughnut with her future mentor at a long ago genetics conference for biology teachers. She studied at Purdue University (biology education), Butler University (blind/low vision) and Salus University (orientation and mobility). She has worked at the Indiana School for the Blind, and as an itinerant teacher for the blind. Her focus for her students has been on independence in the NOW, and she feels privileged to see the continuing spectacular changes in technology that bring access for students with blindness, and their sighted peers„side by side.
