What truly sets FSDB apart from other schools is our dedicated and highly qualified staff members, who work tirelessly to nurture the academic and career achievements of our students. They provide the foundation by which students can continue to gain greater knowledge and skills after they leave FSDB.

Do More

I'm passionate about teaching Physical Education because there are unique challenges to teaching blind and low vision students. Since there is little to no visual access to incidental learning, I have to adapt and provide accommodations to my students who may have achievement gaps in physical literacy. As I see my students learn and grow, I feel that I’m growing as a person and educator.
