My teaching philosophy is to utilize everyday objects to practice braille in fun and meaningful ways. Wouldn't you rather take a pop quiz where you got to write words in braille using M&Ms and then eat them when you're done?!
I founded this online community to build friendships with other braille fanatics, to share learning resources, and to rally each other to keep studying!
