Johns Hopkins Offers Program for
Western Maryland Educators

The Johns Hopkins University, in collaboration with the Maryland State Department of Education, is offering a graduate program to prepare teachers of students with visual impairments. The graduate certificate program is open to special education teachers currently working in Garrett, Allegany, Washington, Carroll and Frederick counties.

Scholarships equal to 75 percent of tuition will be available to those who qualify. The program, offered by the Graduate Division of Education of the School of Professional Studies in Business and Education at Johns Hopkins, is designed for certified special educators interested in working with students with visual impairments. Program participants will gain the knowledge and skills necessary to provide accommodations and appropriate instruction to students with low vision or blindness.

Courses will be scheduled in the early evenings and Saturday, and will be held in a central location in Western Maryland. Upon completion of the program, graduates will be expected to work for two years in a Maryland school. For an application, contact Julianne Taylor, program coordinator, at 410-516-8393 or e-mail jbtaylor@jhu.edu.
