I love bumping into pleasant surprises while surfing for other things. Take for example the story of Nicole Kopacz. From the OFVA website: Prior to getting her masters in teaching, Nicole Kopacz was an ABO certified optician for six years. She assisted doctors with patient histories, made and dispensed glasses as well as assisted with contact lenses. Currently, Kopacz teaches a fifth grade class at City View Charter School, in Hillsboro Oregon. She uses her unique combination of teaching skills and experience in eye care to evaluate her students and to ensure they receive proper eye care. Kopacz regularly educates parents and teachers how to detect learning related visual problems.
Take a look at this great PowerPoint that Ms. Kopacz put together on Learning Related Vision Problems.
