That's terrible. I don't know how such people become teachers.

I went to what used to be called the Industrial Home for the Blind: IHB for
short. It is now Helen Keller Services. Anyway, I was supposed to be
learning to be a switchboard operator. This was in 1973. They would play
tricks on me. I would feel as if I was handling things fine, and the
teacher would come up and ask me: "What's the matter? Are you feeling
sick, today?" When I really did have a headache and feel lousy, I would be
told: "Oh, you are doing so well, today!" Finally one day, my mother and I
were called into my counselor's office for a meeting. I was told that I was
not doing well in switchboard. I couldn't figure out why. They then told
me they didn't know what else they could do for me, and they suggested I go
to the epilepsy foundation, and see if they could help me. The way they
treated me got me extremely depressed. Pam.

Hi all,

Wow! Not much I can say here except that the system needs to change.
All I want to do is send you hugs! That won't help in the long-run, but you
are special, did you know that? God breaks the mold every, single, time He
makes a new person. There's nobody like you! You are His singular
creation. He made you, and he loves you! Don't let anybody tell you
anything different!

Een I was in comfuter training, I asked my teacher to teach me the
VersaBraille. I thought that was the greatest thing when I saw a
braille display word processor. She told me that I could not learn it
and that I was not as smart as the student that was presently learning
it. That is no teacher. A teachg that discourages someone when they
show an interest, is not a true teacher. They are lazn. That other
person was very highly esteemed. But they walked off their job
without notifying anyone, and got someone in the family way. `you
still estemmed them. They trashed me because of health issues. They
did not like me and they did not want to see me get ahead. They did
not want to help me, because they felt that I would be an
embarrassment to them and ruin their reputation by becoming ill and
needing to be off the job or leave the job because of my health. I
got so depressed about being degraded and bullied, and verbally
abused, that after ssx months of that, I left the program for
professional psychiatric help. The teacher was very mean. She jd
tell me that my Seeing Eye dog was going to die.
Even the other student yelled at her for that. Then when I left the
program, my state counselor in Phily imitated her and did the same
verbal abuse and degradation. I moved away from Phily, because I knew
that they would not change my counselor, because the next one would
have followed suit. What a relief it was to move away. I can feel
for Brian. I know what that is like. So I got my very own
VersaBraille through a state grant. I learned how to use it in one
night after staying up all night and reading the 3 volume braille
manual of instructions. I used it constantly. Then I went on to the
Braille Lite. Then the BrailleNote. Then the U2 Mini. The Orbit
Reader 20 is on the way. I am watching the masl for it. Eventually I
will get the BrailleMe, also. That is how dumb that I am. Thank you
for your kind time.
