Welcome Cindy Adkins!

The newest addition to the TSB Outreach staff is Cindy Adkins. Cindy is working as both a TVI and Orientation and Mobility Specialist in West Tennessee. Cindy worked in Dickson County for 17 years as a Special Education teacher.  While in Dickson, she taught Resource and Inclusion Algebra, CDC Life Skills, and a self-contained, 
 
multi-handicapped class. She returned to college to pursue her Master’s degree and graduated from Trevecca Nazarene University with a Master’s degree in Visual Impairments. She continued to pursue another Master’s degree at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock.  And received a Master’s degree in Rehabilitation for the Blind and became a Certified Orientation and Mobility Instructor. After completing her degrees, she worked in Richmond, VA and then in Champaign/Urbana, Illinois as an Itinerant TVI/COMS. 
Cindy’s goal was to come back home to Tennessee. Upon return to Tennessee, she taught at TSB in the BEST program and in the Work Based Learning (WBL), O&Mmmm coffee shop, WBL job sites and teaching language arts.
  
This year, Cindy has joined the TSB Outreach Staff. Cindy says, “I really appreciate the opportunity and am excited about this new adventure. I have met some really great and amazing teachers, staff, and, of course, students!” I am now "living the dream" of being an Itinerant TVI/COMS for TSB Outreach! I have traveled to nine districts, so far. Having the best support system from TSB and the districts I work in has made my transition run smoothly. I joined the Donelson Lions Club and look forward to learning how to help others within this organization. Life couldn't get better than this!
