Why Become a TVI
• Currently, the field of blindness is experiencing a great shortage of teachers, approximately 5,000 nationwide. If you haven’t yet considered a career as a TVI, we urge you to do so.
• Starting salaries for TVIs are competitive. These jobs come with great benefits, job security, and the opportunity to help improve the lives of our blind or visually impaired children.
